Capstone Projects is a Christian Charity based in the Dundee, Scotland, which has a long standing relationship with Lugazi Pentecostal Church Ministries, Uganda. Through acting as a fundingCapstone map partner and providing professional assistance Capstone has been involved in many projects in Uganda over the years. It is hoped that the projects will mutually support one another to further benefit the community of Lugazi.

Many people in the UK are involved with fundraising for these projects and many individuals have visited the projects over the past 25 years.

Capstone Projects has a strong belief that the ownership and direction of the projects which it supports should be with the staff working within each project.

Capstone Childrens centreCapstone Children’s Centre
This was our first project. It started in 2003 as a direct response to help children who were living on the streets. Initially the children were taken into someone’s home where they would be looked after. However as the number of children in need grew, a more permanent solution was required and as soon as funding was available a property was purchased and staff were employed to ensure the best possible care would be provided.
February 2017 Update – the Capstone Children’s Centre was our first project in Lugazi. It has looked after and rehabilitated many children over the years. This fantastic work will continue but as of this month, it will be done in a different way.
The Government and regional authorities are keen to reduce the number of Centres like ours and instead have the children looked after in family homes. We have had to respond to this request and going forward our Children’s Project will be delivered in a different way.
Over the past few months Damallie and her team have worked hard to find the extended families and some foster homes for the 44 children in the Centre. After much effort all of the children have been found homes. Our support to the children will continue with Damallie and one other social worker supporting these families as well as the children.

Coffee Growing ProjectCapstone Al & Deb 3
The Rozelle Trust is delighted to be working with Capstone Projects to fund an exciting new project in Uganda. In early 2011, one of its Trustees Capstone Al & Deb visited Capstone’s existing projects in Lugazi, where there was the opportunity to see the medical and educational work that is being carried out.  Sadly this project has not reached fruition as the land is not suitable for a sustainable coffee plantation.

This is our latest project. The building work for the new school, a nursery school at this stage, was completed at the end of 2014 but we had to wait until the start of the new academic year before teaching could begin.  Classrooms for Primary 1 and 2 are completed and building work for the Primary 3 and 4 classrooms is under way and will be ready for the start of the new school year in February 2019. 123 children are now enrolled at the school.
