Each school will house 150 orphaned and disadvantaged children under five; with volunteers normally sent out to decorate the classrooms before the school opens. It is hoped that Parenta Trust will be able to build 7 more schools with money donated by fundraisers over the coming years - bringing the total number of schools to 10.
Allan Presland, Managing Director of Parenta Group, said: “We are absolutely thrilled that the wheels have been put in motion to build our third pre-school.”
He added: “This pre-school will forever change the lives of the children in Luwuuka, as it means they will be given a basic education from an early age and a chance to better their lives in the future.”
