In Uganda, Nalango Secondary School has some very energetic teachers and students, but no facilities to speak of - just the place Rob would have enjoyed working. Where there was bare earth, Rob's fund has so far helped to build 5 classrooms and 8 latrines - but the school is growing, in quality and size, and more classrooms, water tanks, latrines, desks, teachers' houses are all needed. Work is being carried out through the Henry van Straubenzee Memorial Fund, set up themselves by parents after losing a young son, and who provide a brilliant example of good African development - passionate, efficient, consultative and with a long term involvement in each school and area.

At the end of 2012, we would love to be in a position to be able to provide the school with 4 teachers’ houses, 2 water tanks, 35 x 3-seater desks and £1000 worth of Textbooks. We are hoping to be able to raise £10,000 during the next 6 months.
