Children learning under the tree shade and often have to travel over 20 miles to get where they call school 'learning under tree shade'.
Children face hardships learning under trees risking heavy rains which wash away their books and disrupt lessons.
Children learning under the trees with no chairs risk bitten by the snakes and scorpions. We are working hard to save children and create a condusive learning environment.
Children face hardships of having to commute long distances to a meeting point to learn under the trees and often hungry too. Their books are washed away by heavy rain with no where to hide.
To address this problem we have helped build a classroom block at Kyomba PS in rural Uganda Singo Zone. The aim of this initiative is to provide better learning environment for children and provide access to education.
A classroom block can accommodate 300 children at time and used for both day learning and evening classes thus providing a better learning environment for 600 children every day.
A Two Classroom block is multi-purpose; children use it for day and night learning and for adult learning during weekends. In addition, it’s accessible at certain times by local communities for educational and other events.
We mobilised local communities including parents who directly contributed either by providing labour or bricks and stones for classroom construction.
We have renovated three classrooms, providing a safer learning environment for children and ultimately improving grades and wellbeing.
Thousands of children still need help to access education. Together with the community we are working hard to construct more classrooms.
We are half-way there, only constrained with lack of funding. We are racing against time before rainy season starts to save children from learning in wet conditions.

We support women and young people to start economic projects to fight poverty and improve their wellbeing.
We support women in Hoima district with a small loan at nil interest. This project has been a success, all 300 women have repaid their loans. The money has been recycled to support other women in the community.
With a small loan to buy seeds, women have been able to farm their own food and feed their families. More than 650 women in Kyankwanzi Uganda have benefited from this project.
This project has been a success and women are able to sell surplus food in the markets to earn income.
We support young people in their communities to start goat/cow rearing as a means to get out poverty. More than 800 youth working with their mothers, have benefited from small loans at nil interest.
This project is working magic, so far all our loans have been repaid and recycled to benefit other families in the communities.
