For the Second Year Program, Sister Schools partners with local school children on a fundraising project for a small-scale capital improvement project for a Ugandan school. A supply drive can also take place in conjunction with the Second Year Program fundraising project.
Examples of School Building Projects include:
- Libraries, including bookshelves, desks
- Health & Well-being (latrines, kitchens, wells, bathhouses)
- Capacity Building (classrooms, dormitories)
Examples of fundraising projects:
Fernwood Elementary School puts on an Annual Benefit Concert every year to go towards a specific School Building Project in Uganda.
Schools purchase lightweight, drawstring backpacks and furnish them with designated supplies.
Aviation High School National Honor Society raised funds for a security wall built around the Mukono Boarding School. They sold paper links and had a spirit competition amongst the classes. They linked the paper chain around the school to build their own “security wall” so that students would see the impact and be more involved in helping out with the cause.
