Summary

2021 has precipitated the need for impactful grassroots NPO's to find new and innovative ways to continue their work. Like them, BBS is also innovating with the creation of this fund that will make small grants to our vetted causes network. Our current focus is on the Sserinya Primary School in Masaka, Uganda and their need to supplement funding for the teacher's salaries.

Challenge

The non-profit sector continues to face unprecedented economic and operational challenges resulting from the on-going global crisis and in particular small NPOs are struggling. Funding cuts are faced by many organisations and the Sseryina Community Organisation is dealing with a significant cut in funds for the salaries of the teachers at their primary school. Many teachers are now having to look for work elsewhere and leave the classroom.

Solution

A monthly teacher wage is approximately US$65 dollars in Masaka and this project will help address the funding gap that school is facing and ensure that they can keep their teachers and aids working in the classroom. This project is part of a larger strategy by BBS who are also shipping resources identified by the school inculding teacher aids, reading material and items such as dictionairies which have been donated by corporations in the education sector.

Long-Term Impact

SCOU's vision is simple yet a fundamental right for all "communit[ies] in which all people have equal access to basic education and health and have resources to be able to influence the decisions that affect their lives". Keeping teachers in the classroom helps ensure that the students get the education they need to find work and break the cycle of poverty. The focus of this project will help SCOU continue with their vision.
