CTJS is expanding technical, cognitive and affective skills for holistic family development within Kiboga, Uganda.
We work with all stakeholders, including farmers, government and the private sector, to create inclusive economic growth and support the development of thriving rural communities.
While we are providing an education our goal is to ensure these children are fed.
It will provide our students the opportunity to focus on educating themselves and not worrying about a grumbling stomach.
Together we create education opportunities for the most disadvantaged young people to earn a practical education and participate in the community.
With a large community surrounding us we look to provide as many children as possible with the education they need:
From Nursery School To The End of
300+ Children Fed Everyday on average
8 Full Time Teachers & Growing
12 Classrooms & Expanding
Supporting children's medical needs
Over the past two years we have helped improve access to food and income for 50 households.
Hundreds of people are struggling without a reliable source of food and income to support themselves and their families.
CTJS works to address the barriers to family social and economic independence. Our volunteers make sure people have the skills, opportunities and support needed to live more secure and dignified lives.
We are promoting fairer outcomes for agricultural communities. The rural poor, especially women, produce most of the world’s food. In return, they face high risks, a changing climate and very little reward for their incredibly hard work.
The vast majority of poor rural farming communities are unable to compete equally in global markets. They remain stuck in chronic poverty. We work closely in the community to improve agricultural outcomes.
We are on a mission to plant and grow over 800 banana tree's to support our local community.
Our goal is to make our school self-sustaining. Recent donations for two acres of land is a tremendous milestone for us. With your help we plan to farm this land immediately and we are now reaching out for extra donations to plant the bananas trees before the seasonal rains. We'd love for you to be a part of this story. With an extra $627, we will make the plantation complete. Alongside these 800 banana trees, we will also intercrop with beans and Irish potatoes.
Please feel encouraged to donate to our goal and mission to bless this community in Uganda. No amount is too small. Every donation is helping us us make a bigger impact.
Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far.
