Our Primary Mission
Supporting the School with Books, Supplies and Teaching
Term School Supplies 2019
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.
Biggest Project In Our History...
When conditions change, we addapt. But,
are now on track to change generations of lives...
We began fundraising for this project back in 2016, and
then, due to concerns with security, and changes in immediate
needs brought about by drought, the project was adapted
to begin vocational farming, but the building construction
were put on hold, while another well and rain gathering/water
storage tank were constructed.
Adapting and modifying is the benchmark of how the Buyijja
Village school has survived through innumerable challenges.
And now, we are ready to move forward for our most ambitious
project to date.
The school faces three distinct challenges that can be
solved with this project.
1. Temporary Boarding for Teachers and Students
who come from remote villages or are forced to remain
overnight due to inclement weather conditions. Due to
the success of the Buyijja Village School since regular
support for supplies and books began back in 2014, the
number of students has grown substantially, primarily
from under-served villages in the surrounding region.
As these children make the trip by foot, over miles of
jungle and open dirt roads, they often choose to spend
the night, rather than walk in darkness in the undeveloped,
unsafe roads and trails that surround the school. Temporary
boarding, with clean water, sanitary bathrooms, and solar
lighting would provide a safe, if temporary alternative.
2. Vocational Education in Farming, with a safe
storage area for tools, seed, and processing area.
3. Sustainable Food Source that helps feed students
and teachers, while educating a generation of new farmers
with responsible and sustainable agriculture practices.
This project will be done in three phases, the first of
which (Vocational Training and Farming) has already been
started. Construction and remodeling of the existing building
can be done in phases, with the addition of bathrooms,
a well, and rain collection/storage tanks being added
in the second stage. Final stage will include Solar lighting,
and furnishing the dormitory area with beds, work tables,
and food preparation area.
