Although God planted FNC Academy in Kampala, the simple truth is that we are growing at such a rate that we have to think about the future. We need a home which will provide an environment of sustaining Hope. Currently, we rent two compounds which sit adjacent to the one another. Both compounds are full. And on top of that, we have been warned against building any other structures on the premises. We have scanned the surrounding community for other compounds to rent. The responses we have received go something like this: not available, we want this much money (which is entirely out of line), or the compound needs serious renovation, which we've learned isn't a wise investment. While renting an additional compound is possible, it isn't a permanent or long sustaining solution.
In June 2018, God graciously provided FNC Academy with 13 acres of land. For the record, we are not abandoning where we are, just expanding into what we will become, Lord willing. Simply put, FNC Academy will continue to run our day school here in Kampala, grades Pre-K through 3rd grade, then 4th-12th grade will expand into our new location. This new campus will include boarding as well. The new land God so graciously provided is located 17 miles north of Kampala in a small village area called Busika. It is approximately 13.15 acres and has several structures already built on site. A huge blessing as we intend to occupy them with our 7th and 8th graders beginning in January 2019.
As planned, we began 2019 with the 7th and 8th graders at Busika, but it was time to get to work updating the current buildings and constructing new ones. "Educating Today...Building for Tomorrow" (Thanks to Connie Benson and Becky Mosley) is the title for FNC's latest building campaign. A soft launch has begun. Since 2018, FNC has raised more than 220,000 US Dollars! To date because of your generosity, FNC has been able to accomplish the following...
1. The purchase of 13 plus acres, inclusive of a house and a few out buildings.
2. A well was drilled and existing facilities underwent a facelift, providing the space needed to begin.
3. NEW CONSTRUCTION of PHASE 1 IS UNDERWAY!
