New Buildings in Apac, Uganda

Kulanu is contributing to the building of a new school and a community center being built by community members in the rural Abayudaya Jewish community in Apac, Uganda. The project, led by the P’nai Or of Portland Tikkun Olam Abadayuya Fund, is focused on education, agriculture, and microcredit, and savings. The school, named Ben David School, consists of three log classrooms (pictured above) that will allow the students to learn closer to home. There is also a thatched roof building being used as a synagogue and classroom. The community center is a small brick building that will include a savings and loan office, a guest room, and living quarters.
