School Building Project
Kiti village in the Wakiso district of Uganda is an area of poverty, the majority of the local people scratch a living from the soil and many families live on less than £1 per day.
One of the real areas of need in Kiti is that of education, in rural areas of Uganda most schools are privately run fee paying schools and many families cannot afford to pay the fees. Consequently a large proportion of the children do not receive even a basic education and of those who start many drop out for lack of funds. The day schools in Kiti are in very poor condition with very few amenities and there is no education offered beyond primary stage. You can help build a school in Africa to change this.
The New School
In order to bring change to this situation we are building a 12 classroom School of ‘excellence’ which will enable pupils to begin at Primary 1 and progress through to the end of their education. The school is envisaged to not only meet the educational needs of the children but also to run literacy classes, I.T. training and practical skills workshops for all ages outside of school hours.
It will provide employment for local people both during the construction stage and also when operational.
The school building commenced on 10th July 2019 and you can track progress in the timeline below.
