Ssegganga Primary School was started about 10 years ago by a local man who wanted to see his community improve with adequate education for the children. A contractor disappeared with his money and he gave up and lost hope. The school was only half finished at the time.
We have visited the school many times and we have grown quite fond of Teacher Alex. Many children still go to school there. Of course, public school is on hold in Uganda because of COVID-19.
During this down time we want to complete the school building and make it good and ready for when the kids can come back to school when COVID restrictions ease.
We will be using Kayonga Hardware Center in Ssegganga for supplies. We have set up this self-sustainable for Paul Kayonga so that he will have a self-sustaining income to take care of his 3 boys suffering from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.
We believe that by helping the community to have a school that they can be proud of, it will encourage more kids to go to school and help Ssegganga to grow. More people will want to send their kids to Ssegganga Primary School.
In turn, more families will want to live in Ssegganga. This will also mean more business for Kayonga Hardware Center as well when people need to do construction on their homes.
