Buikwe Secondary School Program

The Problem

Secondary Education in Rural Uganda faces grave challenges which include poor quality education, insufficient teachers and inadequate teaching space and equipment. Classrooms, laboratories, and libraries are sorely deficient. Poor instructional materials and limited text books lead to the production of ill-equipped graduates who cannot compete with students from other parts of the country for higher education and training opportunities.

The Program

International Needs’ Buikwe Secondary School wants to address these problems and provides a quality secondary education to its hundreds of students graduating annually. However, the school has some improvements to make to position its students for success. It is imperative that secondary students learn practical computer skills. There is an overwhelming interest in information technology, which is a highly employable but competitive field.

Buikwe Secondary School wants to offer IT classes to its students but has only five second-hand computers to serve a population of 455 students. Also, the school’s library is incomplete and poorly equipped, with a ratio of one text book to 30 students, increasing the challenge of teaching and learning. Buikwe Secondary School wishes to acquire additional computers and text books, as well as complete the construction of its library.

Total Cost of Program: $75,000

“I dropped out of school when I was 12 because my guardian could no longer afford to pay my school fees. The only other option I had was to go fishing like the other parentless boys in my village. Later on, an International Needs Community Officer encouraged me to enroll in school where I soon received sponsorship. With this assistance, I was able to continue my education. After years of hard work, I completed my studies with a Diploma in Education. I am the first to graduate in my village! I thank God for International Needs and my sponsor who made all this possible for me.” - Richard
