Pursuit of Excellence is involved in the Special Projects listed below. Your general support will provide support to POE overall and our scholarship program, not our special projects; if you would like to restrict your gift to any of our special projects, please specify that in your donation or contact carol@poescholarships.org.

Uganda Schools Project

POE supports primary and secondary schools in Uganda to improve student outcomes by providing basic aid, such as nutrition, athletics, and academic support. Your donation to the Uganda Schools Project will be used to support schools like the Mukono Primary School. At Mukono Primary School in the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, POE awarded grants to build an onsite kitchen and serve the students lunch.  Mukono was closed for 22 months during Covid and when it reopened in January 2022 their student population had grown from 571 to 828.  POE has also funded soccer and volleyball uniforms, nets for their goals, and bought more desks to support their increased enrollment.  In June of 2022 POE awarded a new grant to Mukono Primary School for breakfast, lunch, and scholastic materials for all the children as well as funds to hire new teachers and fund teacher training and a study tour.  POE’s Board of Directors will select Ugandan schools to receive grants in support of the Uganda Schools Project. Your donation to the Uganda Schools Project will support POE’s work to ensure education of all students and support some students in continuing their education through higher degrees.
