Nansana Royal Primary School
 
 
Although the Ugandan government provides universal primary education, in practice this means attending school with class sizes of 100+ as well as paying for the requirements. Many parents have little option but to send their children to a fee paying school. Nansana Royal now has 150 pupils and charges fees but many families find it difficult to pay the £40/term school fees, particularly in time of illness, which means that the school struggles to make ends meet and children often miss large chunks of their schooling. We are also aware that there are a number of children at NRPS who are orphaned or live in one parent families due to the effects of HIV/AIDS.

Bursary Scheme

By providing regular monthly support of £150 directly to the school through our Educational Support Scheme, we have been able to help them supplement the teacher's salaries, provide stationery for the children and introduce music & sports activities to their curriculum. They have also been able to develop their own local Bursary Scheme to help some of the neediest families who they identify via the school. Through this we aim to be able to help some of these children complete their basic education with the minimum of disruption. This year this 20 children have been able to continue their schooling without necessitating a period of absence.

Supporting the school development

 

We have provided a number of grants to allow the school to develop. These include building maintenance, and projects to grow fruit trees and create a vegetables garden. They have also received books, new desks and arts & crafts materials.

Sportswear

Every child attending the school has been provided with a basic sports kit and shoes. The T-shirts are proudly worn and have “TKT” emblazoned on the back! This has allowed the school to introduce PE lessons and to encourage football & netball teams to compete in inter-school competitions.

Cooking Facilities

Previously they struggled to cook meals for 150 children each day over an open fire. We have provided funds for an “Institutional stove” This has made a huge difference to the working environment of the kitchen, making food preparation simpler and safer and significantly reduces the quantity of firewood used as well as making good cost savings for the school.

The Poultry Project

The aim of this project is to improve the diet of the children. It also generates some income to make the bursary scheme self sustaining as well as helping to support the teachers' meagre salaries. The scheme also provides jobs to locals who look after the chickens. The school now has 250 chickens. We assist with funds to purchase each batch of chickens to replace the older chickens when they stop laying.

Rainwater Harvesting System

The school has a mains water stand pipe but this often does not work. The alternative water supply is a community well about 20 minutes walk away from which the children collect water. Rainwater is a good plentiful supply of water. Guttering and pipe work have been fitted and a new 20,000 litre water tank has been built under the supervision of Water Aid. Students from York St John's University subsequently visited the school & worked with the children to paint a colourful Noah's Ark mural, the result is not only an answer to their prayers for a solution to their water problem, but also a wonderful piece of art work of which they are all very proud!
