The Bright Future School was originally built by a group of three dedicated teachers from the countryside near by the capital city of Kampala. Currently the school and kindergarten is attended by 246 children from poor families. Eight teachers and two child care workers devote their time to the children’s schooling. The completion of a new building for our seventh grade students as well as the installation of solar modules to ensure light and electricity on rainy day is planned for the year 2018. In order to further show our support of this project, we pay a portion of the teachers’ salaries.

With the objective of promoting initiative, independence and self-organization of underprivileged groups, economic perspectives and the emergence of local civil societies, the Future Foundation for Development of the GLS Treuhand e.V. currently works with 84 partners in 20 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The foundation’s semi-annual newsletter reports on the projects.
