To ensure that underprivileged children have better access to a quality education, regardless of ethnicity, socioeconomic background or circumstances.
Our organization began as a big dream back in 2007, and our dreams were realized in January 2009 when we officially opened our school's doors for the first time. We started with 65 students, and we have continued to grow since then, adding more students, teachers, and staff with each passing year.
As of February 2015, we have 6 classrooms standing on over 5 acres of land, with 215 children ranging from 1st-6th grade. Our campus is in the middle of the African bush, a short drive from a town called Gulu in Northern Uganda. We provide housing for our teachers and staff, and we also have a free-standing kitchen and playground. Along with our country director, teachers, and security, we are pleased to have a nurse on hand full-time to deal with the children’s day-to-day physical needs. We also offer the children a source of fresh, clean water, a vital key to avoiding many of the health problems inherent to the area, by having our own on-site well. Along with this, we feed our students and staff twice a day - for many of the kids, sadly, these are the only times they’ll eat all day.
The students learn mathematics, reading and writing in both English and their local language, history, social studies, horticulture, physical education, religion, and dance.
