    Description

    Our Junior School,is located just in the heart of the city-Kiboga, it has been established for four years. We are looking around for teaching volunteers to help us with this starting school.. The cost of maintaining the wage for a qualified teacher is a major challenge for starting school projects.

    As you enter Kiboga, you begin with the District Administration Offices and the Kiboga Prisons. Opposite the District Offices is Kiboga Mityan Road and our School is located a walk distance of 900 meters, and on you left is the school Sign post and a road leading you to the school compound. The School is located strategically to reach out to children of many single women and disadvantaged groups who cannot afford main stream municipal education.

    Being near the eye of the Municipality makes volunteering even much easier because there is a great option for a number of facilities, Hotels, bar, church, social fellowship, karaoke, and access to a high way to big cities. So volunteering with our project will never be a strain to anyone wishing to give us a try.

    Project Location- Kiboga District:

    Kiboga District is located along Kampala Hoima High way, and is a home of many hectares of artificial forests. It is along the route toward Marchson Falls National game Park, giving a great chance for any volunteers heading to see wild game tracking .It is covered by good vegetation but with few tarmac roads.

    Majority of in land roads are mar rum so a bit dusty during the dry season. Kiboga is a place for business especially in agriculture and livestock bringing an inflow of visitors all over the year. It is served with a regional referral Hospital, with good facility and with a 24 hr ambulance.

    The District hospital also gets a number of international Volunteers through the year, so an opportunity to catch up with the place with old and new international volunteers. The District has a multicultural environment and also rich in religious heritages. For volunteering wanting to spend their Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays in religious refreshments, they will find a good experience. Good Police system and in case of security concerns, the district patrols are 24 hours active. Kiboga has very clear telephone network and internet connection.
