Yes. Of course it's completely fine to add buildings. Just do that as a
normal mapping (with your regular account). Just write the comment for
the changeset forgetting about the comment "Uganda Bureau Of Statistics
Education Facilities Import, #hotosm-project-1434", use your own
comment, like "Added buildings to several schools, etc.", and
source=Bing or Mapbox or whatever. And likewise for the Wikidata.

If you did, we would have to erect a monument in your honour somewhere
in Uganda! :D
