Buloba Primary School
Buloba Primary School located in Wakiso District, Uganda, is a government sponsored school under the Universal Primary Education (Free education for all) programme. However, government support is too merger to meet the basic requirements of the school like; meals, ample space in terms of classroom blocks, water facilities, sanitation and scholastic materials. It’s upon this background that the PwC Uganda staff decided to help the school by dealing with one of the basic requirements that the school lacked; a pit latrine. The Partners and staff of the firm collected funds and constructed a six room latrine block to improve the hygiene and general wellbeing of pupils and teachers at this school. This is the beginning of the firm’s intervention. It will continue raising funds every year to further help the school with the other basic requirements needed for the proper education of children.
