THE SCHOOLS

In 2002, an idea was born in a seminary dorm room that has blossomed into something far bigger than we ever could have imagined...

SAINT SOPHIA SECONDARY SCHOOL
BUTEMBE, UGANDA

Our newest school, Saint Sophia Secondary School near Lake Victoria, began in 2014 with a donation of land and bricks from the people of Butembe. It is designed to serve 240 day students.

However, the school faced a major obstacle not experienced in other past projects. Even though the building site is located on the shores of one of the largest fresh-water lakes in the world, access to safe water is greatly lacking in this area and the water sources that exist in these communities are often severely contaminated.

Because of this, the school at Butembe is being constructed with an additional aim to promote safe water for the school community and to become a model school. So, in partnership with the International Orthodox Christian Charities (IOCC) water initiative, we completed not only a school building in 2015 but also a solar-powered fresh water filtration and storage system, as well as sanitary facilities through a roof waters harvesting system designed by IOCC.

EVERY DOLLAR CHANGES LIVES

Your donation will help change the lives of thousands of children and

through education, help them to build a bright new future.
