Community Project overviews

Types of projects available

  • Agricultural training– Agriculture is by far one of the most profitable industries in Uganda. About 85% of people in Uganda own a personal garden and eat from it. However, few know the benefits and skills of making agriculture profitable and sustainable for their families. With the help of trained farmers, we will provide parents with skills that will increase their income, teach them how to grow their own medicine when sick and farm organically and naturally. Your gift will help develop our school demonstration garden so we can feed our children with healthy vegetables and community members can learn.

 

  • Piggery Farm– Also very profitable in Uganda is the business of selling and mating pigs. It is not only a source of food but can be sold for large amounts to pay for school fees, bride prices, and debts. Your donation will help develop a demonstration pig farm which will bring income and food to our school and training for our parents.

 

  • Vocational Skills Training– Lack of education is a massive issue in Uganda. We endeavor to provide parents with funds to begin vocational training at local schools so that they can create financial sustainability for their families. We also realize that education brings dignity and honor to a family and their children. Your gift will send a parent to school with full or partial sponsorship. They will be held accountable for their progress and implementation of skills.

 

  • Small Business Loans– There are many entrepreneurs in Uganda who simply need assistance getting off the ground. After interviews, weeks of training and accountability, selected parents will be given raw materials to begin their businesses. They are expected to be accountable, grow and give a percentage of their income to the school until the loan amount is satisfied. Your donation will provide them with capital and guidance throughout their business training by a professional.

Building Project Details

Types of building projects available

  • Curriculum Upgrades and Teacher Training Uganda curriculum falls a bit shy of raising readers and critical thinkers. Unfortunately, many teachers fail in these skills as well. With curriculum upgrades, we can upgrade our phonics, numeracy and critical thinking curriculum with a Biblical perspective. Naturally, we have to train our teachers to understand and implement it effectively. These programs and training opportunities, however, come with a high price that your gift can help to alleviate so that we can train and raise great minds for the present and future.

  • Building Classrooms– We have been able to build our primary school successfully, however our nursery and secondary (high school) grounds have yet to be realized. Your donation will allow us to build additional, large classrooms to suit our Montessori/child-centered learning approach. 
  • Additional Land Purchasing Fund- Lira became  an official city in August 2020. This gives our city and school substantial influence and potential in Uganda. With city status, purchasing additional land is not only necessary so that we can continue building, but it will also be challenging as prices have increased. Your contribution will help us to purchase land for future classrooms and eventually teacher living quarters and a parent resource center.
  • Developing School Grounds- A school environment ought to be safe and inviting. We can maintain and upgrade our current environment with a school field for sports, seating tables, greenery, etc. Your donation will cause our students and visitors to feel welcomed and warm.
