Plan of the proposed Dormitory.

The two Dormitories will be identical.


A message from the President of Leti Resource Center:

Abundant blessings and gratitude to all our donors and prayer warriors. The impact of Leti Resource Center in Isingiro, Uganda is phenomenal. Because of the good discipline of the students of Leo Primary School and their excellent performance, the number of students is overwhelmingly way above what the structures on the ground can hold! The school has more than five hundred (500) students! Many parents are insisting on bringing more but we turn them back! Thanks to the wonderful administration, staff and parents. At the moment DORMITORIES are urgently needed: One for boys and one for girls. The dormitories will be located opposite to each other behind the Multipurpose Building forming a quadrangle with the completed Kitchen and Dining at the back. Each one of the Dormitories will cost $750,000.00 to completion.

The women and youth have also urgently requested for a Center with spacious halls, stores and bedrooms for resource people who come to visit. The Women and Youth Center is estimated to cost $175,000.00 to completion. Please, come to our aid.

Choicest Blessing to all our friends, our donors and our prayer warriors,


Rev. Fr. Leo Tinkatumire, PhD

President, Leti Resource Center
