The Budget

UgShillingConstruction and equipment costs

Between December 2006 up to now UgandaKids invested around € 300.000 in the infrastructure. Today the school has ten class rooms, for 60 pupils per class. Furthermore a kitchen and a dining hall has been erected. The school construction has been completed with several latrines, teacher accommodations and dormitories for the pupils in boarding school, a building for administration with teacher offices and an office for the school management. In 2011 a bore hole and a photovoltaic system have been installed. Furniture and necessary equipment for the class rooms as well as scholastic materials and school uniforms were purchased. Construction and furnishing of the boarding school as well as a laundry and another bore hole had also to be paid. In 2016 the constraction of two teacher accomodation houses with eight flats was finished. This helps UgandaKids to recruit skilled teaching staff from outside the district.

 We look forward to your support!
