Renovation of St. Francis Primary School - Bulindo


St. Francis Primary School Bulindo, Kira - Uganda is a catholic church-owned and Government-funded community school located in Kira Municipality, Wakiso District.

The Rotary Club of Najjeera in furtherance of the objectives of Rotary International and the spirit of contribution to its immediate community is supporting the school in the focus area of Basic Education, Health, and Literacy.

Following a needs assessment conducted in November 2017 and subsequent interaction with the school administration, it was revealed that the school infrastructure and learner welfare was sub-optimal hence affecting learning and general environmental conditions of the school; it lacks appropriate classrooms to support learning due to infrastructural defects such as leaking roofs as well as dilapidated floors, walls, windows and doors that are in a state of disrepair. Also, there to the inappropriate staffroom, kitchen facilities, sub-optimal sanitary facilities for pupils and teachers, and inadequate classroom furnishing.

Particularly for the infrastructure, starting this year 2020, the Rotary Club of Najjeera is to implement a project at the school to rehabilitate several structures namely the toilets, kitchen, staffroom, and classroom facilities, as well as classroom and staffroom furnishing.

The following are key areas (proposed project scope) of immediate concern:

1. Classroom structure - The classroom walls, floors, windows, and doors are in a state of disrepair. Also, the roofs in all classrooms were leaking. There will fully rehabilitation of all the classroom structures.

2. Kitchen facilities - The school kitchen was destroyed during a heavy rainstorm resulting in one of the classrooms now being used as a kitchen hence limiting space available for educational instruction. There will be a full renovation of the school kitchen.

3. Staffroom and storage facilities - The space currently designated as a store and staffroom is extremely small. To mark pupils' work, teachers squeeze themselves within their classrooms. Furthermore, both the existing staff room and store are dilapidated and earmarked for demolition to provide direct access for the new church.

4. Head teacher's office - There is no designated office for the headteacher. Currently, a classroom is being used as the headteachers' office thus limiting space available for educational instruction.

5. Hygiene and Sanitation (Toilet facilities) - Although the latrines have been partially rehabilitated, they are structurally dilapidated. To compound the matter, all latrines are almost full and do not have handwashing facilities nearby hence putting the pupils and teachers at a high risk of infection. There will be the rehabilitation of the toilet facilities.


Basic Education and Literacy / Water and Sanitation


On completion of the project, the facilities will be maintained by the School Management Committee to ensure the project serves its intended purpose. Rotary Club of Najjeera will continuously visit the project after handover.


1) Renovation and freeing up of more classrooms (which would have been previously used as head teacher's office and kitchen), as well as staffroom, would ensure a better learning environment for students and better teaching facilities for teachers, respectively. This will fulfill the needs of the community in getting a quality education.

2) Creating improved staff facilities would result in recruiting quality teachers and sustain the growth of the school.

3) Providing hygiene and sanitation facilities would improve the physical health of the student community.
