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 two 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 one of PLM’s founders 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.
The funds were raised and in less than six months 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.
