Appeal to bring secondary education to Katumba

UHST has just launched an appeal to bring secondary schooling to the remote Katumba community on Uganda’s Congo border. If we get a good response it will enable children to complete their education from kindergarten to O-level without needing to leave their home community.

To make the expansion affordable, staff rooms, computer room, library, playing field and multi-purpose hall will be shared with the existing primary school. 

The 1st Phase of the work will cost £35,000. It will enable the construction of:

  • Multi-purpose hall. This will enable the school to register as an examination centre, so that children can take national exams within the school, as well as being used for music, dance, drama, debates and school and community activities.
  • Senior 1 classroom and Science Lab with storeroom, water supply and sinks. This will enable children completing their primary schooling in 2023 to start Senior 1 of their secondary schooling in February 2024 and to learn science by doing science.
