Improvements to School in Uganda

Hadassah Primary School, supported by Kulanu, is a vibrant Jewish school in Mbale, Uganda serving over 400 Jewish, Muslim, and Christian students. The school has been working on improving its infrastructure with necessary improvements including installing 6 lightning arresters on the top of the school buildings to ensure the students are safe during storms. This was required by the Ugandan authorities after children died from a lightning fire at another school.

The water pump was also upgraded to a solar powered pump since the previous broken pump was not repairable. Fortunately, this new addition will allow the school to save on future electricity costs while giving the school safe drinking water.

Kulanu was able to respond quickly to both of these necessary improvements with reserve funds which we save for emergencies.
