Raising Money for the Isaac Newton Schools

It was only in 1997 that Uganda introduced free Primary Education for children and this eventually led to an increasing demand for good Secondary Education.  A few visionary Ugandan humanists decided to start Secondary humanist schools in the country and the Isaac Newton School (INS) was one of these.  North East Humanists have been supporting the INS since it opened in 2006. Every year since then we have donated to the INS. Earlier this year we gave £2250 from members’ donations and associated Gift Aid. We were also able to contribute £5900 for a particular capital project.  The sum was a bequest to NEH from the estate of the late NEH member Ian Gurney and we donated it all to the Ugandan Humanist Schools Trust (UHST) to contribute to the building of a multi-media and science lab facility for the INS. The lab will be called the Ian Gurney Laboratory. This project is now only £2500 short of its total cost of £42,000.INS boarders include children whose parents pay the fees for a school with an increasingly good reputation for academic success and children who are gifted but are unable to pay the fees. We believe that it costs £300 for every boarder.
