The Loving Hearts Primary School
The Loving Hearts Primary School, on the shore of Lake Bunyonyi, Uganda, was founded by Didan Atukunda. It is a sponsorship funded school for orphans and needy children. The school strives to create opportunities for disadvantaged children through a rounded educational curriculum, empowering them to break out of the cycle of poverty. The teachers, however, are extremely restricted, with ever increasing class sizes, extremely low rates of pay, and are in desperate need of training and support to be able to carry on their work. ￼To find out more about this school, please see: www.lovingheartsuganda.org
