Our Projects

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.

PROJECTS FUNDED:

 2017 – 2020

Ray of Hope campaign – Education Bursary Fund

Directly targeting children in the local villages who have no resources whatsoever.

Pilot produce buying project

Famine threatens and rising food prices resulted in the need for this project. Food is being purchased at harvest time when prices are low for use throughout the school year. A planned surplus will be sold at a profit for the purpose of buying food for the following year.

Water project
