PKM School in Uganda serves 350 school age children. An important part of each child’s sense of being comes from being connected. A sense of knowing that they matter in the world comes from being sponsored. We currently have matching funds for Sponsor a Child. For each child sponsored, one additional child will be sponsored. Visit our Sponsor A Child Page to learn what $30.00 a month provides a child.
PKM acquired 12.5 acres of land in Aduku that will be used for the school farm.
PKM in collaboration with the school in Uganda are working together to develop opportunities for students to learn and acquire agricultural skills while eating healthier and nutritious food. A PKM project to help the school acquire production input and facilities is showing promising results. Plans are under way to set up a piggery and poultry unit, which will hold close to 100 pigs and 200 chicks at a time. The facilities will provide learning opportunities not only for students of the PKM School, but also for the neighboring schools.
We believe in the power of education to help end poverty. Our school plan is for the PKM Campus to become a fully fledged Primary School and ECD Center with all the necessary facilities in place. To date, with your help, we have two buildings for teacher housing. Two dormitories that accommodate 75 children per dorm. Three education buildings with a total of 9 classrooms. And the Early Learning Center, which accommodates 90 preschoolers.
Our next priority is to build our Learning Complex Center, which will house the Library, Computer Center, Nurse’ Center, Conference Hall and Administration. The architectural design and details of the center is being developed.
Connect with us and let us restore hope and build dreams for the future in Uganda.
Approx. goal of $250,000
Access to safe water is the most crucial aspect of running an institution, and every school needs safe drinking water.
PKM is in need of a deep water well at the school. The cost of digging one is $10,000. We were blessed by Aduku town council with tap water in 2015 but this is not enough as it is the only source of clean and safe water serving a population of 350 children, teachers and volunteer staffs.
On the 2nd picture, Maliam a student at the Petra Christian School is drinking fresh clean water newly installed at the school for the first time. What a huge blessing! The smiles tell it all 🙂
Early Childhood Development
Children’s futures depend on their early years. They need loving caregivers and safe homes, intellectual stimulation, social and educational opportunities, good nutrition and health care. PKM’s Early Childhood Development programs ensure that the youngest children start their lives in the conditions they need to live at their potential — from the beginning.
Thanks to our faithful donor, the Archer’s families who have donated 100% construction cost of the classrooms for the kindergarten children at PKM. The building is home to 90 children, ages 3-5 in the community of Aduku. We are now in the 2nd phase of completing this project. We are asking more faithful donors to join hands with us by providing a chain link fence around the center, construction of washrooms and a kitchen.
