Friends of St. Michael’s Girls Primary School Busembatia Uganda


There is always more work to do. Take a look at our past and present projects.


Whilst we are based in the UK, our work happens far from home. See the map and get an idea for yourself.


None of this is possible without dedicated, hard-working volunteers behind the cause.

St. Michael’s Primary School, Busembatia, Uganda is a government aided school about 88 miles from Kampala and situated in a remote and rural area.

There are about 600 girls and 12 boys, both boarding and day scholars. Most come from desperately poor backgrounds and some are orphans who are given food and shelter by the school.

The charity to support the school was created in 2009 as a means of providing on-going support both practical and financial to this little loving community although our commitment had started a few years earlier.

Notwithstanding the fact that the school is government aided the facilities are extremely basic. Despite the difficulties however the staff show remarkable commitment and the school is a place of happiness.

Jenny had been before, back in 2011 and we have photos and small reminders in our house, so I was prepared, or at least I thought so!

St. Michael’s Nursery School

In February 2015 St. Michael’s opened their doors to start a nursery class for the village. The interest and response has been amazing, and already there are over 100 children (girls and boys) at St. Michael’s. They have expanded and have opened another nursery school in Busembatia. …again with over 100 children.
