Phase one is complete, now the filling in of the foundation will begin. The level of work and the pace is simply incredible. Thank you to the whole team.
These new l classrooms are going to be first standard classrooms at Toowa school . They are going to be 25 feet long and 20 feet wide… The whole building block is 100 feet long and 25 feet wide . Each classroom will be able to accommodate about 50 pupils
Foundations dug, materials delivered and work on the build is flying along.
Update from Elijah
Amazing work going on here… Many of the people on the village are very happy as we are buying materials from them. Others are directly employed as builders and porters at the building site.
I have so far bought 8,000 bricks, 60 bags of cement, 10 trips and sand (both lake and swamp sand) and more bricks are being brought at the site
I am now buying enough materials to be around at the building site as this is a rainy season and it may be difficult to bring materials later on when it rains
Thanks to all our amazing sponsors we have reached 96 (that’s another 4 new children’s education secured from a week ago). We are so close to that 100 milestone. Please keep spreading the word for these wonderful children.
And a massive thank you to all our sponsors and supporters. So many generous donations have been coming in for the classroom rebuild project. Keep visiting the website for regular updates too.

Latest from the School. The foundations have been marked out and digging will start tomorrow. No hanging about with these workers
Friends of Toowa are participating in the forthcoming virtual Kiltwalk to raise funds for the children of Toowa, Uganda and we’d love you to join us. If you sign up the team is ‘Friends of Toowa’ and the charity ‘Capstone’.
If you can’t take part but can spare a pound or two we’d be very grateful.
Thank you 🙏🏻❤️
A new website page will be added specifically for this event shortly.
Thank you to all our sponsors we now have 92 fully sponsored children. What an amazing achievement, you are all helping to make amazing changes to these children lives and those of their families.
Update from Elijah:
The wooden classroom block whose roof was blown off has also been demolished. We are now clearing and preparing the place for the construction of the new permanent block. The building of course will be in bits like it was with the dormitory as there is no ready money to do it at once. I would love to say thank you to you all for the support you have already given . With those funds we are going to get the work started. The new classroom block will have partitions so as to cut on the cost of construction and also make the building multipurpose where by it could be used for classes, host functions of the school and of the village when possible, the same block could be used as the school main hall for assemblies and school debates etc
The fundraising is well underway and hopefully my we will be able to make a start on the foundations for the new classrooms.
After the Weather destroyed the old classrooms. The demolition continues
Thank you to all our supporters for your generosity , without you all we could not have completed this. Thank you to Elijah and his team for their dedication and hard work.
