The Ssese Islands form an archipelago in Lake Victoria in Uganda. Only 11 of the 64 inhabited islands have a school, so many children receive no formal education at all. To address this, an ambitious project was launched in 2019 to build a large primary school on the main island which will offer full boarding facilities. This would give boys and girls from the archipelago a chance to complete their early education. hanks to a generous contribution from the city of Vienna, the majority of the buildings have been constructed. The only crucial element still unfinished is the boys’ dormitory. SPICMA has been asked to fund the roof of this large structure at a cost of £8,500.
This school is an important step in improving the region’s education system and we are very grateful for whatever you can give towards it.
