Vineyard Christian School
Soroti, Uganda

Projects Completed:

2016 - Six classrooms completed and upgraded funded by donors from Western Canada

2017 - Two-classroom/administration block funded by donors from Western Canada

Local Contribution: 

Labour and bricks were provided by the school community

Background:

The school was started in 2008 by Christian parents to provide the children in this Teso region with quality Christain education. While some of the student body comes from relatively privileged homes many children live in marginalized families. About 10% of the students are unable to paid any school fees at all. As the region suffered from war from 1980 through 2004, many of the children are traumatized and/or orphaned. AIDS has also taken its toll on the parents’ generation. The school owns the land on which it is situated. At present it enrols over 250 students and there is the demand to grow to over 300 students when additional facilities are complete. So far two classrooms have been completed and another classroom block started but this is incomplete due to lack of immediate funds. The school is operated by a management committee which includes some educators and pastors from various local churches.
