Rwera Mixed Primary School Ntungamo, Uganda

Uganda

Uganda was dubbed the "Pearl of Africa" by Winston Churchill for harboring one of the most diverse and concentrated ranges of African fauna. Aside from the amazing landscapes and variety of animals, more than half of the population does not have access to electricity. What's more, people don't have access to modern fuels for cooking. Both are fundamental parts of our lives and we want to change these numbers.

Our partner

The project "Help for Deaf Children in Uganda" was founded more than 20 years ago by Gerhard Ehrenreich and helps deaf children and young people to gain access to education and to lead a self-determined life. All employees of the project work voluntarily and all administrative and other costs are borne by the Bavarian Association for the Deaf or by the employees themselves.

The project

The Rwera Mixed Primary School/Unit for the Deaf - Ntungamo currently has no or only a very insufficient and too expensive electricity supply. The solar panels are not sufficient for this school, the batteries are outdated or so weak that the supply of light in the evening is no longer guaranteed. Lessons in the evening hours - as is usual in Uganda - are not possible.  A meaningful leisure activity in the evening or communication via signs (the only form of communication among the deaf) is not possible for the children. Since the schools are financed exclusively through donations, we want to contribute with our donations to making the school a safer place for deaf children.
