World Malaria Day

Our health education team emphasized the importance of protection from mosquitos, and children learned  the proper use of bed nets and how to keep them in good condition.

New Partners

UWA/FACE is a partnership between the Uganda Wildlife Authority and Dutch organisation, FACE. Together they are reforesting the game corridor between Kibale National Park and Queen Elizabeth National Park and are engaged in carbon sequestration programs. They have asked us to partner with them to help them bring tree planting and conservation skills to our schools.

The Kabarole District Health Authority are formally partnering with us to engage local clinics and Village Health Teams in  helping educate our students about  health. Thank you Health Team Coordinator, Tusiime Patrick for initiating this collaboration.
