Palisa School, (situated in Palisa), used to share a building with a local church. It looked more like an air raid shelter than a building for education. Early 2010 saw the completion of Arise and Shine Primary School, a new concrete build, funded by a local business from Northern Ireland.

|Child Sponsorship Uganda||Read More //|
Abaana has been running a child sponsorship scheme now since 1997. We currently sponsor just over 1200 children from Uganda, East Africa. Most of the kids sponsored attend schools that Abaana have funded and can therefore ensure are kept up to the standards required by our child sponsorship program. We also sponsor kids attending schools funded by "Fields of Life", an Irish charity that we would often partner with.

|Mosquito Nets||Read More //|
This year we aim to protect several communities in Uganda, by distributing mosquito nets to several villages around our schools and providing malaria treatment services. With your help we can save the lives of hundreds of babies, children and adults. At each distribution site we will also be providing free medical information about several life saving issues. We need your help to save as many lives as possible so please help us prevent more children from becoming just another malaria statistic.
