The Kafunjo Community Project

The Kafunjo Community Project first began in 2015 when our dear friend Bruno Biryomumaisho moved to the village of Kafunjo in South West Uganda and was shocked and saddened by the extreme poverty and dire lack of educational opportunities available to the villages poorest children.

Since then Bruno has been steadfast in his commitment to the children and has since completed the construction of St Anne Mary's Primary School, which provides free education to 350 children and full time employment to 13 teaching staff (not to mention a nutritious school meal daily).

In 2018 Bruno completed construction of The Kafunjo Orphanage which provides a safe and comfortable bed for 140 orphans from the village and surrounding areas.

With the help of his supporters around the world Bruno has purchased land in the surrounding area and begun to grow crops with the aim of making the project self sufficient with food by the spring of 2020.

The next stage for the project is to complete the construction of a school hall which is essential to allow the children to continue their learning journey.

Once complete our aim is to build "The Kafunjo Green School", a secondary school with a strong environmental ethos but prior to this we need to complete the school hall which will become a transitional classroom for the students who are moving up to the secondary school once it is built.

All of the progress achieved in Kafunjo wouldn't have been possible without the support of Brunos supporters from around the world and the GoFundMe crowdfunding platform.

We welcome you to become part of the journey.
