MISSION: To reflect Christ's love in the world, we work in partnership with Ugandans to develop sustainable learning communities that model effective education, conservation, health care, and economic development.
OUR VALUES: Excellence in Education, Nutrition, Health, Care for the Whole Child, Conservation and Sustainable Development
EXCELLENCE IN EDUCATION: Mustard Seed teachers are highly qualified and devoted to bringing the best performance from their students. Mustard Seed students have achieved among the highest national exam scores in the entire Kalungu District!
NUTRITION: Children receive a nutritious breakfast and lunch each school day, so that they can focus on their studies.
HEALTH: Students receive routine health care from school nurses. For more serious illnesses, children are taken to a local health clinic to be evaluated and treated by a doctor. All students receive education in caring for their health.
CARE FOR THE WHOLE CHILD: Many children have experienced trauma, such as losing one or both parents, serious illness, neglect or abuse. They are encouraged to ask for help from the social worker, a teacher, or an administrator. All children are respected and loved.
CONSERVATION AND SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: Real Partners Uganda is dedicated to conservation, not just in natural areas, but in the places where people already live. The land, water, natural cycles of wastes and nutrients need to be conserved or restored--in most cases to improve the lives of the people. To make progress against poverty, it is vital that we work to end non-sustainable use of natural resources. Here school cooks proudly demonstrate stoves that function effectively with a small amount of wood and produce a fraction of the smoke of traditional cooking methods.
