We are Team Bukona (February newsletter)

A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” –Colin Powell

In May 2017, we started our campaign to build the second campus of Musana Nursery and Primary School after turning away hundreds of students at our main campus because of space. Thanks to our incredible Musana family that supported the vision, in late October, we broke ground on the new school in Bukona Village. In just over three months of construction, the school became a reality. On February 11th , the energy around Musana was like no other as our Primary 5 to Primary 7 students moved to the new campus. Now, we can continue to open our gates to additional children and mold more future leaders with the skills and values that Uganda needs. This year, we will have 1,200 students in just our nursery and primary school! We are overflowing with excitement and the feeling of accomplishment. The journey has not been easy, but we did it!

Together, We Built a School (January newsletter)

In 2017, we asked YOU, our Musana family, to help us build another branch of Musana Nursery and Primary School in the rural community of Bukona to educate an additional 800 children. Our total fundraising goal to build the school was $370,000 and in November, we were still $100,000 short. In the last two months of the year, we raised $116,000!!! Because of you, WE DID IT… We built a school!

Collaboration Through Teaching (April newsletter)

This month we had an incredible team of educators from Flatirons Community Church come and work alongside our teachers at Musana Nursery and Primary School! Unlike most mission trips that have an aim of hands-on service, we believe a successful missions trip is one full of relationship building and collaboration where there can be mutual learning and growth for everyone involved. Our Ugandan teaching team is made up of qualified, intelligent, and energetic individuals that are committed to changing their community by raising the next generation of leaders. The U.S. teachers have broad experience in teaching techniques and emphasizing critical thinking in the classroom. Together, these two groups encouraged each other and pushed each other to be all around better teachers!
