THE STORY:

My name is Ugo (Pronounced 'Hu-go') and for the past 24 months i have turned the family home i grew up into an early child school which currently has a student strength of Twenty-two (22) young and bright kids.

We have 7 highly trained members of staff (members of the community) who work as Semi-Volunteers ranging from a retired government principal to unemployed but qualified youths. (They are paid stipends).

1. One (1) Headmistress

2. Three (3) teaching staff

3. One (1) Nanny/Caregiver

4. One (1) Security Guard

5. One (1) Driver

Our primary areas of concern before the Easter/ Second term holidays end and students resume schooling by May are-

1. Re-Stocking the library to include new syllabus subjects as prescribed by the government in areas of weaknesses. ($1500)

2. Refurbishment and maintenance of outdoor playground area. Addition of a metal see-saw. ($800)

3. Renovation of old boxroom to create a new learning space (class) for new Primary one (grade one) pupils. Costs include

-paint job,

-partitioning with hardboard,

-furniture,

-learning aids and

-posters.

($1400)

4. 5 desktop computers for teaching pupils computer science in Primary 3 and above. We strongly believe a digital background for our pupils will put them in good stead in a rapidly digitalised world.

- specs. 5units of 2.8ghz + 250gb HDD + 2gb RAM + 14inch TFT screen. $180 each.

($900)

5. The best for last!. New young pupils aged 2-6 will be awarded free tuition and supplies for a full term. (We hope to add more scholarship pupils every year).

They will be nominated by parents and members of the community and 5 lucky new pupils will be selected by a 5 man committee comprising community leaders, school management and a government social worker.

Each schorlarship is worth $600 per child.

($3000)

We strongly believe that these children deserve a better schooling environment and with your support, we hope to show you the faces of the lucky kids you have helped a secure a bright future.

Little drops of water make up the oceans and no contribution is too little or too big.
