SCHOOL FOR LIFE FOUNDATION IS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT ORGANISATION WORKING IN RURAL UGANDA. WE EMPOWER COMMUNITIES TO HELP THEMSELVES AND CREATE THEIR OWN OPPORTUNITIES.
To do that, we build schools to provide communities with a quality education, including primary and secondary schooling, vocational training and other services – such as employment and healthcare solutions.
With your help we can transform developing communities in emerging countries to become educated, productive, sustainable and profitable places – where people can enjoy a healthy, happy and more prosperous future.
How We Got Started
Two young, passionate Australian entrepreneurs, Annabelle Chauncy OAM and David Everett OAM founded School For Life in 2008. Annabelle and Dave met whilst working as volunteers in Kenya, where they became convinced that education is the only real way to mobilise a community and create a positive and sustainable future.
Determined to build a school in rural Uganda, Annabelle and Dave returned to Australia and raised over $500,000 in partnership with Rotary. In 2011 Katuuso Primary and Vocational School opened and welcomed its first students.
