At the Buyijja Village School in rural Uganda, it is
not unusual for some students and teacher who have come
from distant villages, to spend the night in the school,
rather than take the long trek home each day. When darkness
comes, their only source of light is small, karosene
lamps that are neither safe, nor practical. The charging/lighting
stations that we will provide, will create solar lighting
and a charging station for each of the three primary
buildings in the school. This provides a safe, secure
way to light their lives...while helping those who come
to volunteer their time to be able to charge mobile
devices for commmunication and education.
We have worked hard to provide books/supplies and teaching
aids, a bathroom, water supplies, and several other
projects to support the school... Now..,LET THERE
Emergency Water Tank Project
After the devistating drought conditions
that have been prevelant over the past year in the Buyijja
region, almost all of the water sources for the village
and the Buyijja village school have been depleted or
exhausted. The well we built has run dry...and the spring
that is more than 2.5 miles away, has become sporadic
Adding to this, climate change has also altered the
regular "rainy season" when the ground water tables
are renewed, and they now start later, and last for
a shorter time. For this reason, we need to build a
rain/collection storage tank system to gather and store
rain water for all uses, including drinking, washing,
This will be the first of many tanks- but we want to
start quickly, and move forward from there, while we
begin raising funds for a new well.
FUNDED!!! THANK YOU to
all who helped us reach this goal!
Our Primary Mission
Supporting the School with Books, Supplies and Teaching
Term School Supplies 2017
original project was a simple one; help provide supplies
and books to a rural village school that had none. Since
our first gift of books, supplies, teaching aids and
workbooks to the Buyijja Model Primary School in June
of 2014, the school has grown to more than 280 students.
The need for these supplies is ongoing, as the school
has three terms.
we feel that education is the lynch-pin toward improving
the lives of all children. And the RESULTS are amazing…
After just two terms of funding, the Buyijja Village
School went from 24% passing their Semester exams to
93% passing! It is obvious the difference that basic
teaching supplies and books make. We have started countless
children on the road to success.
Now, we need to keep the support coming.
Education is the only real solution for the overall
enrichment of the next generation. There are countless
staff and teachers who are giving of their time tirelessly,
to populations that often include as many as 40% of
their students being orphans. The worst thing we could
do at this point, would be to suspend support, after
building up hope. Please help us sustain their future.
