Motto: Education for Development

Mission: To produce competitive citizens and to promote a sustainable and creative world

MD Standard School currently sits on a 1/4 acre (~10,000 sq. ft.) plot of rented land with 8 small classrooms and a modest area for outdoor activities. With a steady influx of local children eager to learn and seeking the opportunity for education, the school has grown tenfold in under 3 years. To help meet the needs of our student population, we currently employ 15 staff members including a director, headmaster, 10 teachers, seamstress, water fetcher, and cook. Not far from the school is a 2-acre plot of rented land on which we grow maize (corn) crops twice a year to feed the students. This versatile and cost effective crop comprises a large portion of the diet for the people of the Iganga region - $400 provides school lunches for 150 students for at least 6 months. To supplement these crops, The Mawanda Project purchases beans and additional maize during the off season and/or times of bad harvest.
