The Budaada Sure House School started as a shed, built by the community in 2008 with 80 student. CSH built a primary school in 2009 with four classrooms in Budaada village, Kayunga District, Uganda, serving 250 children and their families from the surrounding communities. We are the only one in the area that gives free education to the orphans, from 1st grade to 7th grade.
We encourage other children from the community who have parents to register in our school and charge them some amount of school fees to enable us to cover expenses for the total orphans and also enable US to pay wages for our teachers and administrative staff.
THE INSTALLATION OF DESKS TO THE SCHOOL BY FFYIA
In September of 2014 we installed benches/desks for the students.
Thank you Rotary Club of Beverly Hills.
In 2013, with Holland volunteers and other supporters we finally added the roof to the school.
Take a look at before and after photos of the school.
The Sure House Maboga Primary School" located in Maboga Village in Ssese Islands, Kalangala District of Uganda. The school is a 40 minutes ride on a ferry across Lake Victoria.
The island is characterized by high levels of illiteracy, HIV/AIDS, poverty, high birth rates and alcoholism. This culminated into big numbers of orphaned children, unwanted babies and high levels of infant mortality rates. The major source of income on the island is mostly fishing for men while women get involved in selling cigarettes and local booze and subsistence agriculture. It is however, important to mention that the other side of the island is a rich community, white sand beaches and a paradise for local and international tourism.
It is against this background that Florence For Youth In Action decided to intervene and build a school to provide hope for the children of these destituted communities.
In 2007,CSH started to inspire children and their parents on the need to enroll their children in school. Shortly after a group of volunteers and donors from Boise, Idaho in the USA, Holland, and locals helped us build a facility to accommodate volunteers and a space converted into a nursery and no the Maboga Primary School provides formal education to 40 students as we wait for another intake by January 2015.
