Our own schools

In many areas of Uganda there is inadequate access to education and there are not enough schools. For this reason A Chance for Children operates ten of its own schools and seven nursery schools, working together with the local community to improve, consolidate and monitor educational opportunities. We are engaged in primary schools, vocational training and education for children with special needs.

 

Education is key to development

In Uganda many children live in villages where there is no school and therefore no access to education. A Chance for Children, seeing education as the key to economic development, runs ten schools of its own and supports other existing educational establishments. The organisation's schools include six primary schools (Bongole, Nateete, Butimba, Kakindu, Kalangaalo and Lubajja), two vocational secondary schools (Bongole and Nateete), seven kindergartens (Lukingiridde, Nateete, Bongole, Kakindu, Kalangaalo, Butimba and Lubajja), a school for deaf children (Ttanda) and a school for disabled children (Christoph Bettermann School in Zigoti).

 

Locations

Our schools are mainly built in the poorest areas of Uganda, in the countryside where almost nobody has had educational opportunity until now.
Nateete is one of these villages. Together with the local population we have run a primary school since 2010 and, since 2015, a secondary school and also a nursery school. We started the project with the local community because they already had a tiny, one-classroom school and an untrained teacher called Fred. With our support these two schools have been built/extended and Fred has trained as a teacher and still teaches in Nateete. Since 2018 we also run a school for all for children with sepcial needs in the same location.
