Palissa District is one of the most impoverished in Uganda. Most of the community have little or no income and depend on farming for their subsistence. Many children are undernourished and do not receive any lunch during school days. The families in the region realize the importance of education for improvement of living conditions. While initial construction has been undertaken on schools, many classrooms have no doors, no windows, dirt floors and have never been painted. During the rainy season children huddle to the middle of the crowded classrooms to avoid being drenched. One classroom has no roof. Writing on the uneven ground makes penmanship and cleanliness impossible to include in the curriculum. An administrative block for book storage and learning aids is also needed. The community hopes that this renovation project will help them attain a proper educational environment. They will be contributing skilled and unskilled labor, transportation of building materials, and local building supplies, providing thirty percent of the support for the renovation.
