Thanks my sister
The school is a small five- year-old that trains individuals to become tomorrow leaders within the Christian faith. There are 320 students currently attending the school, most of whom are district residents.
Ddembe School and St.Pauls Voice Centre are both part of the small trading center of Kanoni, which occupies a stretch of dirt road less than a kilometer in length in a very rural part of a generally rural district.
The project to be undertaken is the construction of a 30,000 liter rainwater harvesting tank. This tank will be built using Interlocking Stabilized Soil Bricks (ISSBs).
DDEMBE Water Tank Project – UgandaThe business of tank construction was started both to provide communities with clean drinking water and also to support the operations of Kanonii Community Health Centre,.
The project also provides some community members with employment opportunities, as seven local builders have been trained in the ways of using this methodology. So far, the project has constructed three water storage tanks, all of 20,000 liter capacities. Two were built at the Kanoni Community Health Centre, and one was built at Dembe School
It is believed that the proposed project will be the catalyst for the business to gain momentum, on its way to becoming self-sufficient. The location of the tank is ideal for marketing, as all of the bricks will be made on site, next to a road filled with passers-by throughout the day.
The tank will be built just on the downslope side of Kanoni Bible College. The now- experienced team of five masons, with two alternates, will be constructing the tank over a period of three weeks. This includes making all of the bricks needed (about 1,200), digging and setting the foundation, laying the bricks and supporting apparatus, roofing, plastering, and finishing processes.
The bulk of the project costs are being paid by donations from local community members, with School funds making up the necessary balance. The community will also be providing assistance throughout the project with labor, such as helping to carry bricks from the roadside down to the building site, or by sifting murram in preparation for making the bricks.
320 students of the college, in addition to twelve faculty members, will be the main beneficiaries.

My name is Patrick Leuben Mukajanga, am 38 years old and a Ugandan human rights defender, am the founder of st. Paul’s voice centre a Ugandan based NGO which aims at spiritual nourishing of the marginalized people in our society especially the womens and children. More so am the founder of Dembe orphanage school which aims at taking care of the homeless, parentless children in kamwengye and the surrounding areas. At Dembe orphanage school we provide; – Support of the needy orphans with education – We do fundraising to help in procuring these young boys and girls scholastic materials – We also do counseling and rehabilitation of these orphans to make them forget the trauma of losing their parents – We train these young children discipline such as to grow into future responsible leaders and citizens of Uganda – We do spiritual nourishment by teaching them about God and the bible – We offer a home for the homeless orphans in kamwengye and the surrounding areas I have been doing this charity work for the 2 years on voluntary basis with the helped of support from well wishers and funders from Netherlands, other parts of Europe and some from USA. My work at the school is to oversee the activities and see how all programs are running, I also focus much attention on searching for funders to help in fundraising to buy scholastic materials and sustain the school such that activities keep moving smoothly. More so as a religious leader I pray a big role in offering spiritual guidance to make sure these lovely children are rained into future responsible citizens of Uganda. We do welcome children in our school those who have lost their parents, those who are from humble and poor backgrounds and their parents can’t afford paying them school fees and buying them scholastic materials so we take over that burden. Generally we welcome the needy children in kamwengye and the nearby place. My plans for the future is to expand Dembe orphanage school into a bigger initiative to make sure all the needy children in western Uganda have a descent upbringing despite losing their parents. My future dream is seeing a bigger Dembe orphanage, seeing all children happy and living a good life.
