Together, Let’s Build a High School
The rate of finishing secondary school in Uganda is very low due to family demands for youth to work, early marriage, and teenage pregnancy. Quality of education in schools has deteriorated due to a lack of resources and facilities. Unfortunately, there is also a high rate of unemployment for those ranging in the age of 18-30 years old, nearly 64%.
With such a high demand for jobs, there is a major need for entrepreneurs and job creators. AsOne High School will seek to create a transformational learning environment that will mold young men and women into future leaders for Uganda. Our goal will be to train students whose lives fully reflect the character qualities and leadership principles embodied in the life of Jesus.
Together, let’s make the future now by building the AsOne High School in the community of Namayemba, Bugiri, Uganda.
In 2019, we have three main areas of need:
Facilities, Infrastructure, & Classrooms
We want to offer the best facilities of any secondary school in Namayemba with quality and clean dormitories, great environments for students to grow and study, science and computer labs, and spacious classrooms full of learning aids. We want to inspire new possibilities for development and attract families from neighboring areas. This will help grow the economy in the community of Namayemba and allow us to serve the most vulnerable students in the village.
Our facilities needs:
CLASSROOM BLOCK (4 CLASSROOMS)
BOYS AND GIRLS DORMS
STUDENT HALL + KITCHEN
STAFF & HUMAN RESOURCES
We believe in investing a strong local leadership and staff. AsOne would not be where it is today without the integrity, passion, and hard work of our Ugandan staff who operate all of our projects. As a result, AsOne emphasizes the need to care for our team as much as possible. Along with competitive salaries, we offer some of our staff members housing and utilities. We want to further invest in the staff of the future AsOne High School to increase and raise the quality and standard of education in the community.
Our human resource needs:
COOK, SECURITY, COMPOUND MANAGER
Equipment & Start-Up Materials
It is our objective to create schools and social enterprises that can become sustainable. To us, this means that they can generate the income necessary to cover all operating expenses. That being said, schools do not start themselves, and businesses require the necessary capital to “get off the ground.” We project that after five years, AsOne High School will become operationally sustainable. We must help set the standard in the community for quality facilities, equipment, and education.
