Boreholes for Bongo
We raise money to provide much needed access to fresh potable water on school compounds for use by both school and local community. This way the pupils, particularly girls, do not miss any of their education going to fetch water from long distances
Since we began Project Bongo has supported children in education where there may be hardship or special educational needs. We sponsored Monica, a blind girl from Bongo, through her secondary education in a specialist school. We are currently revising this policy.
Apuwongo JSS Project
In 2009 we helped set up a project to build a Junior Secondary School at Apuwongo in the Bongo District. This was funded by donations from Ormesby School in Middlesbrough, a donation from the late Linda Davis and Project Bongo. It was completed in 2016 and local pupils no longer have to cross rivers simply to get to school
