EMI is excited to be working again with 4Africa - a ministry doing work to empower entrepreneurial, servant-minded leaders that are guided by biblical principles to be equipped to handle the complex challenges in communities in Africa.

We shall be working to develop a campus masterplan for their new Secondary School in Northern Uganda including designing and updating the concept designs for a number of needed school buildings.

4Africa has constructed and run a similar school regionally and are excited by the results of their LEAD model (Leadership | Entrepreneurship | Academics | Discipleship) reporting expansion into a "comprehensive 10-year program [that] is recognized as one of the top A-Level education programs in East Africa."

We are looking forward to helping expand their reach and capabilities as they support an empower a new generation of young men and women who will help bring about gospel centred redemption across the continent.

Project Scope

EMI will work with 4Africa's team to develop a masterplan and concept designs for their newly purchased land in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Their hope is that this school shall be adapted and informed by their experiences with a previous school designed with EMI support implementing new priorities and lessons learned from using their previous spaces.

The EMI team will be working to develop a new masterplan for LEAD 4Africa with similar themes to their first campus design and developing ideas coming from their experiences using their facilities.
