Help us build two new classrooms for our expanding school!

Donate to Ruhanga School

The Ruhanga Development School is set amongst the rolling hills of SW Uganda about 40kms past Mbarara on the main road to Kabale and on towards Rwanda. The school is managed by the local PTA and a Ugandan NGO called 'Stand On Your Own'. It is supported by the UK charity Uganda Lodge Community Projects (registered charity no. 1150023).

From early beginnings in 2008 the school has rapidly gained in popularity and today offers education to well over four hundred pupils from the local community.

Part of this popularity is that the school is probably unique in the whole of south-west Uganda in that English speaking volunteers from across the world assist in the classrooms; broadening the children's horizons as well as offering help with the development of much sought after ~ and needed ~ English language skills.

In 2014 the school has over 400 children attending daily, plus a boarding section for teenagers. This requires ongoing funding for salaries, school breakfast, educational materials, maintenance and upgrades. Families a nominal fee to send their children, but the majority of funds are raised through our 'Child Sponsorship Scheme'. It costs just £5.00 per month to support a child, please choose one here if you are able to help: Alternatively, if you are able to make just a single donation, you can do your bit by clicking on the "Donate Now!" button (above) and contributing a fiver.

Please remember we have no admin costs and donating via the above two options is 100% free to us so ALL of your donation goes directly to the children. Help make that difference and build a better future for the children and wider community of Ruhanga by acting now.

Thank you.
