  • 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.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will have a first line of study about contemporary life for the rural people. How a country defined as the Pearl of Africa, with so much need, sickness and with little way through its ironical future. Travelers will learn to appreciate the level of human heritages that were far blocked with a poor system of education and lack of self sustaining stream for majority of the population! Travelers will stop working or looking at Africa with the prejudices created over time about the African indigenous persons.
