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.

Children walking home after school


We have started a large self sufficiency program  with a coffee plantation in 2019. Since then the land has been cleared, terraced, irrigated and planted with 22,500 coffee bushes. We expect our first small crop this year but in due course it should cover all running costs for the schools.

The Dr Paul Nursery School at Lady Grace is now completed. It has its own toilet block and will be a massive change from the old wooden building which was incredibly hot with its tin roof and no ceiling, but also leaked terribly when raining.


Be a Kitchen Buddy. We asked you to support us in raising funds for a smoke free ecological kitchen run on recycled waste. This is now being complete at Lugala but we want to introduce them elsewhere. Thank you.

New playgrounds for all three schools. We want to encourage children to re-interact after Covid and therefore we want to renew the playgrounds ready for the return of the children.

Beat the mud with paths. The last youth group who went to Uganda have raised enough money to lay brick pathways between classrooms. Previously the whole area was one big mud pond during the rainy season. With paths and drains the mud will be controlled and grassy areas put in place.
