Build a School in Uganda
St. Mary’s Primary School in Kampala, Uganda is home to many bright children who are committed to earning an education. Father Francis Banura Kaboha, the Priest of Bukuumi Catholic Parish, is humbly asking for Catholic World Mission to assist in completing the renovations of the partially completed school. It would make all the difference in the world for these elementary school students to attend a fully constructed school where they can spiritually and educationally thrive.

Every morning these ambitious students walk into a school that closely resembles a barn. The dirt floor school building is currently being held together by open slat walls that leave no protection against inclement weather or outdoor activity. The children are covered by a tin roof in one school building and are roofless in the other, creating an unstable learning environment. Despite these hardships, the students of St. Mary’s Primary School are persistent and hard-working. Can you help provide the stable schools rooms that they deserve?
How Can We Help?
Our plan is to help Father Francis finish the renovations to the school. You can help the school cross the finish line and victoriously celebrate along with these deserving children in finally having a safe place to learn. With your help, we are able to give the students at St. Mary’s Primary School in Uganda a place to grow as individuals, and elevate their faith as they witness the power of God and His followers.
One school building remains roofless.
