Poverty Alleviation

Support and contribute towards job creation in the local district and beyond in the education sector and other education related sectors.

OUR CAUSES

GWAKABBO COMMUNITY COMPREHENSIVE SCHOOL PROJECT

Over the past three decades a combination of factors has drastically eroded the standard of education in Uganda.  These factors include but are not limited to a) under resourcing of the education sector, b) very rapid population growth, c) frequent and perhaps unnecessary changes in the curriculum, d) inadequate teaching skills, e) reliance on poorly regulated private sector provision for the majority of pupils and students, f) runaway corruption, and g) perhaps the most telling has been the introduction of Universal Primary Education (UPE) and Universal Secondary Education (USE) provision.

OUR WORK

Nursery Project

Past project completed by members of Gwakabbo Board of Directors with the help of donors from Schools in Hillingdon, West London, United Kingdom.

Pioneers of the nursery project graduated in 2014. They are now preparing for entry into secondary education

Church Project

The Gwakabbo Directors had a vision to build a church for the local community. With the support of partners at St. John’s Church Hillingdon and other well-wishers, a church was built in the local area of Kwera in Dokolo District.

DONATE

Support our cause of building a twenty first century community secondary school for the youth in a District (Dokolo District; Lango sub-region of Northern Uganda) where the community continues recovery from the consequences of war over of the past three decades.

We will shortly be accepting donations though our website

About Us

Gwakabbo School Project (GSP)

Gwakabbo School Project (GSP) is a UK based organisation (currently in the process of being registered as a not for profit charity). It was set up in 2019 by a group of like-minded individuals who have worked with children from different ethnic backgrounds in the UK; and understand that education is the key to a successful life for an individual.

The life stories of some of the children they met (some from war torn areas) and worked with have inspired and motivated them to launch this project. They believe that nurturing and developing educational skills of the disadvantaged children in Northern Uganda (formerly affected by three decades of war) can harness local solutions to improved livelihoods of those individuals and their communities at large.Gwakabbo School Project (GSP) is a UK based organisation (currently in the process of being registered as a not for profit charity).
