4. UVDA2020STV 013: HILLVIEW PRIMARY SCHOOL
Dates: 10th – 24th October 2020
Project Background:
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 is situation calling for an
immediate intervention which UVDA through its work camp program and mid/long term
volunteering organises activities to assist in bridging the gap and currently we have made over
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 Hill view Primary School by practically getting in the classes with our volunteers
to aid and teach the learners.

advantage
