Divine Mercy Primary and Nursery school
In August 2016 we first visited the community of Buwampa, Uganda. At that time Divine Mercy Primary School was a small school with 50 students and 3 mud classrooms. Since that time, we have worked with our amazing project managers Grace Anyeno and Okello Collins to support the development in the Buwampa community.
During 2017-2019 around 50% of our funding went to Divine Mercy Primary and Nursery school and the Buwampa community.
The results have been awesome!! 2019 has been a fabulous year. We are educating 478 students. We have an enrolment rate of 48.9% girl students compared to the Ugandan National average of 37.6%.
2019 has seen the completion of a multipurpose building which houses a clinic, administration offices, teachers staff room, a library and spare classroom. We have completed a new kitchen and storeroom. Another toilet block and 3 nursery classrooms have been built. We are working on more classrooms.
We have installed 3 water tanks plus 2 tank stand with feeder tanks to provide running water in the teachers houses and staff toilets.
We provided uniforms, scholastic materials, desks, chairs and support to our teachers.
