About the charity:
Soft Power Education (SPE) has a mission to “Improve the quality of life through education”. Since 1999 we have been working in the Jinja District of Uganda, where the source of the Nile begins its journey towards the Mediterranean Sea.
We work in three key areas:
Alternative Education, School Infrastructure Development and Livelihoods
Our core programmes include two pre-schools for 180 of the most disadvantaged children from the communities of Buwenda and Kyabirwa, a Special Needs Programme working with over 130 children with disabilities, the Amagezi Education Centre through which we partner with over 1000 P6 pupils from 12 partner schools and the Earth Power Project under which we focus on protecting the environment in the Busedde and Buyengo sub counties.
In 2015, Gulf for Good fundraised to renovate and paint 9 classrooms at Namaganga Primary School under our School Infrastructure Development Programme.
In 2020 we are fundraising to completely renovate seven classrooms at Nkondo Primary School where 605 pupils attend school. This renovation will ensure that the children are learning in safe and inspiring classrooms.
