I work closely with a poor community on the outskirts of Kampala.
Hello and welcome to this Uganda page. I’m Helen Owen a Lymm Methodist member and Local Preacher. The picture above was taken in Oct 2017 when we first opened the school. It wasn’t finished but we were able to start using it for classes. I’m with my sons and it was a very special time.
In 2018 we were granted a licence and permit from the Ministry of Education and Sports. We are committed to the poorest children being able to access school and getting a good education. The challenges are huge.
To be able to support the school for the long term I have set up a small charity with an HSBC charity account. I have a few people committed to supporting the school with monthly donations and receive some support from fundraising events. This is the best way to donate as 100% of the money goes to the school and there are no fees.
Please contact me for the bank sort code and account number.
I have a Justgiving page and a Facebook page. https://www.justgiving.com.Search Helen Margaret Owen for both.
There you will find ways to donate, see pictures and videos
I’ve been nominated for an award for the work I do in Uganda.
Watch this space! I go to out twice a year. In May to lead a conference during the school holidays and in November we spend time in the school. This year we took P7 children on a trip out after their National Exams. A trip I was told they would remember forever. If you’d like to join me, please get in touch
