Uganda’s Katosi SDA Primary School and Orphanage needs our help.
A few years ago, I volunteered in Uganda at Katosi SDA Primary School. This school also acts as an orphanage for a number of children. Grades one to four are currently being taught in a makeshift shack and the classrooms are too small for the number of students attending school. Also, the classrooms don’t offer adequate shelter from the rain, so come Uganda’s rainy season, students are often unable to attend class.
I’m now embarking on a journey to raise ten thousand dollars through a series of fundraising events, in order to build four adequate classrooms needed at the primary school and help further children’s education in Uganda.
The project will be executed and monitored by local Ugandan organization, The Community Development and AIDS Prevention Services (CODEAPS).
