A Letter from the Director Mr. Hanan Bulime
My Dear Friend,
The Bulime Family - Renee, Hanan, Rajeave, Eve, Hanaeve
I greet you
from Uganda where the doorway to a positive future lies in education
for all our children.
in rural areas live in abject poverty, with no school within a 6-mile
walk. In areas where schools are available these poor families cannot
afford the fees, and so their children grow up without any education
people are able to migrate to cities to find education and other basic
services, even more rural children become neglected.
of education has resulted in an appalling illiteracy rate of 45% in
Uganda and a continuing HIV/AIDS crisis. Our economy is suffering because
of so few educated workers for agriculture, industry and technology,
and yet we yearn to be self-reliant participants in a growing world
My dream is
to move Uganda forward—one school, one child at a time-through
education, which is the powerful key that will unlock the door to our
future. I hope you will want to share in this dream by offering your
generous support to the African Rural Schools Foundation.
