Kassanda Seed School
Kassanda town is located about 110 kilometres (north) west of Kampala, Uganda. It is a rural settlement of about 275,000 people, most of whom live in extreme poverty. Kassanda Children’s Aid, a board-directed, district-registered charity, was formed in 2014 by a group of Christian women in the US with the hope of providing care and support to vulnerable children and their caregivers in the district. Their desire is to rescue disadvantaged and vulnerable children from oppression caused by poverty which comes as a result of the death of loved ones. One of their strategies now includes Kassanda Seed School, a school that serves about 170 students from Nursery to Primary 5, ten teachers and three other staff. Education in Uganda is not free and school fees are designed to pay for teacher/staff salaries, school materials, food, basic medical care, school uniforms and building maintenance. The current students, many of them orphans, come from families of peasant farmers who grow only enough food to sustain their families. They cannot afford school fees. If students cannot afford to attend school, it leaves them vulnerable to early pregnancies and kidnapping for child sacrifice/trafficking. Your donations help keep these children safe, break the cycle of poverty and make significant contributions to their communities. Full child sponsorship costs about $43 CAD/month which is enough to provide school fees, teacher salaries, food, medicine, school uniforms and school supplies. Kassanda Seed School’s vision is to develop well-rounded, confident and responsible leaders who aspire to achieve their full potential by providing a God-centered, welcoming, happy, safe and supportive learning environment in which everyone is equal and all achievements are celebrated.
