Another new school for Soft Power Education in 2011! Bituli school sits at the far end of the Butagaya sub-county and occupies a very large site. We worked here in the summer of 2011 with volunteers from Middlesex University.
Their fundraising allowed us to make some repairs to some of the neglected classrooms, repair the office/store and provide paint to give the school a new lease of life.
The volunteers quickly set about painting a staggering 14 classrooms that had been left unpainted. They put in a fantastic effort to get the work done despite many thunderstorms that struck the school! Thank you again to the Middlesex crew for all their fundraising efforts!
Once a refurbishment project is complete, we ensure that all partner schools are thanked for hosting our volunteers and that the completed buildings are handed over to them. A tree is planted for each and every classroom SPE works on and pupils are assigned the task of looking after those trees.
