St. Paul's Primary School

St. Paul's Primary School is located in the Mayuga district outside of Jinja, the second-largest city in Uganda. St. Paul's has over 800 students enrolled in classes P1-P7, many of them have been orphaned from the fallout of the devastating HIV/AIDS epidemic in Uganda.

A temporary school structure housing St. Paul's was located up till late 2011 near the new clinic (which opened in 2008) funded by AROH supporters.

However, after the clinic opened, local authorities insisted that St. Paul's be moved further away. Land was secured nearby and building on a new permanent structure for the school began in 2011. Here is a picture of both the new temporary structure (with the finished toilet block on the left) and the new permanent structure just visible on the right from February 2012:

The new permanent structure is now almost finished, and Ronald sent pictures yesterday (May 27, 2012):

A new school semester has just begun and I am sure that the students are looking forward to getting into their new classrooms!
