St Joan of Arc School’s mission is to create opportunities for prosperity through self-sufficiency. “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach him to fish, and he eats for a lifetime.”
Before SJA Uganda, the village it serves had only a one-room school with a dirt floor, and education was a limited dead end. Our support began with mosquito nets and wells, and grew to a thriving school campus serving hundreds of boys and girls in the area. More current goals are campus completion and self-sustaining operations.
