About This Project

When Kisoro Kids started in 2011, students were sitting on logs or unstable benches, struggling to find a way to write in their notebooks.  Through generous donations, Kisoro Kids has now provided over 200 desks for the five community schools.  Each of these long desks seats four children.  But they need more! This project provides 80 students at Kisoro Hill Elementary a more comfortable place to sit, write, and store their supplies. A love of learning at an early age is important and we want to help the children in Kisoro get off to a great start! The 20 desks will be made by local Ugandan carpenters, helping the local economy.

Several grade levels assemble together to greet their guests. Typically, four students sit at each desk.
