School as an opportunity
Communicating responsibility through education
Responsibility for the future
Children learn that they can shape the future
The Newday School Center is an ambitious school project that aims to provide children with good schooling and responsibility for the future.
Children should develop a strong sense of self and a strong sense of responsibility that goes beyond reading and writing.
This principle is very important to Stream of Life. Only with this social competence can children take the responsibility to actively shape their future
and the future of their community.
An ambitious school project
Together with Joshua Magezi, we launched the project to gradually build a school center with kindergarten, primary and secondary school. In this way we want to give the young people a good and above all sustainable education.
Chance for a new generation
Good education is more than reading, writing and learning the English language. We also want to strengthen the social competence of children in order to enable them to lead a self-determined and self-reliant life. Building on the already existing preschool, we have this ambitious goal in mind when developing our school center.
Newday kindergarten, an ideal starting point
With the Newday Kindergarten, Joshua has built a successful school that enjoys a good reputation in the area. Even families living further away send their children here on the Newday Shuttle Bus. The joy of learning and the awareness of the families about how important education is for the future of the children, shape the school life. We want to create a learning environment for the children in which they feel comfortable and secure. That’s why we’ve set high standards for equipment and hygiene in the Newday Kindergarten.
Success factor: competent local partners
Joshua Magezi graduated from the Uganda Management Institute (UMI) with a Diploma in Human Resource Management. He has gained his professional experience above all in the construction and operation of schools. His structured way of working and his entrepreneurial thinking make him an ideal partner of Stream of Life. His wife Lillian holds a Finance Degree from the renowned Makerere University (MAK) and handles all financial matters in Newday. In addition, she actively participates in the school organization.
“The children are the chance to change the future of our home in a sustainable way. Our children have to learn that it is they who hold this change in their hands.”

Step by step more education
The first step has already been taken: we have acquired suitable land, which is paid off in monthly installments. Next, we plan to start building schools and sanitation, kitchens and boarding, depending on funding. Thereafter, the spatial infrastructure should grow parallel to the school’s resources.
In the future, the Newday kindergarten will also be settled here. The proceeds from the sale of the old site will later flow into the new school and will be used, among other things, to increase the number of teaching staff. Well-trained elementary school teachers, who are trained according to the train-the-trainer principle, are in demand here.
Stage plan for investments
The existing kindergarten offers, for the first time, an elementary school class. This class will give the children a good start into their education and strengthen their ties to Newday. In offering this class we can ensure a good transition to the new location.
Through the gradual expansion of the school, Stream of Life can plan the necessary investments in time, costs for the property, the construction of the school building (including the sanitary infrastructure as well as the kitchen and playground) which are incurred right at the beginning, as well as for the necessary consultations of lawyers.
We have already succeeded in buying a suitable plot of land for the project and to pay half of the property price.
As a next step, the buildings for the relocation of the existing kindergarten will be built and furnished. The costs amount to about 30,000 euros.
For this purpose, we are still looking for generous donors who, with their financial support, are laying the foundation for a new independent generation.
Let’s make the dream of a better future for these children and their families come true.
