EMI is partnering with Reach One Touch One Ministries (ROTOM) for the third time to provide a master plan and conceptual Phase 1 building design for their Primary and Secondary School located near the village of Magogo, Uganda.

Project Scope

Reach One Touch One Ministries (ROTOM) is a non-denominational Christian organization reaching out to older persons and the children in their care. It was started in Uganda in 2003 and has grown to become one of the most effective mission organizations supporting older persons in Uganda and Ethiopia.

EMI partnered with ROTOM on two previous occasions: once in 2007 to provide a master plan and Phase 1 building design for their seniors' health centre in Mukono, and again in 2016 to follow up with Phase 2 design.

Now, ROTOM is seeking to further support older persons by addressing the educational  needs of their grandchildren. Many of these children's parents have passed away, leaving their grandparents with the challenge of providing for them. To help, ROTOM is planning to construct a Primary and Secondary School campus that includes classrooms, dorms, a dining hall, a library, a chapel, administration, and space for extracurricular activities on their land near Magogo village.

This team will focus on creating an effective master plan for the campus, as well as providing conceptual building design for Phase 1 buildings (to be identified during initial programming). We will also provide recommendations and basic design for campus infrastructure, including storm water, potable water, wastewater, and power supply.

Please consider joining our team and use your skills to serve this great ministry and, by extension, the seniors and their grandchildren in Uganda!
