BUILD A LEGACY is a three-year campaign intended to help raise funds to build a new Lusaka School.
Lusaka School Center is one of the eight Christian school centers that Imani Milele Children runs in Uganda. It lies in a suburb of Kampala - Uganda’s Capital, 4 miles from the city center, and it is home to the Imani Milele Children Head Office in Uganda.
Sitting on approximately 14,520 square feet, the small school has made significant contributions to its poor community, providing education to orphaned and vulnerable children, and improving their lives holistically through the work of Imani Milele Children.
The school prides itself in the excellent student grades that it has produced since 2016, making it the best in its school division. As a result, its student population has grown from 420 in 2016 to 672 children and is still growing. Regardless of each child's background and story, the school welcomes them all and has played a significant role in their spiritual nourishment and character development.
Unfortunately, towards the end of 2014, the school was on the edge of being closed by Uganda's Department of Education because of failing to meet the required school's infrastructural standards.
Among the many concerns, the student population had outgrown the classroom and school space. The classrooms were in a poor state - made out of wood, and very small in size. Each classroom is about 25’X20’ with 90 – 95 students, and yet the government's required size is for a 25’X25’ room to only accommodate 45 students.
There is no dining hall, and the food is served from the small-sized school compound. Due to limited space at the school, there is no room or area for building a library, a medical clinic, a staff room, a multi-purpose hall, a play-field, parking space, and a lot more. There is a need for more washrooms as well due to the population size.
