ST.MARK SCHOOLS

Our Story:

In 2010 a child called Mark Mubiru of 6 years was knocked to death by a local taxi motorcycle while taking a long walk of 5 miles to the nearest school. In such a school over 100 children try to cram into one classroom, children would spend the whole day studying on empty stomachs and only 1 teacher for over 77 children. Driven by this injustice, Aaron (BESO-Founder) joined with 80 mothers from his village to start a school for Mark and other children like him with a microgrant of $1600 from Spark-Microgrants, Aaron had started up a community-based Organisation that was providing half bursaries to over 250 children from rural villages to study in the capital and supporting rural women. The school was named after Mark; openned in 2011 with 2 teachers and 100 students, the school started to grow and grow.... and as a result, we have successfully built three level schools filled with happy and healthy children in a country where children frequently drop out of school.

 

The Three Schools Offer Free Quality:

  1. Early Childhood Learning

  2. Primary Education and, 

  3. Secondary and Vocational Education.

 

Services and Student Selection: 

Every single one of our students was chosen because they combined academic promise with a desperately poor background and a great attitude to work. We feed them with meals that develop the mind and body, educate them, and do everything possible to ensure our students grow up with the ability to think critically, innovate, solve problems and able to succeed in future to break their own cycle of poverty.

 

We also increase parents' engagement through school management committees and provide basic health care such as immunizations and testing for Tuberculosis and HIV. Other necessary medical check-ups and treatment are followed-up on by the administration 

 

Education is Liberty and Changes

Everything.
