HELP International Uganda is a partnership between HELP International and the Ugandan people in Eastern Africa.

In April 2009, with one teacher and 45 children, HELP International Uganda birthed a free primary school for the children of Masese in an open air shed with some paper and pencils. Today there are more than 450 children and seven teachers in a new school building. Villagers are employed by the school as teachers, cooks, construction workers & brick makers. Prior to the establishment of the school, children ate once every three days. Since 2010 children receive lunch 5 days a week. For most of them these 5 meals are all they will eat all week. We have introduced a sponsoship program, with over 50 children and their familes involved. We have done business and vocational training.
