We are raising funds to pay for the education of the vulnerable children of the community of Bwindi, Uganda. Literacy will break the cycle of poverty in this isolated village
Our focus is secondary, vocational and university education of children who would be unable to attend a program beyond primary without help. We have a sister charity focusing on primary education in Bwindi. In total, we have found sponsors for 136 students for the 2016 academic year. We also have provided rainwater collection, dug 2 wells and added filtration of the water at the secondary school. BCP endowed a position of Counselor at the secondary school in 2016 to assist students who have no role model and limited exposure to future possible employment.

Scientific Calculators

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

nopic

Description

The right tools make a difference! We try to provision our students for the transition to secondary school. It is expensive for rural Ugandan students to go to the next level of education. Scientific calculators only cost $18 each but that is often more than a sponsor can provide when faced with all the mandatory items a student requires to move to secondary. Please help by providing a donation to the Calculator Fund at BwindiCommunityProgram.org or by writing a check to Bwindi Community Program and mailing it to 20 Soldiers Trail, Sedona AZ 86336. It is the little things that make the difference between success and a mediocre attempt. These students deserve all the ammunition we can provide!

Scientific Calculators

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

Students in secondary school in Uganda benefit from being able to use scientific calculators. The transition from primary school requires a lot of provisioning of these students; supplies mandated by the school and personal items for the year of boarding. Bwindi Community Program asks the sponsors to provide a great deal to make this transition comfortable for our rural students. Scientific calculators are not mandatory so are not on the list. But scientific calculators for each student can make a difference in performance. BCP wants to make certain that all the sponsored students have the tools to do well. The calculators only cost $18 each. So much good will come out of so little! Please help the students achieve their goals by having the best tools.

Furnishings for Teachers' Housing

Description

Teaching in a rural school in Uganda is a challenge. To attract and retain good teachers, Bishop Comboni School has erected an eight-teacher residential facility with a communal kitchen and dining room. It is beautiful and construction is complete. The only thing standing in the way of occupancy is the lack of furniture for the building. Bwindi Community Program has started a fund to help the school with this purchase. A donation of any size to Bwindi Community Program at 10 Soldiers Trail, Sedona AZ 86336 would be wonderful. We are a 501c3.. You can provide a Happy New Year for the teachers who dedicate their lives to education in a rural setting. Help retain good teachers for a student body of 700! They will love you for it.

Vocational Supplement Fund

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

Each year we have a new group of students ready to attend a Vocational Institute. They have succeeded in graduating from the four years of secondary school that is required for this move. Not all of their sponsors will be able to support the increased costs of this very important next step. We have established a Vocational Supplement Fund to supplement the tuition, when this occurs.The students will become independent and productive members of society when they complete this final step in their education; nurses, teachers, mechanics, electricians, etc. This final hurdle is not always easily handled. The Fund makes it possible for Bwindi Community Program to put the student in school while searching for a source of funds. It is the difference between success and "almost there"!

Science Lab Workbooks

Description

The Sciences are difficult for most of our sponsored students. Having their own workbook to take notes during a lab project is crucial at exam time. The Science Lab Workbooks are purchased each January for the students. We would like to purchase a supply of workbooks so all the students have this tool. The Workbooks are $15 each and we will need 40 in the coming academic year. They must be purchased in Uganda to conform to the Government Standards for the schools. Check out BwindiCommunityProgram.org or contact Jan Tanis at 204-1135. These students deserve all the available tools!

Textbooks and Science Lab Workbooks

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

Bwindi Community Program (BCP) has learned about the need for Textbooks and Science Lab Workbooks at the rural Uganda secondary school where our older sponsored students study. There are never enough textbooks to allow each student to have one in their possession for a term. They have to be one of the lucky students to find a book in the library when they need it.

Science courses should be accompanied by individual lab workbooks. They allow the student to keep a personal record of the lesson in the lab. It is an invaluable tool in learning some challenging subjects. BCP would like your help to provide these for the students who cannot afford them.

Enhance the education of these students by writing a check to Bwindi Community Program for $15 each textbook or workbook. You may also donate online by visiting our website BwindiCommunityProgram.org. There is hope for a future for these children through education.

Solar Lamps to light up Evening Study Time

See all wishes from Bwindi Community Program

Description

The secondary students go home on break to a very rural village three times per year. They must perform family chores during the day and want to study in the evening. It is impossible in an environment where there is no electric service and only commercial lodges can afford to run a generator. The situation creates lost time and frustration for the hard-working students who return to school for the new term in need of help to regain their proficiency. A simple solar powered lamp would light up their evening and allow that precious study time while they are away from school. A good quality lamp can be purchased for $17 per student. The thirty eight students in secondary school will cheer your kindness.
