Rift Valley Secondary School
Kasese District, Uganda

Project Needing Funds:

Completion of classrooms



Local Contribution:

Bricks, sand and labour


Rift Valley Secondary School is located in the village of Butstumba in the Kasese District of Western Uganda. The campus is situated on around 80 acres of land owned by the school society. The school was started in 2005 by a group Christians who saw the need for a holistic approach to education. While some of the students can afford to pay fees, the founders are committed to providing financial support to needy families in the area. Originally the school was in temporary rented facilities in Kasese town, where the enrolment rose to over 200 students. The school was forced to move and land was secured about 30 minutes from downtown Kasese. With donations from the founders, initial progress was made on building classroom facilities. Unfortunately some of the buildings are incomplete and this has caused the number of students to drop. There is therefore a timely need for funds to complete the classrooms. The school currently offers grades 9 through 12 and will expand to provide primary school when sufficient facilities are built.
