In collaboration with the teachers and the local craftsmen the aim is to provide for better education facilities for both the pupils and the teachers.

Furthermore, they were longing for extra classrooms and improvements of the staff houses which were situated on the school’s premises, belonging to the nearby located Church of Uganda.

The ‘Luzira school Uganda project’ is a great example of private development aid as no large or professional organizations are involved.

Those who add their funds – small or large – to the Dutch Luzira school Uganda foundation are assured that their money is invested for 100% in the project.

Currently the foundation and some of the teachers are working on three sub-projects. A proposal is requested from those teachers who are individually responsible for a plan with respect to education equipment (books), sanitary facilities (the toilets) and the staff housing.

And as a result of their involvement the risk is reduced to ensure investments are made without local techniques and knowledge.


Besides the actual developments, in total about 40 children are sponsored by people in the Netherlands. The sponsor pays the yearly school fee and has the option to pay for extra lessons. In return the school’s secretary sends the children’s report on a regularly basis via e-mail.
