Mubaku Community Conservation Organization School
OUR MISSION, OUR VISION
ENSURE MORE CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE THRIVE
THE PATH TO A BRIGHTER FUTURE BEGINS WHEN THE NEXT GENERATION CAN ACCESS QUALITY EDUCATION and HEALTHCARE.
Seeing a generation of kids who needed an education and a sense of community, we decided to start a school in our community in Northern Uganda. It is our goal to set the children on the path to success and to foster an attitude in the community where education is paramount. We want our campus to be a place where students can learn and grow, a space for kids to just be kids.
EMPOWER THE LESS FORTUNATE
ESPECIALLY WOMEN AND GIRLS, TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES
If you invest in health, if you invest in education, great things happen.
Until this school was founded, the closest public school was over an hour walk away from the village center. Attendance was low due to the distance, the lack of protection from Baboons along the route as well as the inability of many to pay mandatory school fees. Often families would send just the boys, while girls stayed home to help with family chores.
|To improve the standard of living for people of Mubaku and surrounding area through sustainable education, health care, crop improvements, environmental conservation initiatives, and job training efforts that reflect national and local priorities.||Addressing social, economic and development needs through education, sanitation, access to clean water and sustainable development in the Albertine region of Uganda.|
“It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Mubaku Community Conservation Organization founded in 2014 by a small group of concerned citizens. Mubaku has undergone decades of neglect in terms of education, infrastructure, transportation, and health care. Money is pouring into Uganda from foreign investment and oil industrialization, but due to our remote location, virtually none of this money benefits our community. Our youth, who lack a proper education, have mostly worked as casual laborers for little pay. Our region of Uganda is blessed with one of the country’s most beautiful parks, Murchison Falls National Park. Tourism is a major part of our local economy. Unfortunately, due to the low rate of literacy, very few members of our community work for the local lodges or as tour guides.
In the four years since our inception, we have managed to build a well so that clean water is more readily available, and opened a school but there is still much work to be done. Our grassroots efforts are beginning to pay off as we have raised enough money this year, mostly through generous donations, to begin construction of our school. It is our sincere hope that through education, our children will help bring a brighter future to Mubaku. I am humbled and grateful by the outpouring of love we have received. We welcome you to join us in our efforts.”
