Teacher’s salary for a month
As the school expands, we will employ more and more teachers. With your help, we can continue to provide a high-quality education in the middle of terrible poverty. They are all qualified teachers and enjoy a much lower teacher/pupil ratio than in most African schools.
Virtually without exception, all our school staff are residents of the slum and most have been displaced from the troubled north of Uganda. We provide a good job, with long-term prospects, to some wonderful people who have suffered horrific experiences.
In turn, because of their improved income, they are able to help their own families who are also very poor. Employing one teacher has a big impact, not just on the children they teach, but on their families and communities.
