Financial Assistance for the construction of Barr christian vocational center in Uganda

Requested by

Barr Christian Vocational Centre

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

Help the youth, orphans, vulnerable children and women who have been in the internally displaced camps in Northern Uganda to train them to be self reliant in the community.
Because of no classrooms, the training is always done under the trees in the compound of the church and the number of orphans, disable children, street children and youth who need training in Barr Sub County, Erute County, Lira District and the surrounding districts of Alebtong, Dokolo, Pader, Gulu, Kitgum and Kole are approximately 300 000 according to our statistics who need vocational training in order to become economically self reliant in the community.
There are 30 acres of customary land given for free for the construction of the vocational school and a hospital for treating the poor community.

What is your project and how will it help?

The construction of the vocational center will increase the number of students’ intake to 1500 yearly from 60, and the courses and departments will increase to 8 and therefore we need 4 class room blocks with each block having two departments. More and more students will be able to become economicallu self reliant.

Secondly we need 3 Dormitory blocks, 2 for boys and 1 for Girls that will accommodate 1500 beneficiaries. Thirdly we need 5 blocks for tutors that will accommodate 20 tutors because each block will accommodate 4 tutors. At the moment our tutors come from very far distance and we don’t have accommodation for them.

Many youth, orphans and children from very far sub counties and Districts will come and get training without difficulties since the institution is a nonprofit and all our tutors are volunteers, well qualified, very hard working and discipline. Besides, the dormitories and teachers’ houses will have been built to accommodate them.

The departments will be as listed below when the school is constructed;
A) 4 departmental classroom blocks as listed down:
1) Dep. For carpentry and joinery
2) Dep. For brick laying and concrete practice
3) Dep. For tailoring and Designing
4) Dep. For motor vehicle technology
5) Dep. For training teachers for preschool children and adult education.
6) Dep. For Electrical installation and wiring
7) Dep. For information and computer training
8) Dep. For painting and Decoration

B) 3 Dormitory blocks
1) 2 blocks for boys
2) 1 block for girls
C) 5 blocks for teachers’ residence that will accommodate 20 tutors.

D) 1 dining hall which will accommodate 1500 students

How can other people partner with you on your project?

Other people can partner with our project by fund raising for the construction of the vocational school. This is because we lack funds for the construction.

Please detail the resources that you need.

Total amount needed for the whole construction as per attached file is 6,183,898.00 USD.

    Barr christian vocational center says: Dear Sir/Madam
    Thank you very much for your information. Please what i don't understand is that are you asking for financial assistance from us, or you want to assist us with funds for the construction of the vocational school for training orphans? If you are asking for funds from us then i am sorry we don't have funds and that is why we are requesting any good Samaritan to help us solicit for funds for our work with the suffering communities in Northern Uganda
