About this Fundraiser

His Mercy Christian School an education and community development initiative of Help One Now in Mayuge, Uganda - provides quality education to more than 300 children in the Mayuge District of Uganda. It is also a community hub, investing in future generations through education and development.

The Reality

Kikubo village, in the Mayuge District of Uganda, is one of the poorest villages in the country. The people of Kikubo are primarily subsistence farmers who live peasantry lives. Illiteracy levels are high and superstitious beliefs are commonplace. The area is also continually ravaged by jiggers (the chigoe flea, a parasite that attacks the feet), extreme poverty and disease. 


The School

His Mercy Christian School currently provides quality education to more than 300 students, including a hot meal for students and staff every day. It also serves as a hub for community development work including healthcare, micro lending, leadership development, orphan care and more.

Help One Now sustains the operations of this school and the accompanying development work through our vulnerable child sponsorship program and our Help One Classroom campaign.


The Project

This fundraiser will build a larger, more suitable dormitory for students at His Mercy School. Currently, 17 students are sharing one large room, so there is very little space for privacy or for quiet study.  The new building will have space for 60 girls, which will allow both orphaned children in the Help One Now sponsorship program as well as students whose homes have been determined to be unsuitable for them to have a safe, secure place in which to live. Furthermore, boarding schools are very common in Uganda, so the students that are able will also pay a small fee, which will help generate revenue and offset the cost of the other students.

The dormitory will have rooms for the girls, as well as space for house mothers to help provide a stable, loving environment. There will be rainwater tanks to support washing sinks in each room. The building will also have limited electricity available provided by solar panels, so the children will be able to study at night. This dormitory will triple His Mercy School’s ability to provide a safe, stable learning environment for needy students
