Supporting Kakunyu School & its community

Kakunyu School Uganda

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 July 2010, stands out gloriously in its bush surroundings. Great things have been achieved by the school management committee, teachers, pupils, and parents over the last 6 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.

January 2018 – our VERY FIRST PLE Results

All of our children who sat PLE have passed successfully. Solivia, Fred, Ronald and Frank achieved level 2, and Henry achieved level 3. This means that they all qualify for secondary level education. Solivia missed level 1 by just 4 points only. This is a remarkable achievement in the first year of putting students through PLE and Mary believes they will improve in this performance this year.Well done Solivia, Fred, Ronald, Frank and Henry!
