Gayaza school in Rakai

Gayaza secondary and Vocational School was started by the community members of Gayaza village, Kasaali subcounty in Rakai District in 1998 and some of the members who started this were professional teachers and social workers. One community member in the names of Rev. Cornelius Kateregga donated land for this school and in 2009 he approached the office of BoHU in Mukono in need of assistance to construct a girl’s dormitory and a building for vocational training section. BoHU has been funding the construction and renovations of the school buildings. So far the school is supporting over 600 students and about 400 of them are girls-and about 150 of them were sexually abused by their guardians and some are living with HIV/AIDS.

 New Hope Junior School (Hope Children’s Village) Mukono- 2013

Children at the BoHU school

Children at the BoHU school

This school was started by Isaac Ssamba the Executive Chairman of BoHU with assistance from BoHU and teacher Moureen to cater for the orphans, disadvantaged children of Kasala village in Mukono District. This pre-primary school  is running in a form a child development centre –  so that our very young children should access pre-primary education nearby. We are still in need of desks, and school materials.  Preschool age is a very important time for young minds.  Children need proper nutrition and healthcare to help them develop more fully to their potential.  Three, four and five year olds are naturally curious about the world around them and are very capable of learning a great deal about how it works.  The first few years of life are a time of growth and immense learning.  A good preschool experience can help children build confidence and view learning as creative exploration.

 At the school we help children discover the world of learning through fun, interactive games and hands on activities. We emphasize the values of kindness, sharing, cooperation, and friendship. Children just learn to develop relationships and we help them understand the importance of working together and respecting one another. We have started with sixty children in our preschool, thirty students in each classroom.  The “Sunshine Classroom” is for our three and four years old children.

Beacon of Hope Uganda registered over 60 children at New Hope Junior Academy School (Hope Children’s Village School) in Kasala village in Mukono District. Beacon of Hope Uganda started a feeding program for children who attend to our school, most who are orphans or living in a very poor household, living on $1 a day.  Our plan was (and still is) to offer a nutritious breakfast and lunch program to 100% of all vulnerable children at school and eventually become a model in the community. Unfortunately, buying the food (maize flour, rice and beans, vegetables, or an egg, etc.) for each child every day has proved not to be sustainable or affordable. We plan to start the garden on a two acre piece of land and the children will be engaged into managing the garden by being represented on the committee which will run the garden and so far we have cultivated one acre and started growing maize (corn) and beans.

This is the only secondary school in the village of Kasala and it was started to support those students who couldn’t afford the fees from other high schools around and its currently supporting about 80 students from disadvantaged backgrounds. The school is supported and funded by BoHU through international volunteers, but programs are in place to make the school self-supporting in the near future. Currently the school is under construction and buildings are being raised for classrooms and dormitories.

Beacon of Hope Uganda feeds over 80 students (especially girls) at Treasureland High School in Kasala village in Mukono District. We offer a nutritious breakfast and lunch program to 100% of all vulnerable children at the school. Unfortunately, buying the food (maize flour, rice and beans, vegetables, or an egg, etc.) for each child every day has proved not to be sustainable or affordable.

 PROPOSED NEW SCHOOL- (Victorius Kindagarten School- Kawanda)- 2015

 

Children to Benefit from school

Children to Benefit from school

This is will be pre-primary school at the orphanage of Victorious Children’s Ministry in Kawanda, so that our very young children should access pre-primary education nearby. There is a building in place which needs some renovations to make them into a real school suitable for Preschool age.

This school is being proposed by Robert, the Director of the orphanage and will be funded and supported by BoHU this year 2014, so that it can be ready to take on children by 2015.

At Victorius Children’s Ministry we have over 20 children and we have to provide 3 main meals a day. This is a nutritious breakfast, lunch and dinner. Unfortunately, buying the food (maize flour, rice and beans, vegetables, or an egg, etc.) every day has proved not to be sustainable or affordable. We therefore come to you with a request, help us by supporting our feeding program.

Sponsor an Orphan

BoHU financially supports orphans who we have placed in orphanage and schools above. “Our” orphans—as well as other children living in these facilities—are in ongoing need of food, clothing, blankets, and medical care.  Orphan sponsorship is $450 per year or about $38 per month per child.

Should you be unable to afford $450, please consider making a smaller general orphan donation, designating its general use for “food” or “medical care”.  Your donation really can save a life!

To donate to support an orphan, please contact us: beaconyouths@yahoo.com

Donate to the BoHU General Education Program Fund

The General Program Fund is important to us.  It allows us to keep our doors open by providing support for overhead and non-specific programmatic activities of the education program.  One of our greatest costs is buying scholastic materials, paying school fees, food and initiating income generating for these children for self-reliance.  The GEPF also provides funding for occasional printing of educational materials for use as seed money for emerging programs.
