Our mission is to advance the education, health and well-being of pupils, teachers and communities associated with our three Ugandan schools.


We do this through providing teachers, clean water, brick buildings for classrooms, school meals, a boarding house, and large farming projects to enable self sufficiency.

Lady Grace Nursery School

We are very grateful to Dr Paul Sherrard for sponsoring this new nursery school. The land is being cleared and building has now started.


Schools re-open Christmas fair

After two years without education, we are delighted that the schools have reopened. We are fortunate that due to the generosity of our donors, we still have all our teachers because they continued to have their salaries paid. 

There are continuing challenges because at present students have to be socially distanced which means that there are too many to fit into a classroom. As a result, temporary structures have had to be put in and extra furniture acquired because they all used to share desks. 

Christmas fair

 A huge thank you to all those who organised the Christmas fair and those who attended. This raised over £4000 which meant that we had the funds available to pay for the alterations needed above.

It is still a struggle to meet monthly funding of our teachers' salaries

One more building to go.

We have only one classroom block left that needs a sponsor, this is the senior block at Lugala in the slums of Kampala which will cost £45,000

The playgrounds have been empty for 2 years and the new replacement swings and slides  will bring so much joy to the children to be able to play again together. Thank you
