Old Kampala Primary School was founded in 1932 as an Indian community-based school. In 1972 local parents saved the school from closure following expulsion of Indian nationals from Uganda by President Idi Amin.
The school now has 532 students, 14 teachers, and additional staff. 2006 government grants totaled 2,353,337 shillings ($1,345). Although the school charges for attendance, it needs additional funds in order to make necessary structural improvements, add to its library, and improve furnishings.
Mission: making quality education accessible to children in developing nations so they can improve their standards of living and work towards a brighter future.
Too many areas of the world lack educational opportunities and resources. Our goal is to help as many children as possible achieve a meaningful education. We provide the essential support, from learning materials and curricula to televisions and teachers’ guides, that is so critical to these schools.
We are also committed to helping teachers in the developing world by introducing effective teaching methods and providing tools for quality instruction and assessment. Through our Sister School Program, we connect teachers and students around the world, encouraging cultural awareness throughout the global community.
