Sponsorship of each student at Rock of Ages School: Child sponsorships ensure that each student has everything they need to succeed throughout their education. Sponsorships cover the overhead costs of Rock of Ages School (ROA), a food program including a daily snack and lunch for all students, and medical attention as needed.

Build a new school facility for Rock of Ages School: In 2016 Hands4Uganda  purchased three acres of land and hired a Ugandan architect to draw plans for a new ROA facility. The plans were officially approved in 2017. As of today the first required structures, the restrooms, have been completed!  H4U is now focused on raising the necessary funds to construct the primary school facility.

Rock of Ages School

Rock of Ages School (ROA) is a nondenominational Christian school located in the small village of Mbiko, Uganda. Hands4Uganda (H4U) hopes that each student will learn of God's love and be given the necessary tools to grow into educated, responsible adults. About 320 children, ranging from PK-3 through Primary 7, currently attend ROA. The average monthly income in Mbiko, for those who are fortunate enough to have a job, is around 3 USD per month. Education is not free in Uganda. While there are public schools there are many fees associated with attendance. When a small income means choosing between food and an education, many families simply cannot afford to send their children to school. H4U strives to ensure that the choice between a meal and an education no longer needs to be made, as all children deserve an education.
