Please help fund an atheist nursery school in Uganda
This one is in Kahendero – a small fishing village on the shores of Lake George, adjacent to Queen Elizabeth National Park. The preschool will be situated on 2.5 acres of property owned by Bwambale Robert Musubaho, above, second from left.
Bwambale, Executive Director of the Kasese United Humanist Association, will be the director of the new school; he’s also the director of Kasese Humanist Primary School (10 miles away) and BiZoHa Orphanage School (two miles away in Muhokya).
Brighter Brains Institute reports here that it raised $27,000 in the last year for BiZoHa, via its BiZoHa.org website and two GoFundMe campaigns. The funds were primarily spent on the construction of 14 buildings – eight are classrooms, the remainder are a kitchen, dining room, dormitories, a clinic and a roadside stand.
Now that funding for BiZoHa is largely complete, BBI is embarking on the Kahendero project, to further its ambition to spread secular thinking across western Uganda.
The new nursery school will be called BiZoHa Nursery School #2 – Kahendero. The budget is $8,768.76 for three classrooms, a kitchen, a clinic, and a latrine.
Although Kahendero is idyllically set between two wondrous natural areas, it is a largely dysfunctional community afflicted by with myriad social problems – crime, drugs, pollution, disease, gambling, prostitution, alcoholism, illiteracy.
Musubaho says that the planned clinic will be “unique”. I will provide free HIV testing and counseling, free condoms, free tampons/pads, anti-malarial drugs and free medical lessons on personal hygiene.
I am sure that Freethinker readers will agree that this is a project worthy of support. You can contribute to the GoFundMe campaign here.
