Room & Board:


Until this year I lived with my family in a remote village in the northern part of Uganda. I came to Peace School six months ago. I had never been to school before. After my father died, Mrs. Oliver, who is a teacher at the School, brought me here. She was a friend of my father.
I now live at Peace School with 14 other boys in the Boy’s Dormitory.
During the holidays I go back to my village and stay with my grandfather. I miss my family a lot. It is good to see my mother, brothers and sister. My family speaks Swahili and it has been difficult to learn English and attend a school where classes are taught in English.
My favorite subject is math. Thank you for helping me to get a good education.
Note: Peace Nursery and Primary School is a private school serving orphans and other children unable to afford the costs of attending public schools. As such, it receives no funding from public sources. Located in a suburb of Uganda’s capital city Kampala, the school is in a highly urban setting and must pay for water and sanitation service as well as teacher salaries and facilities. School Supplies include a school uniform, other clothing (underwear and after school clothing), hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, laundry soap, haircuts, etc) medical care, transportation, and entertainment (sports equipment, musical instruments). Educational materials include text books, light for studying at night, pencils, paper, etc. Room and board includes bedding, three meals a day seven days a week, and 24/7 adult supervision.
