David Tyler School - Uganda.
We have two hands - One hand to help ourselves and one to help othersWellington
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 n 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).
Providing an opportunity for people to 'work 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.
Great to see that after a few months of struggles the water bore at the David Tyler School is now flowing with water.
The bore was being dug by hand to a depth of 78 feet or 24 metres when it hit a rock.
Drilling equipment was brought in at extra cost and the drill bit broke. It took weeks to have this fixed and for the drill to return. Finally the rock was penetrated and power installed to the school for the water pump and water is flowing.
The children and local community will no longer have to walk 2 kms to collect water. We are all so happy with this.
