Godfrey's story

Godfrey is a 35-year-old married man with three children; he also looks after two orphans. He is teacher by profession and it is from teaching that he earns a living. In 2010, Godfrey realized that there was a need for a nursery school in his village. He took it upon himself to start up a nursery school so as to help poor parents have their children attend school at a low cost near their homes. Young pupils were traveling long distances in search for schools and his initiative has helped many in the village.

Godfrey now wants a loan of 1,200,000 Ugandan Shillings to buy construction materials; especially, cement and sand to plaster the building so as to improve the environment his pupils are studying in. His dream is to develop the school and have classes up to primary seven, providing quality primary education at a low cost for the children in his village. He faces various challenges including late payment and at times non-payment of school fees by parents, which makes the operations very difficult. He ends up using his own money to keep the school running and pay the teachers.
