    SCHOOL CHOSEN

    Following a review of current projects, I have decided to support the construction construction of a fully furnished Early Childhood Development Centre with 3 classroom block and a 4-Stance VIP Latrine for the Nursery Section at St Stephens Nakapinyi Primary School in Mukono District, Uganda.

    A big THANK YOU to everyone who has supported my fundraising efforts in 2019 and especially 2020. With other donations, we have just about reached the initial target of £20,000. For those of you following, you'll know that during the Parenta Trust Rally in June 2019, we found out that following a re-costing of a school build , a full school build had gone up to £30,000 so this fundraising page will stay open for now to help raise the extra £10,000 whihc has been delayed due to the impact of the pandemic on all of us. Whilst I appreciate that we are all facing financial challenges it is important we don't forget those far less fortunate than ourselves through no fault of their own especially the very young.

    May I wish you a prosperous 2023 and we hope to commission the school to open in 2024.

    Brief background about St Stephens Nakapinyi Primary School:

    The school is located in Nakapinyi North village, Kasenge parish, Nama sub County, Mukono District, Central region in Uganda. It was founded in 1940 by Anglican Church of Uganda, Mukono Diocese then in 1997 it became a government aided school. In 2004, through Fields of Life the school received support in form of 8 classroom (plus administration office). In 2016 the school received a block, 4 stance latrine for girls (with a washroom) and in 2017 the school received playground materials in form of volleyball and netball posts. In addition, the school is a beneficiary under I Am Girl project (training in making re-usable sanitary pads and liquid soap making) and Basic Education Improvement Project funded by Peter Vardy Foundation in particular; mid-day meals, awards for best performing teaching and students, land purchase and agricultural inputs, teachers’ incentives, teachers’ capacity building interventions such as school management skills among others.

    Situational Analysis:

    Over the years, St Stephens Nakapinyi Primary School has been experiencing a general increase in enrolment; mainly due to government aiding. The growing numbers have continued to exert pressure on available school’s infrastructure. Currently, the school has children population of 579 i.e. 319 boys (55%) and 260 girls (45%), 22 teachers i.e. 04 male teachers and 18 female teachers. 3% (19/579) of the pupils are supported through the Fields of life sponsorship program. The school’s performance in national examinations is average. Out of 65 candidates who sat for 2017 National Examinations. Majority, 66% (43/65 i.e. 16 boys and 27 girl) passed in Division 2 while 18% (12/65 –i.e.05 boys and 07 girls) passed in Division 3. 23% (133/579) of the children population at St Stephens Nakapinyi Primary are in Nursery Section in a wooden temporary structure.

    The government of Uganda continues to register significant milestones towards ECD. For example, under the Global Partnership in Education (GPE), the government committed resources to train up to 4,000 ECD teachers by the end of 2017. At the same time, the government is partnering with faith based organisations and other private entities to establish ECD centers, though still at small scale. Despite these achievements, some challenges still remain, especially, lack of safe and conducive learning environment for the pre-school children, in addition to lack of necessary play materials and qualified ECD teachers, St. Stephen’s isn’t an exception to these ECD related challenges.

    It’s against this background, that this project is intended to support construction of a furnished ECD center with a 4-stance VIP latrine for the Nursery section so as provide a safe and conducive environment for the pre-school children at St Stephens Nakapinyi Primary school in Mukono district, in a bid to contribute towards; protection of children rights, for them to be able to develop their full cognitive, emotional, social and physical potential during pre-school learning period.

      You'll all appreciate that the world is facing real challenges with the pandemic especially in places like Uganda. Perhaps it is not the time for the UK government to cut their overseas budget which makes projects like these all the more important. Your support has been magnificent throughout and whilst there is still some way to go and the risk of escalating costs, I will continue to raise money for this cause. Thank you.
