It takes just a few steps to create your page supporting The Uphill Trust (Scotland).
The Uphill Trust supports grass roots education in rural western Uganda: Uphill Junior School, a privately-owned primary school with kindergarten, was founded by a Ugandan teacher in February 2011 and provides educational opportunities for girls, orphans and children from poor rural families.
We are helping the school to build well equipped school buildings, maintain a motivated and well-qualified teaching staff, provide clean water and good sanitation, and support the education of girls and orphans.
When funding is available we also support projects that benefit the wider community, such as provision of mosquito nets, solar lanterns and reading glasses for the community elders.
The Uphill Trust is a zero-overheads charity - 100% of the money you donate is used to support Uphill Junior School.
Education is power!
Good teachers inspire children to fulfil their potential and achieve important national qualifications.
The Uphill teachers are a dedicated team who work from 8am to 5pm on weekdays, and during the evening and weekends when children need extra tuition. To further their skills, many of them take additional courses in the school holidays.
Qualified teachers at Uphill Junior School are are currently paid around £75 per month. We pay the salaries for 15 members of staff - it's our biggest monthly commitment!
A regular monthly donation, of whatever you can afford, will make a huge difference to our ability to provide the teaching staff that the children need! If everyone helps a little, it soon adds up!

The Uphill teachers are a family - they work together, live in the community and socialise together and, help look after each other's offspring when the need arises!
