School helps school

Great: With a huge dona­tion, a Stuttgart school has helped to ensure that HOREMI’s school is up and running on time.

The fact that the HOREMI school was completed in time for the start of the 2024 school year and can now get started is nothing short of a minor miracle. Over 900 pupils from Stuttgart’s Geschwister-Scholl-Gymna­sium made a signif­i­cant contri­bu­tion to this. They financed almost the entire corru­gated iron school roof with their dona­tion of 3,000 euros! The pupils raised all the money them­selves during a simu­la­tion game in which they trans­formed their school into a state complete with parlia­ment, ministries and over 100 compa­nies — from restau­rants to photo studios. And this state obvi­ously not only made good profits and managed its finances care­fully, but also took its social mission seri­ously.

This bene­fited other orga­ni­za­tions in addi­tion to HOREMI, and the project managers voted demo­c­ra­t­i­cally on the selec­tion of dona­tion recip­i­ents. Fortu­nately for HOREMI, one of the teachers found out about the school project and presented it to his “school govern­ment”. They imme­di­ately liked the idea of “school helps school”. Espe­cially as educa­tion is not some­thing that can be taken for granted by chil­dren in Uganda.

The joy at HOREMI and all its “friends” was corre­spond­ingly huge. A thou­sand thanks to the Geschwister-Scholl-Gymna­sium for this great campaign!

“Thumbs up” from the HOREMI kids for the great support from the German school.
