Our recipients represent a remarkable and unique group of schools located in Uganda. These 3 schools (1 high school and 2 primary schools) share a marvellous commonality, they are all interfaith schools. These interfaith schools consist of Muslim, Christian, and Jewish students, who have put faith-based differences aside in pursuit of collaborative education.
As a result, students have done phenomenally well on their national exams, the previously disparate communities have been united, and higher rates of economic prosperity have been achieved.
An additional commonality that these schools share is the desperate need for schools buses. However, this is by no means unique to these schools, the majority of schools require buses which perform myriad functions that not only increase rates of attendance but also help the schools function in a variety of ways.
