The school, which is near the northern Ugandan city of Lira, not only provides essential education to some of the poorest children in the region, but also provides a place to sleep to save them having to travel large distances.
Currently the children do not have proper beds, the vast majority of children are sleeping on a simple mat on the dusty floors, with only a minority on old basic mattresses. In addition to this health risk, there is nowhere to hang mosquito nets, which increases their risk of malaria. Last year two pupils died of malaria.
A bed is not only a functional space for sleep, but is also gives each child their own space, a small place to call their own whilst staying at the school.
So, can you help us by buying a good sturdy bed, mattress and mosquito net for a child. Your £50 will help a child to sleep well whilst at school.
For £50 we can give each child a sturdy and comfortable bed, mattress and mosquito net.
