There is great opportunity for impact in Uganda and Raise the Roof Academy is uniquely positioned to act. Our cornerstone health program in Bwasandeku is emerging as a comprehensive health clinic. Our school nurse oversees the urgent care of our students, schedules doctor visits, organizes health workshops and annual community-wide health clinics, makes check-ups to house-bound students, and leads a team of Village Health Workers.

The services we provide include primary care, dental care, maternal and child health, mental health, the prevention and treatment of Malaria, HIV/AIDS, Typhoid, Malnutrition, Respiratory Infection, Tuberculosis, and other infectious and non-communicable diseases. 

Your support will bring healing! Join us in making more health milestones possible for our students and their caregivers!
