MA'S JUNIOR SCHOOL (please read)

Our school - MA'S JUNIOR SCHOOL is found in the rural remote town of Tororo in Uganda.
Started with the inspiration from Cathy Robinson Pickett,Julie Sprague and Butch McKay who blessed us with a few school supplies on our volunteer trip to Tanzania intended to raise awareness about HIV/AIDs.This was sponsored by Jaya Belinda of Ma's River Fund.
The school is a foundation of hope to our vulnerable children for impoverished community here in Uganda.

Our motto is "Hope for the Future" and we believe in 3 core values,namely;
Academic excellence
Love and compassion
A holistic development

Our mission is contained in our organisational vision of friends of /

We take care of children from the age of 3 who join our kindergarten section to the age of 16 in our top most class- primary seven.
we have 3 classes of kindergarten and 7 classes of primary level from primary one to primary 7.
Children stay with their caretakers/guardians and a lucky few get picked by our old school van,returning them in the evening after classes to their homes. A majority commute on foot to school as our van is a 14 seater old cargo that can't carry everybody.
we Feed the kids on corn meal and beans but also give then porridge at 10 am daily.
We have 12 staff who volunteer their services.

Currently our urgent needs are in the area of desks for the 3 new classrooms, textbooks and food to feed the children.we anticipate to open with 500-600 children so we might need an urgent addition of 1 improved pit latrine as well for the girl child to improve sanitation

Anything can help make a difference where there is nothing....
Thanking you for your prayers and Support,
