St. Mary’s Primary School, Busaabala, Uganda

Fr. John Baptist Ssonko, the founder of the school, will join us for an important and exciting fundraising dinner to help complete a dormitory to house 228 students who must walk long distances to attend school. These boys and girls are currently sleeping in classrooms which are crowded and inadequate. The dormitory foundations have been built. Now is the time to complete the dormitory so let’s “Raise the Paddle to Raise the Roof!”
