The St. Andrews Secondary School, Matale Uganda – Girls Dormitory will house over 400 secondary school girls – some of whom are orphans – and help to create a safer and more nurturing school environment to enhance girls’ chances of academic success.
We are almost there ! Your contribution will secure furnishings and materials to complete Phase 3 of the building project.
Many young girls walk 3-6 miles to and from school every day, which creates exposure to Gender Based Violence (GBV) safety risks. When they arrive home they typically have many chores to finish before they can settle down to studies, and if chores are finished late, the lack of electricity in most homes poses an additional challenge to finishing homework. The building of a dormitory on the school campus at St. Andrews S.S.S Matale will reduce the safety risks of walking to and from school, allow young girls the opportunity to focus on their studies and academic success
