With your help, Children of the Nations (COTN) is preparing to open temporary housing for children orphaned by the Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone. 

Our plan is to renovate the school we own in Marjay Town, on the outskirts of Freetown, and turn it into a home where as many as 50 orphaned children can live for up to one year while we work to reconnect them with relatives. If no relatives can be found for some of the children, they will be welcomed into our Banta Children's Homes in Sierra Leone, where they will continue to receive love and care.

(UG) Secondary School (Phase 2)

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility : 
Hidden
 
Prior to 2015, COTN-Uganda sent secondary students to boarding schools. However, this was expensive and the quality of education and housing was lacking. A COTN-operated secondary school not only assures quality teaching, but saves COTN money on boarding school fees and generates income from fee-paying students.
 
COTN began operating its own secondary school for two grades, in a temporary building, in February 2015.
Your gift will help build an actual school building for children in Uganda.
