INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - An Indianapolis-based group that builds schools in Uganda has received a $500,000 boost from former President Bill Clinton's foundation.
Members of Building Tomorrow received the gift Monday from the Clinton Global Initiative during a ceremony in New York City.
The Indianapolis Star reports that Building Tomorrow was founded in 2006. The group builds primary schools in Uganda for communities that otherwise wouldn't be able to provide formal education to their children.
Building Tomorrow founder and executive director George Srour says the foundation's gift is "a big affirmation" of the group's work in the African nation and its goal to build 60 schools in Uganda by 2016.
