We would like to say a HUGE thank you to QBE and AutoSports Group for supporting our car raffle this year. Without their generous contributions, we would never have raised over $42,000 in the raffle alone!
The winner of the car was mother of 2, Simone Ball. She also has twins on the way so she was extremely excited to own a brand new VW Polo!
Thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets before and at the event!
WHAT A NIGHT! We are ecstatic to announce that we raised $330,000 at our Black Tie Fundraising Ball, thanks to your support!
Thank you to our amazing event partners – QBE, AutoSports Group, Slida, Pickles, URM, Ridgeview Wines, Australian Brewery, APN Outdoor, Seyfarth Shaw and Lime Tree Bower. Click here to read more and see more photos from the night… Continue reading →
Bujuuko is next! Bujuuko is a rural village approximately 10km away from Katuuso, housing around 10,000 residents. The village contains few educational centres, and those, which do exist, are delivering education at a very poor standard. 70% of Bujuuko’s residents are subsistence farmers who have had little or no access to education, and only 3% of Bujuuko’s residents have completed secondary education. That’s why we are building Bujuuko Primary and Vocational School and Bujuuko Secondary School.
Katuuso teacher Annette (featured left) has been selected to undergo professional development. She has been an integral part of Katuuso for the last four years, and now has the opportunity to begin a Diploma of Education. Thank you to the generous donor in Australia who has helped to upskill and empower Annette.
We are very excited to have moved out of the foundation phase of our extension at Katuuso. We are building a Hall, Early Childhood Development Centre and a Tailoring Room.
When students first come to Katuuso, they have never seen a pen or pencil, tied up a shoe lace, done up a button or used a toilet before. We identified the need for a pre-school to help bridge the gap between the village and school, and to increase the quality of education being delivered by School for Life.
