Immediate 'One Time'Financial Expenditures
We are always working for the best for the children in our schools, so there are always projects on the horizon. This page will be updated with our most immediate needs in due course. But please do give now to support our efforts.
Your immediate contribution  will be greatly appreciated. 

Key 'Monthly Recurring' Financial Expenditures
Hire Teacher for 'Top' Class (Upper Kindergarten)
200,000 UGX per month ~ $56 per month

Hire Teacher for P 2 Classroom
200,000 UGX per month ~ $56 per month

Secondary 1 Classroom Opens
700,000 UGX per month ~ $195 per month
The Secondary School has an administrator, as well as an host of part time teachers for different subjects, as is common in Secondary School in Uganda, and throughout the world.  This is a very conservative estimate for what we will need to cover our very basic costs each month in the way of salaries.
Matron on Staff
150,000 UGX per month ~ $41 per month
The children need a full time person - we call such a person a 'Matron' in Uganda' - that is responsible for the daily personal needs of our children (hygiene, medications, emotional needs, etc.)
1 Cup of Porridge for all Students not Receiving Meals
860,000 UGX per month ~ $239 per month

       350 students who live in the community with guardians, come to our school to join our school community and the approximately 60 children who live at AVUSC With the exception of the most vulnerable of these off site 350 children, we have not been able to feed them a meal each day when they come to school.  We desperately which to remedy this situation, but this will cost us alot of money each month to feed them merely a cup of porridge each school day.  We hope that, in the foreseeable future, we will be able to serve them a more 'proper' and hearty lunch, as we do for the children who live at AUVSC

Adequate Kitchen Supplies and Utensils
50,000 UGX per month ~ $14 per month

  We need to make sure that we have adequate kitchen supplies and utensils to be able to manage to feed as many children as we intend to feed.  This modest amount of money does not include the fact that we will most certainly need to enlarge our kitchen staff as we begin to feed all 900 + children and hire more people to prepare, cook, and serve.

Thank you for your generosity and kindness.
