Supporting Kakunyu School & its community

The UK charity Friends of Kakunyu School supports Kakunyu School in SW Uganda. This wonderful school, some 7 miles outside Masaka, is for nursery children up to the age of 6, and for children with special educational needs.

Kakunyu School is one of the few schools in Uganda offering education to improve the cognitive skills of children with intellectual disability and other related learning difficulties. It has boarders and day scholars, boys and girls, disabled and abled, and is a joyous, joyful place.Pupils at Kakunyu School

The school, opened in April 2010, stands out gloriously in its bush surroundings. Great things have been achieved by the school management committee, teachers, pupils, and parents over the years: and, with continuing help from the Friends of Kakunyu School and other organisations all over the world, ever greater things will be achieved by the children and community of Kakunyu School.

April 2019 –

Kakunyu School

celebrates 9 years

It’s hard to believe just how far the school has come in the 9 years since the school building – Up – was built. It started with a few children being welcomed to the new building in April 2010: the April 2019 school report shows the school today has 122 students, 13 school staff and 3 support staff.
