Cunina wants to leave a lasting impression in the places where they are active. The goal of our projects is to help the local community become independent and self-reliant. As a partner, you are not just a sponsor but also the driving force behind the realization of the project.

Why has Cunina started this project?

Most of the children at the Adullam Model Primary School in Mbarara are orphans and live in the school all year long. Next to education, they also get food, a roof over their head and medical care.

The living conditions of the students are extremely bad. Because the children are not properly protected from rain, a lot of them get ill and therefore cannot go to school.

That is why Cunina has built a new dormitory that was constructed with locally made bricks. 

We work together with the local community and use local materials to support the local economy, create jobs and provide even more children with education.

I would like to ask a question about Uganda

Why does Cunina operate in Uganda?

Primary education in Uganda is basically free. The classrooms are packed with children and there are not enough teachers. The reason for this is that government subsidies are very limited, so teachers get a very low salary. Besides, going to school does cost money: all students are obliged to wear a school uniform and they need school supplies. 

Cunina works together with two partner schools in Fort Portal and Mbarara.

Cunina projects in Uganda

Uganda is Cunina’s most recent partner country. The operation of Cunina in Uganda has grown spectacularly since the organization came to the country in 2013. For example, we have constructed a new dormitory for 250 boys and new sewing workshop.
