Hopeland School, Kitoola Uganda Global Grant
Rotary Club of Pismo Beach, completed its Global Grant this Rotary year at Hopeland High School, Uganda. This is one of two schools run by Valence Lutaisire of the Rotary Club of Lugzi. The school had no electricity and limited water. The Rotary Club of Mukono and Pismo Beach joined together to install water catchments on all the buildings and 4 large holding tanks for the water. We also installed solar panels on all the buildings, so that the interior and exterior had lights. That done, a new computer lab with 10 computers and desks were added.
Rotarian, Steve Curry from Pismo Beach Rotary
visited the school and gave the first computer lesson the student ever had.
The Pismo Beach and Grover Beach Clubs both sponsor students at the school. Rotary
Clubs or individuals can sponsor a student for 1 year for only $360.00 per year. This is a
great investment and very satisfying type of giving. Sponsors, get letters and photos
from students and soon will be getting face book posts about their progress in school.
