Story

Our Encouraging Education project classroom in Katanga slum is a safe haven for hundreds of vulnerable children who come every day to receive free education, a hot meal and hope and love. Sadly recent heavy rains in Kampala caused widespread flooding in Katanga slum and our classroom has been very badly damaged. The foundations have partly washed away, the building is subsiding, the window has broken and the roof leaks. The sewage channel running next to classroom has broken its banks and therefore we may need to completely close the classroom and not allow children to use it.

We desperately need to raise £3200 to fix our classroom and enable children to learn in a safe environment again. We want to stabilise the foundations, fix the window and the roof, repaint the damaged walls and put a more secure walkway down to safely access the classroom. Please donate if you can, every little helps and it will make a huge difference. Thank you.
