Educate is a non-government organisation which was introduced to Uganda under the theme of “connecting to create opportunities”.

It’s major aims and objectives to equip the young mainly students in school (secondary) with practical skills which can easily be practiced using the locally available resources in their communities.

The start up costs for this business is relatively low and affordable.

In Uganda St. Mary’s SS, Namaliga is one of the lucky schools that have embraced the program under the guidance of the Educate Mentor and the patron is Mr. Odeng Ronald Okello who is an Entrepreneurship teacher.

Below are the skills which students of St. Mary’s SS, Namaliga have benefited from the program;
1. Liquid soap.
2. Books.
3. Cakes.
4. Charcoal.
5. Shoe.
6. Candles and many others.

We are so grateful still for the program as it has touched and changed many lives of our students.

Long live St. Mary’s SS Namaliga, long live our dear Director Rev. Fr. Irunga Desire and all the Salesians of Don Bosco, long live Educate Club.
