Children at the school

Fundraiser for Robert’s School and Orphanage

$50 will educate a child at Robert’s school in Uganda for 1 year.

At this event, we’ll share this story, the work we are doing with the school, and how you can help. We’ll share some of the activities we shared with the students and teachers this year, as well as our plans for the future.

Little Shop of Physics at Robert Serunjogi’s school in Uganda

Members of CSU’s Little Shop of Physics in the College of Natural Sciences joined Robert Serunjogi for a visit to the orphanage Robert founded in his home village in Uganda. The orphanage is now a school, due to construction and development made possible with the help of Laura Schreck, a recent CSU graduate, who worked tirelessly to raise funds and provide support.

For people who have supported the development of the school, know this: The community supports the school 100%. They have donated labor, materials, time, and care. It’s amazing to see how much has been done, and how well things are going.
