2024 Project Story: Uganda Nile River

Nelson Mandela once said, 

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” 

Uganda faces major challenges in providing quality and accessible basic education to children and adolescents. In their school system, each classroom is currently accommodating about 169 students, and the smallest class size is accommodating 148 students per class. This limited space makes it hard for kids to learn and for teachers to teach. This overcrowding is the root cause of why the education system in Uganda struggles and why students don’t receive a quality education. 

This summer, HXP Builders will be building additional classrooms for a primary school in Uganda. This school is the only option for most of the community, and the new classrooms will help hundreds of children obtain the education they need to succeed. About 180 students, both current and prospective, will benefit from the project. More students throughout the community will be able to attend school for the first time because of the new structures, and current students will be able to learn more effectively in the less crowded classrooms. With better access to education, these Ugandan students will be able to, as Mandela said, “use [their education] to change the world.”
