NDF Building Resilient Communities – The MASOOLI PRIMARY SCHOOL INTEGRATED PROJECt (MPSIP)

In 2010 in an effort to build resilient communities, NDF embarked on a project targeting a government-aided primary school owned by the Church of Uganda called Masooli Primary School.

The project aimed at creating a “Model Village”, characterised by access to improved and sustainable health as well as education, clean water and sanitation facilities and robust community involvement and ownership which will lead to sustainable development.

NDF is keen on joining with like-minded partners to replicate the success achieved with the Masooli Primary School Integrated Project.
