Hill view Primary School

Hillview Primary School is located in Buikwe district east of Kampala. The main source of
income and livelihood for the community around is fishing. The project was started by one of the
concern community member and a UVDA member for children of fishermen to also benefit in the prevailing free education introduced by the government.
Unfortunately, government has not taken on the project but the school population is growing at a
faster rate. The teacher pupil ratio is 1:70.The school has no permanent structures with a population which has risen from 500 pupils to 750 pupils. This situation called for an immediate
intervention which UVDA through its activities of both workcamps and mid/long term
volunteering is bridging the gap and currently we have made 20,000 bricks but the classroom
teaching and environment is still wanting. Through the LMTV programme we intend to mobilize the community and improve on the quality of teaching and infrastructure in Hillview Primary
