From building playgrounds, libraries, and teacher accommodation to organizing community gardens and an annual football tournament we work directly with administrators and staff to provide our schools with the tools they need to educate Uganda’s next generation of leaders.
After decades of civil war, much of Uganda’s societal infrastructure has been decimated. It is not easy to apply for a loan if you want to start a business or go to school. The Rwot Rubanga Lukica Women’s Group is a team of women who have created what could be thought of as a community bank, Ssubi Foundation has supported their initiatives through your donations. They have a pool of money which community members can request access to for anything from starting a business to paying for school. The fund has incredibly successful both from a financial and community building perspective.
Together, we have built over 15 homes for teachers, all fully furnished. By giving them a place to live that is close to their school we are able to greatly reduce teacher absenteeism.
Together, we provided books, alongside computers, printers, stationery and solar lighting so there is no work interruption for power outages.
