Sironko Demonstration Primary Classroom Improvement
The district of Sironko lies in eastern Uganda, near the Kenyan border close to Mount Elgon. This is one of the poorest areas in Uganda and is seasonally affected by severe rainfall. The infrastructure at the school is in a severe state of disrepair and the majority of the pupils are taught outside in all weathers due to a lack of shelter.
In 2012 we started construction on a series of permanent classrooms for the schools in Sironko and the surrounding area. Sironko is a great example of a community run primary school, whereby the parents and surrounding community are willing to assist with the ongoing construction of the school.
