Kabubbu Community Primary School & Kabubbu High School, Uganda
Burgess Hill Girls School has a strong partnership with The Quicken Trust, working with them for many years supporting their projects in Kabubbu. It was the perfect partnership for us to support with a Contain-A-School shipment.
After weeks collecting donations and many hours of careful packing the Contain-A-School shipment was on its way. It was sheer joy when pupils and staff welcomed the container's arrival in Kabubbu.
"Before we had no tables and chairs, the children sat on the bare floor. Now the children sit at tables with their books and pencils. Before teachers had nowhere to organise and store their work, now we have cupboards, desks and filing cabinets – we can organize our teaching and the children learn more. The Contain-A-School has given us so many things for our school, more than we could ever have expected. We cannot thank you enough for helping our children."

The Quicken Trust has been working with the villagers of Kabubbu since 2000. Back then Kabubbu had no clean water, no electricity, and no access to education or health care; living in poverty they called themselves the 'forgotten people'. Now there is a High School, a Community Primary School and a Nursery School and 89% of the village children complete their education compared to 14% nationally in Uganda.
