Be part of the change and help us build a school to accommodate the needs and urgencies of a rural Luuka District in Eastern Uganda.
Earlier in 2018, a campaign was launched in St, Paul, Minnesota to raise $ 350,000 to break ground for foundations of various structures to be set up. These include Pre-Primary, Primary, Secondary, Vocational, and Housing Structures, as well as a children’s playground, farm land and gardens, and an interactive learning centre.
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all those who have donated and supported See Them Grow Foundation for this cause. We would like to express our sincere gratitude for the generous contributions and the amazing efforts spreading and sharing this campaign with your friends and families.
With the funds raised, we have so far managed to purchase 10 acres of land to set the foundation of the building. We acquired contractors and the master planned has been completed and approved by the legal district & government authorities. In March 2020, we will have the official ground-breaking ceremony to lay the first stone of the School Centre.
Phase I Brick laying- ONGOING
Sugar cane plantations have greatly and negatively impacted on the lives of the youths in Luuka district as shown in recent research data. As a way of empowering the youth with skills and knowledge, the STGF has embarked on promoting their lives with purposeful projects like brick-laying which is still an on-going activity at the STGF Land Site in Luuka. This activity has gotten the youths (girls and boys) fully active and has made the team on site more resourceful. On the other hand, they are able to make some money at the end of each week which improves on their income status and lowers dependency levels among families. These bricks will be used by See Them grow foundation to do Ground breaking come early 2020.
