There are 2.5 million orphans in Uganda - we can't help them all but we can make a difference to the lives of over 100 children attending the David Tyler School. Some of the children are unable to pay any school fees at all and others struggle so every donation is valued.

This primary school is located in a village called Buzzibwera about 1.5 hours north of Kampala, the capital of Uganda. The school is operated by BCCEF, an organisation whose aim is to help the many orphans and vulnerable children in this community obtain an education.

Education is the key to escaping a lifetime of poverty.

The children of two primary classes meet for lessons outside, as there are not enough classrooms. The goal of the fundraising is to build this community a school with permanent brick materials using 'Interlocking Stabilized Soil Bricks (ISSB).

About us

Working Together to make a difference.

Use of funds

100% of all donations will go towards the cost of school fees, stationery, books and a lunchtime meal for the vulnerable children who otherwise could not go to school.

Latest update

David Tyler School is now almost completed  22 June 2020

Posted by: Dugdale Charitable Trust

Last December the builders began to build 7 classrooms and had almost finished when Covid-19 hit and Uganda entered lockdown. There were 18 builders at the school site who were unable to get home.

We made a decision to send more funding and complete more building work that would otherwise have happened over the next year or two.

They have almost completed the 3 nursery classrooms, 6 staff accomodation rooms, a kitchen with 4 fuel efficient stoves and 2 toilets and washrooms for the staff. We are also considering going ahead with 8 new toilets for the primary school.
