Harry Bucknell   Coming from a high profile job in corporate banking, a drastic career change led Harry to Uganda to teach English. A car crash two days in to the trip meant his time in the country was cut short, but this also instilled in Harry a desire return to Uganda, with more ambitious plans. He turned to development work and after seeing the capacity gaps in the education system first hand, Harry was set on providing support for primary education in hard to reach areas. The idea for The Uganda School Project was born, which Harry went on to set up with close friends Ellie and Sean.

  Sean Richardson   A long-term friend of Harry’s, Sean’s visit to Africa in early 2016 allowed an opportunity to meet with him at the embryonic stage of the Charity’s existence. Two weeks was enough to convince him that this project was where his passion lay, and he returned a month later to see the classroom build through to the end. Since then, Sean has not looked back, and has been working tirelessly on the project, both in-country and in the UK, ever since.
