New stretch target

if we reach our target we will throw all the extra money towards buying equipment and supplies for the school.

Campaign mission

Our mission is to help this community school, providing them with basic shelter so classes can run undisturbed from the tropical seasons and provide its pupils with the tools to progress in their ciricullums (books, calculators ect) 

Adullam is not only a solution to its towns needs for a educational centre but it also plays an important role to their community.

Why Adullam?

Adullam is a community funded and built primary school that provides education to children in their local district of Luwero (western Uganda, 35km outside Kampala). Founded by William Nsereko it was built to provide a school for the more disadvantaged pupils, those unable to attend due to a pre-teens daily commute being too far, or fees being too expensive. Only 4 years old Adullam has no government funding and so its future is in the hands of the people! Having a indoor classroom that is properly sheltered from the weather is a basic element for a school to function undisturbed, this sets out for them to achieve that.

Your donation 

£1 is on average 4,830 Ugandan shillings  

'A 2lt bottle of water is around 500 shillings and in the local markets 4-5 days worth of fruit and veg would cost £1'

If we reach our target any extra money will be further invested into the school, buying books and equipment (sports, gardening, games) alongside various stationary supplies (rulers, compasses, calculators ect)

From speaking with Mr Nsereko we have created a complete breakdown for you to see exactly where your moneys going.

A 21*21ft will cost between 9-10 million shillings

£2000 = 9,667,368 

Breakdown total = 9,610,000 leaves us 57,368 (about £11) for a contingency fund

Adullams Future

After school activities already take place, landscaping and planting food and shrubbery all in tune with the future layout plans. As a community backed project some of the pupils parents teach the classes and cook, being entirely run of donations.


With plans to one day become an established school in the district of Luwero, William Nsereko hopes to continue growing adullam, teaching more subjects and eventually more pupils. 


In exchange for your contributions we have various rewards available, from letters by school to prints and zines alongside with an opportunity to be ingrained in the spirit of the school having trees planted in your name.

"This short series captures the essence of the adullum showing the pupils attitude and spirit towards working on the land and how the local community lay groundwork that will become the school foundation to build on"
