Mother Kevin Nursery School
Status: Waiting for a donor
Mother Kevin Nursery School is located in Nsambya, Kampala. The land on which it is built is owned by the Catholic Archdiocese of Kampala and is shared with various community outreaches including the Nsambya Children's Orphanage Home.
The school started in 1998 and is operated by the Immaculate Heart of Mary Reparatrix-Ggogonya Sisters including the principal, Sr. Agnes, and a board of governors. The school was established to provide education for the children living in the orphanage home, but also accepts children from the nearby slum area. Over 300 children are enrolled in three nursery levels including aged 3 - 5 year olds. Local businesses help pay the school fees. Presently temporary wooden classrooms are used. These are small but clean with displays of learning materials and student work. It is obvious that the children are well cared for and receiving a good education. C learly permanent classroom space in needed urgently but land is very restricted. To address the need the school has started to build a three-story classroom block on the same land as the present buildings. So far with the little funds available the foundation has been laid, the framework for the first floor built and the second floor slab poured. More funds are needed to complete usable classroom space on the first floor.
Building applied for
Application was made to Classrooms for Africa for a grant to help complete the first level of the classroom block. This will provide five classrooms and office space. Building materials include concrete, steel and bricks with meal doors and windows.
The budgeted cost of completing the first floor is $25,000. The project can be completed within six months of receiving a grant.
Funds will be disbursed by Classrooms for Africa’s representative in Uganda who will also track the project and provide updates.
