Students from Blackburn’s Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School in England will soon arrive in Uganda and spend two and a half weeks helping to develop The Good Samaritan School.
Through fundraising projects the students have raised £12,000 which they are hoping to spend on bringing electricity and running water to the school, which has 250 students aged four to 11.
“We went out to the school in 2010 for the first time and built two extra classrooms.This time we want to hopefully bring water and electricity to the school as well as plaster all the walls, put in windows, build toilet facilities and put down proper concrete floors as at the moment they are just made of dirt.” Andy Buckingham the teacher and project leader said
“Our aim is to try and bring the school up to western standards over the next four years and then, hopefully, it will be taken over by the state.”said the mission head ,according to Blackburn Citizen news
