Help us to expand our…
Tailoring and knitting programs
Our tailoring and knitting students are already doing wonderful work; currently making backpacks, school uniforms and jumpers. We would love to expand on this and you can help by:
- Purchasing material to make a school uniform, including shirt and skirt/trousers – $25 each
- Purchasing enough wool to make a school jumper – $5 each
- Purchasing a sewing or knitting machine – $275 each
Cents for Seedlings campaign
We would love you support our coffee initiative at Suubi Secondary School. Our aim is to provide an opportunity for our students and their families to create an income which will help them cover the cost of their own education.
- Students and families will be provided with at least 10 coffee seedling to establish a garden at their home. This will become a permanent project for them, with money raised from these trees helping with education expenses, even beyond their time at Suubi SS.
- A greenhouse will be built in the school compound where students will learn the skills of planting and raising healthy coffee seedlings.
- 20 coffee trees will also be planted on the school site. This will provide further learning opportunities and an ongoing income for the school administration costs.
To get this concept off the ground we are aiming to tap in to our grassroots supports and the coffee lovers of Australia. We truly believe that if many people make a small contribution we can make a huge difference in Uganda; that is why we have come up with our Cents For Seedlings campaign.
We would love you to share this page and/or flyer below with your family, friends and work colleagues and ask them to contribute toward buying coffee seedling/s in Uganda.
By donating 50 cents for one seedling or, say, collecting the change from their own coffee purchases they will be able to buy enough seedlings to support a student to grow coffee trees at their own home.
