The Kisoro Hill community is raising funds for almost half the cost of this new three-story building!

The Ugandan government has required that Kisoro Hill Elementary replace its wooden classrooms with safer brick buildings.  Two new brick and concrete buildings for 4th through 7th grade are now complete! Since their space is limited, the school now wishes to build a three-story building that will house preschool through 3rd grade, school offices and a library!

Officials have said these lean-to buildings must be replaced

Kisoro Kids has sent funds for over half the cost of the walls on the first two floors and the slab between the first and second floors. The community is raising funds for the remainder. They are also donating much of the labor.

This project provides the materials needed to concrete the floors of the first level of the building. This is the best way to fight back jiggers, which are insects that burrow into the feet to lay their eggs, resulting in painful sores. 

 

This project also supplies the materials needed to plaster the inside of the building walls. This provides a better learning environment by giving teachers smooth walls to display posters, maps and charts. 

We’re excited that we get to help this community provide a conducive learning environment for their children!
