The Building Programme

From July 2019 Kisoolo Primary School will be our main partner school. It is where our volunteer teachers will be based and where our Building Programmes will take place. The first thing we are going to is to build 2 new classrooms. The Parents Association got the money together a couple of years ago to have 2 classrooms built. Unfortunately they were not very well constructed and when a big storm came, the roof was taken clean off. The walls have started falling in and they are not safe enough to be used by the children.

We are going to take down these classrooms, saving as many of the bricks as possible, and build 2 new ones. The new classrooms will be bigger – built to regulation size – and all construction will be overseen by the District Engineer. He has already met us on site to discuss the plans,  to advise us and to sign off on our architect’s plan.                                    

Last July, we built two 4 stanza latrines for Kiruuma Primary School – one for the girls and one for the boys. We also repaired their existing latrines and gave them a rain water harvesting system with two 5,ooo litre water tanks.

Prior to that, our Building Programme has provided Kisoolo Primary School with new latrines and Madudu Primary School with a kitchen, grinding machine, grinding machine shelter, a new staff room, a Rain Water Harvesting System and five 10,000L water tanks, fruit trees, doors and window shutters on all classrooms.  We have renovated the teacher quarters, painted all the classrooms, employed an extra teacher and a school cook and converted the original school building to staff accommodation and a library for the children.We have also assisted St. Andrew’s Kaggwa Secondary School with building materials for their Girl’s Hostel and built a classroom and teacher accommodation for Kawuula Primary School.
