|Areas:||Busia (East Uganda)|
New Foundation Primary School in Uganda owns 17 acres of flat land. The original structure was built by the founding Headteacher, however due to lack of funds the building was unable to withstand heavy rains in early 2006. The funds raised by St Ninian’s High School provided two classroom blocks, containing six classrooms, an office/library, a toilet block and a well to give a good water supply.
Since 2007 other organisations have raised funds to provide further facilities on the site: a boarding house, kitchen and homes for the rehabilitation of street children, specifically boys, called ‘New Life Homes’.
The school now has a total of 166 children and among these 70 are sponsored and 23 coming from the Abaana New Life Homes. They have 9 classes Nursery (2 years), and P1–P7. The school has 9 classroom teachers and a matron who looks after the boarding pupils.
