The Bumba Foundation is a small UK registered charity (established in 2012), which provides sustainable education opportunities to children in vulnerable areas of Uganda through innovative projects and community ownership.
The Story so far
In 2012 and 2013 we successfully raised the funds to build the main school building for two community primary schools in Budaka District in Eastern Uganda. The main building provides education for 200 children through 4 classrooms and offices for the teachers. Following the success and completion of the main buildings we developed plans to expand the schools in 2014 and 2015 to offer all 7 year groups and 2 pre-primary classes through the construction of additional two and three classroom buildings at each school.
The Bumba Foundation Academy in Iki Iki
Through grants, fundraising and our Charity Dinner in 2014 we were able to construct the three classroom buildings and provide the furniture at both schools in 2014, and now provide sustainable education for up to 300 children at each scho
New Two Classroom Building/ Community Hall
To complete the schools we are currently raising funds (£24,900 per school) to construct the two classroom building for each school, which will have a dual purpose and can be converted into a hall for the school and for the community to use at both schools. After the construction of these new classroom buildings we will be able to increase the schools capacity to 450-500 children each year (1000 children a year).
