Challenge

In 2010 a child called Mark Mubiru of 6 years in North Eastern Uganda was knocked to death by a local taxi motorcycle while taking a long walk of 5 miles to the nearest school where 100+ students try to cram into. Driven by this injustice, 80 mothers and BESO started a school for Mark and other children like him with only $1600 budget. Your support helps children like Mark have access to quality education, health care and basic needs and be able to break the cycle of poverty.

Solution

Generous People like you help operate a free high quality Nursery and primary school for over 600 disadvantaged, bright students to become moral and intellectual leaders with provision of free 2 nutritious meals, uniforms, medical care and vocational training. By providing top quality nursery and primary education, children can get into secondary school, and have a chance to succeed in life. This has a spread effect and helps their families and communities develop.

Long-Term Impact

We on our path of establishing model schools in rural districts in Uganda. Beginning with Kayunga District with St.Mark School and we hope in the next two years to have established a high quality Secondary and Vocational School. The two schools will serve as model schools and resource centers for other schools in area. Each school offers scholarships to bright students in need, providing nutritious meals, uniforms, health care and teacher mentorship. We will educate 1500 students by 2020
