David Tyler School - Uganda.

We have two hands - One hand to help ourselves and one to help others


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).

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.

Update image


We have so appreciated the support for this project, especially from the Maranatha Christian School in Lower Hutt who totally funded one of the classrooms.

As well as encouraging us with your support for the building project, you sent over school uniforms and other equipment for the school and wrote letters to the children.

You have done an awesome job and kept going with your fundraising for more than 2 years now. Well done!

The school now has 7 primary classrooms, 3 nursery classrooms, a new kitchen with fuel efficient stoves, new toilets and showers (with doors!), 6 staff accommodation rooms and an upgrade to the school office building. The video link was taken before the school was completed

So thank you so much for,


Due to Covid, we now have a new challenge. Many of the students cannot afford the school fees and so are unable to continue with their education.

We have started a one year child sponsorship programme to support some of these children to return to school when the new school year starts in September.

If you would like to help please go to the Givealittle page called ‘David Tyler School Sponsorship – Uganda’
