SCHOOL FOR LIFE WORKS IN RURAL UGANDA, WHERE WITH YOUR HELP, WE HAVE MADE A REAL IMPACT WITH OUR COMMUNITY-LED PROJECTS IN EDUCATION, HEALTH AND EMPLOYMENT SOLUTIONS.
Your generosity and the generosity of people around the world helped us establish Katuuso Primary and Vocational School in 2011. In 2015, in partnership with the Cotton On Foundation, we began construction of another primary and secondary school in the community of Mbazzi. In 2018, we are running 3 fully operational schools, employing 120 staff and educating 680 students from pre-school to Senior 1.
EXTENDING OUR REACH
Education has been key to opening up other opportunities in healthcare, agriculture and the environment. We provide health and nutrition services, promote and implement sustainable projects, and we have established tailoring and agricultural programs to promote sustainable economic development in communities where we work.
A FOUNDATION IN EDUCATION – AN IMPACT ON EVERYONE
Our flagship project Katuuso Primary and Vocational School can be found an hour and a half away from Uganda’s capital Kampala. To date we have raised more than A$3.5 million and mobilised the support of thousands of people around the world who have helped us:
- Educate more than 680 students annually
- Employ more than 100 adults in related roles
- Train 15 and employ 10 women as tailors
- Provide 3 nutritious meals a day for all our staff and students
- Provide clean drinking water to the entire Katuuso and Mbazzi communities
- Facilitate healthcare days for the whole Katuuso and Mbazzi communities.
According to the United Nations Human Development Report 2014, the average child in Uganda receives only 5.4 years of schooling. This has inspired us to replicate the Katuuso Primary and Vocational School model and increase our scope and impact in rural Uganda.
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
We depend on the generosity of donors and sponsors to fund our work in Uganda. You can help increase our impact by sponsoring a child, a teacher or you can help us provide 3 nutritious meals a day to students and staff. Change a life and impact an entire community!
