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 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 was established in 2009 to provide on-going support, both practical and financial, to this amazing community.

Although the school is government aided the facilities are extremely basic. Despite the financial challenges everyone shows remarkable commitment and the school is a place of great happiness. The staff work tirelessly to try and give each child an excellent education…… and a happy childhood.

Every so often it is important to stop and remind ourselves why we have been working so hard at St. Michael’s Girls School for 16 years - and why, with your help, our support now spreads to the development of Bishop Willigers Secondary School, and school lunches at St. Mulumba’s Mixed Primary, 1,200 pupils next door to St. Michael’s School.
