The UK charity Friends of Kakunyu School has been set up to support Kakunyu School in SW Uganda. This marvellous school, some 7 miles (or a hairy 20 minute boda-boda ride) 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.

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 3 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.
