Fundraising for Learning

Helping to empower the children and the whole community in remote villages of Uganda

Generous established God’s Grace International Christian Ministry (GGICM) in 2008. It is her passion to make sure every child is empowered to achieve in their life. As GGICM is a non-governmental organisation the parents need to pay for their children to attend.

Generous has been running GGICM school in Western Uganda since 2009. Recently, she has been approached by other villages in Uganda to help them create their own empowerment centre where not just the children can learn but everyone in the community can come to learn new skills. She has teamed up with Shebear, the head of The KoB, to give her guidance and support to achieve her dreams.

In Acii, a village in Northern Uganda, the children need to walk several hours to get to a government school and the young children are unable to make this trip.

They are currently using the church hall to run their learning activities, however this is too small so land needs to be bought and a centre built. They have few learning resources and their teacher, Charles is only available a few hours in the morning as he teaches in a government school too.

We want to raise money to set up and equip a centre in a village. It costs the following which is an approximate at the current UK exchange rate. Any money left over will go towards paying for students who’s parents cannot afford the fees and/or be saved to fund other centres.

Example costs for each centre (Current prices as at 01/03/2024)

Two acres of land2,400,000£500$617
Resources to build centre900,000£185$232
Build & Equip Toilet Block800,000£161$203
Equipment & Learning Resources300,000£60$77
Food for children & staff for 1 mth300,000£60$77
Tuition for 1 child for 1 term24,000£5$6
Total for one Empowerment Centre4,724,000£971$1,212

Taking advantage of the exchange rate the US$ and GB£ goes a long way. ONE cup of coffee (£5) pays for the tuition of ONE child for ONE term. Funds go directly to GGICM and Shebear gives advice about finances and education to help guide the project.
