Moonlight Nursery and Primary School
This is a special project under Think Humanity's educational program. We fund it by opportunity/special fund-raisers only.
The school's mission is: To promote literacy among the rural disadvantaged in the community.
Moonlight is in Wagesa Trading Centre in Buhanika Village in Hoima District. The children are Banyoro by tribe. This area is in the Bunyoro Kingdom in western Uganda.
The school began in 2008 with approximately 50 students by Wobusobozi Moses. Today there are nearly 200 students at the school, yet there is not a permanent school building, but more of a shelter without sides with no floor and an insufficient roof.
Think Humanity began helping Moonlight Nursery and Primary School in 2011 and by the end of the year we had constructed a water well nearby the school. Later on, Central Elementary School in Longmont, Colorado became the sister school. They have held several fund-raisers and provided the students with school desks and mosquito nets.
One of our goals is to help them to construct a better building so that children can remain in class during rainy season and so that the desks, chalkboards and other school items will be protected inside a closed building.
As of July 2015 the first brick classroom is finished. Thanks to all the donors and especially to Central Elementary School in Longmont, Colorado and Sharon Naimon-Norton. Central Elementary is now fund-raising for the second brick building for Moonlight Primary School.
