Donate to EDAPO Primary School (EPS)

Orphan students pay no fees. Your tax-deductible gift will help pay salaries and other expenses of EPS so the school can expand to become a stable Peace-Creating community for Uganda.



Salaries for this school year $10,000 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. In the meantime, help is needed to pay for salaries and for the children's clothes and food not provided by the farm.

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

Meditation tent $8,000

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

Finish security wall around the campus $8,000

The wall that is needed to protect the children is just half finished.
