Primary School for the TCF Orphanage

We are currently working with the director of the Tusuubira Children Foundation (TCF) to build a primary school in Uganda, Africa for the orphaned and impoverished children in the area.  Public education is a resource that is not readily available to these children, and many will not receive a formal education without our help.  It is considered a privilege to attend school in Uganda, and it is taken very seriously!  Our hope is to provide the orphaned children of TCF with a conducive, sustainable learning environment that will give them the opportunity to not merely survive, but to thrive in life.

Tusuubira means Hope in Lugandan.
