tarlight Family Charity School provides much needed support and free primary level education to over 100 disadvantaged children in the parish of Kibale , Kiboga, Uganda helping them and the community towards a better future. The school is currently very reliant on donations and the number of children that can be accommodated currently fluctuates depending on support. The children who otherwise would not be receiving any education participate in a wide range of classes including craft, sport, reading, writing, English and personal hygiene. The children are also provided with a meal during the day which they may otherwise not have had. Although Starlight Family Charity school does not receive government funding it must adhere to governmental requirements in order to stay operational. With help from our supporters we have been able to keep the school inspectors satisfied that we are cooperating and striving to fulfill the requirements such as the recent completion of concreting the school floor. However recently we were advised that we urgently needed to provide on-site accommodation for our teachers and to provide more classroom space to avoid overcrowding. As well as these requirements we appreciate financial and material support with the day to day running costs including stationary and staff wages.

After two years without being much open due to the COVID restrictions the school is officially allowed to be open again. James and his team are busy trying to organise funding and materials so the children can resume their education, receive a nutritious plant based meal daily and socialise. Your support is appreciated.
