Derelict school becomes an amazing place

Unlike the UK and other parts of the western world, there is no free state education in Uganda. 

One of Aim for Change's first projects was the reconstruction of a derelict school, which was to become known as the Amazing Grace School and Orphanage.  Around 300 children, whose parents are able to pay for their education, attend his school. Aim for Change feeds all the orphans on a daily basis.

At first, the children sat, learned and worked on the ground.  We have since built a three-roomed administration block, a classroom building catering for two classes and seating 120 children, a further classroom building housing three classes and a new toilet block. All the children also have desks provided by the charity. 

A further three buildings have been added, comprising a school hall, a church and a conference centre.

A freshwater borehole has been installed, which is used by the school children and the wider community.
