There are many ways, large and small, to help the school. Here are a few current needs.
A recently rehabbed building houses the new BCP Library. Textbooks and Science Lab Workbooks are needed. The students are required to read classical novels in English. Those are in demand. There is a minimum of books available now, but we need to provide many more. The government exams require that specific textbooks be purchased, so we do the shopping in Kampala. You can help make this a better resource for the students on the Bishop Comboni campus!
(All donations are always welcome, but it much less expensive to purchase books in Uganda than to ship. Shipping can take 6 months, and there is no guarantee that the package will ever arrive. Also, the students need very specific textbooks to help them with National Exams.)
CHILDREN'S AID FUND
Sometimes a child loses a sponsor, but fees are still due. This fund lets us help the child stay in school until a new sponsor is found.
Most donations to BCP are “restricted” and can be used only for a pre-designated, specific purpose, like the sponsorship of a child or donations for special projects. Yet sometimes an unanticipated need or emergency arises. A medical emergency is our worst fear.
We need funds on site immediately to help a student in distress. You can make fast action possible by contributing to the Emergency Fund so we can respond to unforeseen crises.
Help Bishop Comboni Keep Good Teachers!
The current on-campus teachers’ housing was meant to be temporary and is beyond repair. Three-family housing units are underway. One has been completed. Five more are planned. The families in the first unit are waiting for neighbors.
There is a Single Staff Building that has been completed except for the furnishings. It is a wonderful design providing 8 private residences with a communal kitchen and eating area, surrounding an open courtyard.
Furnished, this would allow another 8 teachers to live on-campus.
Both situations would inspire good teachers to come to Bishop Comboni and to stay.
Please help us make these dreams come true.
