Mzungu Memoirs

Lufuka-Suubi Community School

I just finished my first project for a local ministry here in Kampala and thought all of you might like to see it.  This is a site master plan that will be used as a fund raising tool for the ministry.

Sayuni Education Uganda is a local ministry that has been started by Peace Nabikolo, a Ugandan woman who initially heard her calling to education and teaching when she was graduating from secondary school.  It was at a Youth With a Mission (YWAM) School of Discipleship that she first heard that calling; however, she chose to ignore that call for about ten years.

Fast forward ten years and Peace became involved in ministry with the Kampala Pentecostal Church.  At a leader’s retreat for the church, Peace realized the role of education in discipling a nation and why God had called her to be a teacher.  She returned to YWAM for biblical teacher training and later enrolled at African Bible University and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Community Leadership with Education and she is now pursuing a Master’s Degree in Education.

Peace’s vision is to transform an entire generation of Ugandans through Biblically-based education.  Her mission is to develop an education model based on Biblical truths, provide educational outreach programs for the surrounding community and develop a church for the community.

Despite a small urban 1/3 acre site, she has a lot of vision for the site, including 16 classrooms for a preschool, primary and secondary school, multipurpose dining/assembly space, administration offices, a conference room, kitchen and grass courtyard assembly space.  This project was a challenge to fulfill the program, provide circulation/ separation, not use soft stories (open columns on ground floor) and keep buildings to only two total stories.

The SITE PHASING PLAN illustrates the order of potential construction phases, the building footprints and paving areas vs. vegetation areas.  The SITE MASTER PLAN illustrates an overhead view with the roof layouts, trees and shadows that help your eye see everything in 3-D.

“All this,” David said, “I have in writing from the hand of God upon me, and he gave me understanding in all the details of the plan.” 1 Chronicles 28:19
