NEW GENERATION PRIMARY SCHOOLPlot 21/23
Principal: Rev. Elijah Kirumira
Phone: 256 (0) 712 952 435
This small rural school began in 2004 with 10 students and now has a student body of 183. The "baby" class is comprised of students between 2 and 4 years, and the oldest students are 11 years old.
There are 5 teaching staff, and 50 families are fee paying. Fees are $15 per month, and the fees go to cover the teachers' salaries. Families who cannot pay in cash contribute in kind, and this helps feed and provide for the children while they are at school.
The school's marketing material states "We hope in future to help our community train up a new generation of future leaders in Africa."
Visitors to the school are encouraged and are graciously and warmly welcomed. In addition to its need for chairs, blackboards, books, etc., the school specifically is seeking international school affiliations and for volunteers and teachers to come from abroad.
