STORIES OF HOPE: EDUCATION
Since HHA first started responding to the refugee crisis in Uganda in 2017, education has consistently been cited as a critical need. Many children were meeting under trees, in schools that had no toilets and a teacher to child ratio, in some schools, of 1 teacher to 360+ children. HHA continues to support refugee and Ugandan children whose education and childhoods were curtailed by war to learn and play in a nurturing and safe environment. Thanks to your support, we have been able to build and furnish Amazing Grace, a primary school block consisting of three classrooms, an office and store which is all fully equipped with solar power and brand-new textbooks. As a result, 628 pupils now attend this school and receive quality education.
Over the next few years, HHA has ambitious plans to expand the school and further improve the quality of education offered to these children. HHA’s planned new building works will enable an increase of pupil enrolment, a higher quality of teaching and conditions for teachers, as well as improve facilities offered to the children. Take a sneak peak of our proposed expansion, including three new classrooms, two offices, an external veranda and sports field.
