We believe that by working with trusted, local people in Uganda, we can help develop sustainable education solutions which will benefit communities for generations to come. We provide money and expertise to build good quality schools and to equip them with books and resources which will help improve teaching and learning in rural communities.
We also facilitate links between our schools in Uganda and both organisations and individuals in the UK, who are keen to learn more about life in rural Africa.
Story so far
In 2010 two Ugandans, Mrs Kyakulumbye and Mrs Sanyu began fundraising to help AIDS orphans in their local community in Kyengera, Kampala. They had been trained by AIDS Care Education and Training (ACET).
They started looking for a piece of land for a school, and after a long struggle they managed to buy 2 acres of land. They started the build using iron sheets but progress was slow due to a lack of funds.
Around this time Mrs Kyakulumbye's son, Sam Nayinda met with a project member in the UK and started telling him the story of the school. They agreed to form a partnership and turn the vision of a school into a reality.
Using an entrepreneurial approach coupled with strong links with the local community, the funds were raised and in less than 6 months and a patch of wasteland in the village of Kyengera was transformed into a facility educating children between the ages of 5 and 10 years old.
Project Le Monde has now built and equipped two more schools and plans are underway for work to start on a fourth school in 2019.
