Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

There is a need for quality secondary schools in the northern region of Uganda. Most of the quality schools in Uganda are private and are located in the central and southern regions. Access to secondary education is challenging for poor families since the Ugandan government funds student education only through the equivalent of 6th grade. E3 Africa seeks to provide a quality education of the vulnerable and orphaned children of Uganda through sponsorships.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Child Sponsorship

Sponsoring a child might just be the greatest gift you can give yourself! Sharing a little goes a long way in a country like Uganda. Through E3 Africa, you have the option to fully sponsor or co-sponsor a child on our priority care list. It may seem like a cliche these days, but you can truly change a child's life.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

E3 Africa is committed to reducing poverty and promoting the dignity of the human person through education. One of the ways in which E3 Africa seeks to achieve this end is through the building and operating a quality secondary school in northern Uganda for an underserved population. With God's help, E3 Africa strives to positively impact the nation of Uganda by providing their neediest youth with an education that underscores the life-changing effects of a personal relationship with God, peaceful conflict resolution, free market economics, as well as, individual liberty and equality for all, so that they may grow into industrial, cultural and social leaders that champion the tremendous collective value that is achieved when individuals are empowered to lead and encouraged to prosper.

When completed, the school and campus of St. Thomas Aquinas College would serve 800+ students, most of whom are orphaned or from disadvantaged families. The school just recently finished its first phase of construction. St. Thomas Aquinas College will supplement a traditional curriculum with vocational training, peace & conflict resolution, and moral and spiritual formation. It will nurture the faith in the lives of the students and faculty through prayer and worship at the school chapel.

St. Thomas Aquinas College will also serve the community in the following ways: through culture and arts programs in the multi-purpose hall; through the operation of a farm to provide fruits and vegetables for the students, families and surrounding villages; through teaching valuable business and farming skills; and by access to water from the school well to local villages.

E3 Africa, through our Ugandan non-governmental organization (NGO) – EENU, has title to approximately 27± acres of rich farmland east of the town of Moyo in northern Uganda. The full build-out on the site would be broken down into multiple phases and include:

Dr. Susan Menking Hall, which will serve as a multipurpose space, cafeteria, gym, health clinic and more (Phase 1 completed February 18, 2017)
Classroom blocks (8 total, 100 students each; 2 completed in 2017, 1 completed in 2020)
Dormitories (8 total, 100 students each, 2 completed in 2019, 1 completed in 2020, 1 to be finished 2021)
Teachers' quarters (16 individual buildings; 1 completed in 2019)
Administration building
Farm technology center
Science building and laboratory (completed in 2020)
Computer IT center and library
Sickbay (for students, employees, and local residents)
Chapel (Completed January 2019)
Solar-powered panels for all buildings & security lights (only 1 classroom and the multipurpose have a panel)
Power is provided by the newly installed local infrastructure (solar-powered support is desperately still needed)
Water is provided by an onsite well and water tower (solar-panel powered installed in 2020)

At completion, St. Thomas Aquinas College will have the capacity to educate 800 students per year and employ approximately 40 teachers, 5 administrators and 5 site staff.

We are currently sponsoring over 206 students who are getting a high-quality education in Uganda. We are in the midst of construction for an addition to the girls' dormitory and the science building has just been completed at the St. Thomas Aquinas College in Erepi, Uganda. We are also working with a Phoenix-based company in order to provide clean drinking water for all of our students and staff using their technology to turn sunlight & air into water using solar-powered panels!
