The REAP Project
Realise East African Potential
Members of The REAP Project are committed to bringing about positive change through the provision of quality education, clean water, health promotion and other community based projects, by collaborating with Ryamugwizi Primary School and the surrounding community in Ibanda, Uganda.
We are working in association with Fields of Life, who have been involved in projects with local communities and churches in a number of countries in East Africa such as Uganda, Kenya, Burundi, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan. If you would like any more information about Fields of Life visit their website: fieldsoflife.org.
We are undertaking this project because we want to show this community that someone cares for them. Most families are poverty stricken and many children are orphans. The majority of the children in this area are underfed and suffer from illness and malnutrition. The teachers at Ryamugwizi have limited training and travel long distances, which impacts on daily school patterns and their ability to provide a high quality education.
