Bududa Learning Center could not exist without your contributions. Although students at Bududa Vocational Academy pay course fees if they are able, the fees represent a small percentage of the overall operating budget. The Center receives no government funding. We are growing our capacity for earned revenue by encouraging our students to apply their vocational skills to produce marketable goods. Students can also earn money for course fees by working on brick making and carpentry for the building of the new campus.
It is donations from individuals, families, foundations and small businesses that provide 90 percent of our operating funding. In Canada we have formed our own charitable foundation, Bududa Canada Foundation, which issues tax receipts to Canadian donors. Through our partnership with Friends Peace Teams (USA), we can provide charitable receipts for tax purposes in the United States.
To make a Canadian donation, please make your check payable to Bududa Canada Foundation. You will receive an official receipt for income tax conforming to the requirements of the Canada Revenue Agency, Charitable Number 82535 8286 RR0001. Please send your check to:
