Ebenezer Bright primary school is located in a village in Kirinda, Uganda. The school was started in 2006 by the Kirinda Full Gospel Church and all the classrooms that were used were made of mud structures and grass roofs. Ebenezer Bright school wanted to build a sturdy brick classrooms but because of a tight budget that was never possible. In 2013, after receiving a grant from Classrooms for Africa, a two-classroom block with small office and storage space was completed in the property. The school has applied for a further grant to help complete the unfinished three-classroom structure started several years ago. This would enable those students still using temporary shelters to be housed in a secure learning space.
Classrooms for Africa received an email in July 2014 from the excited administrator sharing the success of the students in a recent inter-school sports competition. Their boys’ and also girls’ junior and open netball teams achieved top honours in the recent inter-school competition from among 27 surrounding schools. These Ebenezer Bright teams will now compete at district and then hopefully national level. The staff and whole school community are very encouraged! Let’s help them achieve their other dream of completed classrooms soon!
