About this Campaign

Government funded schools in Uganda are few and far between, and their frequently-absent teachers provide poor education. LUV4ALL: Uganda, led by Pastor Musisi Mike, is therefore raising the money to build an independent vegan primary school and provide full-time, good quality, compassionate education to the children of Kafuuda village, Kassanda District. Atlas vegan community school, which is attended by 200 children, has been operating since 2018 in rented premises but the landowner evicted us this year so the only way we can keep the school open is to build our own.

Why vegan? We believe, as we witness world crises which are completely preventable, we have to teach our children a better way forward. The human population in Uganda suffers many infections from eating and producing animal products. Tape worms are common in children; and zoonotic pathogens like brucellosis frequently infect people. Then there's bird flu every year, and sleeping sickness caused by the insects which farmed animals attract. And now covid!

Farmed animals in Uganda are completely unprotected. Grazing on whatever they can find in the forests, they are often injured by wild animals and bitten by snakes. Many are so neglected they are almost starved. The cruelty used when taking these animals to slaughter is abhorrent. Cows tied to trucks by their tails on their 67km journey to the abattoir; pigs killed with axes or stabbed through their ears with spears; chickens thrown alive into boiling water to make them easier to pluck. These barbaric and soul-destroying jobs are done by people who have never been to school.

LUV4ALL:Uganda intends to break this cycle of extreme cruelty, abuse and disease, and teach a new generation of Ugandan children that there is a better way. Our school teaches children about plant-based diets because they are the only healthy option. Crops are plentiful and cheap since many African families are growers, and they have no health complications. As well as literacy and numeracy, we will teach the children how to grow their own fruits and vegetables and make healthy meals.

Thank you so much to all who have already donated. Please continue to share this campaign and help us get the support we need.

From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your kind donations. God bless you.

Use of Funds

Thanks to you we have now bought the land and built a couple of temporary classrooms and latrines, but we still have a long way to go. We need money for the construction of teachers' quarters and a school office, as well as school supplies such as exercise books, pencils and textbooks.

We hope that you will donate whatever you can afford to help us provide a better future for our children, our human community, and the beautiful animals with whom we share this world. Thank you for sharing.

The children in the video are being asked what is their favourite fruit and they are replying 'Jackfruit'.]
