Our secondary students amaze and inspire us.
They are intelligent and driven, fun and kind. They are becoming amazing leaders, spreading love and justice wherever they go!
Here are the specifics:
Where is it?
Gulu, a city in the northern region of Uganda.
Northern Uganda came out of a 20-year civil war in 2007. We saw a need for education, and began Restore Leadership Academy. The school was founded on the vision to give these kids hope, a home, and a fighting chance at success.
Our school is now home to hundreds of students and staff and is one of the top schools in Northern Uganda for its academic performance and sports teams. We are so proud of them all!
-6 grade levels from Senior 1 - Senior 6
- All students live on campus in dorms
- 6 classroom blocks, a library, administration building, kitchen, soccer field and a beautiful main hall!
What does your monthly pledge accomplish? Operations for the school; new construction; salaries for our incredible teachers; three meals a day for our students; sports teams, debate teams and other extracurricular activities; school supplies including textbooks, science equipment, the library and more; water, power, security, medical needs and more!
Although it would cost much more each month to supply all these needs, in combination with your giving, our students each pay a much reduced tuition rate to cover the balance. Having our students and their families pay for their tuition has also been helpful in instilling a deep sense of value and gratefulness for their education. In addition, it helps with future financial sustainability for the school, and they are all proud to play their part!
