The boys attending Marani Honors High School in Uganda used to live in an off-campus rental house that was hot, dirty, crowded, and in an unsafe area. Every boy had to share a bed in a room filled wall-to-wall with bunk beds. They would cough because of the dirt and dust on the floor, and they always had to worry about their stuff being stolen.
A new boys’ dormitory has been built, but there is not enough room for all the students, and some of the boys still live in the dirty rental house. We need to build a second floor for the boys’ dormitory and give all our students a safe and clean space to learn and grow during high school.
These boys have been praying for a new dorm for a long time. Steven, one of the boys who lived in the rental house, said, “Out here the security is not good. Our property is being stolen by the community around us . . . Because the house is too small, some of our friends have to sleep in the bathroom.”
Why Is This Project Needed?
Build a second floor for the boys’ dormitory. The dorm has solar power, indoor bathrooms, and showers, and after adding a second floor it will have enough beds for each student.
The total cost of this project is $292,328. You can give young men dignity and help build their self-worth as they grow up to become the next generation of transformational leaders in Uganda.
