Hope Primary School Busoro began in 1996, with one teacher meeting under a mango tree! It is now KFNL’s largest school with enrollment of 476 students in kindergarten through Grade 7 and 17 teachers and staff. Hope Primary is located in the rolling hills just east of Ft. Portal in Busoro. As we begin this partnership, the needs are great. All latrines are “almost full,” there are no handwash stations, and no sanitary pads are provided as the girls mature.

Hope Primary has a strong academic record. Here’s a report from 2013 : “Hope school was the 6th out of the 214 schools in the district. At the national level out of the 7000 primary schools in the entire country of Uganda, Hope School was the 339th. This special blessing has boosted the morale of all teachers at school.” ~ Pastor Sam Kasule, overseer of HPS. With such great potential and strength, KFNL is excited to come alongside this school to improve health, hygiene and sanitation on campus and to bring particular encouragement to girls there to stay in school and dream big!

Please consider giving to this project so we can begin making a huge difference for these girls!
