Manjeri School Project (RAWCS)

The Manjeri School Project (RAWCS) was a youth run international development organisation that sought to empower rural Ugandan communities through education and sustainable development practices. The team developed a 300 student primary school in the Buikwe district of Uganda. It provided access to high quality education to some of the poorest children in the area with 20% of the children being orphans while simultaneously developing income generating businesses in the community to subsidise the school. The team established a 2500 bird chicken farm enterprise, a honey bee cooperative, a matatu taxi business and is presently implementing a 15 acre mixed farm. Sustainable development and local ownership is at the core of the organisation’s strategy.
