Our Story 

Project Le Monde was first formed to help turn the aspiration of a school to help AIDS orphans into a reality, in Kyengera near Kampala. Two Ugandans started to build a school using iron sheets, but progress was slow because of lack of funding. A chance meeting in London in 2010, resulted in the creation of PLM to support this worthy cause. In six months, a patch of wasteland was transformed into a facility educating local primary aged children – Joy Nursery and Primary.

Since then, we have raised the funds to build and equip another school and we support a third school in rented accommodation. We are also hoping to start work on a fourth PLM school as soon as sufficient funds have been raised.
