The purpose of this fundraiser is to help raise a total of two million dollars needed to constructImani Milele's Lusaka School in Kampala, Uganda. This school will accommodate 1500 students from kindergarten through grade seven, providing for a conducive learning atmosphere.
Lusaka School is home to the Imani Milele Children's head office in Uganda. It is located in a suburb of Uganda’s capital Kampala, three miles from the city center. It was opened in 1989 with three orphans, and since then, the population has grown to 672 students. The school started with a purpose of providing education to the orphans and vulnerable children.
We greatly needed a new school to be built in a new and a much more spacious location. We were able to acquire a sizeable piece of property that could accommodate all that was needed and much more. A plan for the new school was developed, and all we needed was the funding to get the work started.
The challenge was there were no sufficient funds to get the construction started.
Towards the end of 2014, the center was on the edge of being closed by the Department of Education as a result of failing to meet the required infrastructural standards. The school, however, was spared from closure due to the excellent grades the students were making, as well as the fact that the school was providing education to the orphans and vulnerable children, hence providing a service to the country.
A place has been secured, designs as well as bill of quantity for construction of a three flow facility already exist. This facility will accommodate 1500 students in kindergarten and elementary; grade one through seven. It will also house 86 Staff members with over 10 offices.
The project will be constructed in various stages including; breaking the ground costing about $50,000, sub-structure costing $96,850, ground floor costing $192,400, first floor costing $268,925, second floor costing $364,800 and external works costing about $55,800 and much more. If all resources are available, the project time frame will be one and half years. The total cost of the project is $2,000,000.
