CHRISTIAN PRIMARY SCHOOL – Uganda Campus
Since December 2013, perpetual insecurity in South Sudan has forced 4.3* million nationals to flee their homes for safety, and the numbers continue to climb.
With the invitation of Ugandan officials, Harvesters expanded its reach beyond the South Sudan’s borders and into Ugandan Refugee Resettlement Center in order to help provide education for both the South Sudanese refugee children and local community kids who are eager to learn. February 2018 we opened our Christian Primary School to 125 preschool students with plans to expand to Primary 7 over next couple of years. Today, we’re operating at full capacity with 44 school staff serving 513 students!
It is our hope by providing a quality Christian education, Harvesters can expand the reach of the gospel, foster self-reliance, and a longer-term solution for refugee children who have suffered from the trauma and disrupted social networks caused by the conflict in South Sudan.
