All donations to Friends of Hilary Storm School Uganda go directly to Hilary Storm School Uganda. FOHSSU is run entirely by voluntary effort.
The school’s vision is to reduce the effects of desperate poverty in rural east Uganda through the provision of top quality education that equips children to support themselves and their families. Also to run income generating projects that support the school activities.
