Building Hope with Skanska

750_7324Driving around Seattle it is hard to miss the construction happening throughout downtown.  There are safety fences surrounding these sites and in big lettering reads one word: SKANSKA.  However, Skanska is more than a worldwide corporation.  For Sister Schools, Skanska is a partner, a supporter, and a builder of hope for children in Uganda.

For many years Skanska has been a corporate sponsor of our Annual Gala making it possible for every dollar to have a greater impact.  Continuing to help Sister School to open the eyes of local elementary schools, we are thrilled that Skanska is a corporate partner again this year at our 12th Annual Gala (more at www.sisterschools.org/gala).

However, Skanska i500_0383s also about changing lives.  During September, employees at the Seattle office held their own school supply drive for Sister Schools.  Amy Paquette, Executive Director of Sister Schools is thrilled with this partnership, “
On behalf of the students and schools we work with in the Mukono District, thank you Skanska for supporting Sister Schools and building  amazing structures and also creating a foundation of hope for our local students and the students in our Ugandan school!”
