Lodonga Muslim Coverts Centre is located in Yumbe District, 564KM North of the Capital (Kampala). the Centre has 85 pupils, 50 boys and 35 girls. Due to lack of classrooms, studying is done under a mango tree. The Mosque is used as dormitory for boys while girls sleep in a hut near-by rented at 10,000/= per month. The Centre is in need of 2 classroom blocks. One block to be used as a classroom while another for the dormitory. Land for growing food is also needed because without a daily income, it has become so expensive to feed the pupils and even the teachers.
