Buwoya Muslim Primary School

Number of pupils : 446 (211 boys & 235 girls)

Buwoya Primary School is a very poor Muslim School, situated in a particularly arid area, which until 2007 had no classrooms for the 400 children attending.  Muslim schools often miss out on funding from the Christian dominated local government.  The result is that children have their lessons on the ground under the shade of trees.  In 2008 we were able to construct 4 new classrooms and 8 latrines, followed by teachers’ houses and a water tank all of which made a fundamental improvement to the school and quality of education.

In 2013 we bought 1.5 acres of adjoining land to the school.  Now that we have acquired the land, we have been able to build some teachers’ latrines and washrooms,  plus extra teachers’ houses, which are essential in order to retain good teaching staff.  In 2017 we constructed a bore hole – the importance of this commodity should not be underestimated. Before, the children were spending many hours walking to and from the nearest bore hole 2kms away – wasting valuable time when they could be learning.

The head teacher is a hard working and enthusiastic young man who arrived in February 2018 and appears to have the backing of the PTA and SMC. There are always many people from the community there whenever we visit! This school received many new projects in 2018 so we are now watching to see whether the enrolment increases and the academic results improve.

This is a school that we look forward to supporting again in the near future.
