~~Without doubt, these EDAPO children are blessed and are becoming ideal, enlightened, resourceful persons who will play a big role in helping Uganda, Africa, and the world to overcome the ongoing challenges. And they will bring up great families, which are the cornerstone to the building of the nation. We provide them with knowledge of how to live life in a way that is healthy, happy, and life-supporting.~~ Mark Mugabe, Director

CURRENT NEEDS:

Salaries to complete what is owed this school year $11,000 Soon EDAPO will have a mill that farmers in the area can use to grind their grains. The income from this venture will give EDAPO more self-sufficiency to buy clothes and food not provided by EDAPO farm. It will also help pay salaries. In the meantime, help is needed to pay the 33 dedicated teachers and staff. Here are some of them with Dr. Jim Schaefer, member of the Seeds of Heaven Board of Directors, during his visit to the school last June.

EDAPO teachers 6.18

Boys' dormitory $18,000 One more dorm will allow each boy to have his own bed. Now the boys share beds.

Meditation tent and chairs $2,500

Meditation by the adults is done outside. During the long rainy season...they get wet!

Finish security wall around the campus $7,800
