Room & Board:


I have been a student at Peace school for six years. I started in the Primary 1 class. I used to live at home with my parents and come to school only for classes. But my mother died in childbirth and my father was killed in South African while he was working there. So now I live at Peace School. My brother also lives here; he is in the Primary 4 class. And my sister is here; she is in the Kindergarten class. My father was a friend of the Bbaale family who run Peace Nursery and Primary School. During holidays we go to my grandmother’s house.
I am a Catholic and I go to St. Luke’s Catholic Church on Sundays. In our school we have Catholics, Protestants, Born Agains, and Muslims. We all get along very well.
I am a happy person and a hard worker. I don’t mind doing chores. I help with cleaning the school and washing dishes. The food is good at the school and so are the teachers. We eat matoke, fish, rice, potatoes, beans, and cassava.
My favorite subject is Social Studies. I hope to study hard and become a nurse. I hope you will help me with my education so I can achieve my dream.
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.


  • Update on Zaina's Health

    Unfortunately, Zaina has not been well. Please see the note below from Joanita, our contact from the Peace School: Hi Joyce, Catherine and Jennifer, I hope all is well. I am not doing well. One our students, Mulungi Zaina, is in the hospital, very ill. Both her parents died of AIDS-related complications. We have been taking care of her since she was 4 years old. In December she went to visit her aunt in the village. When she come back to the Circle of Peace School from the holidays, my mom discovered that Zaina had stopped taking her medicine. Her aunt claims she didn’t have transportation to take her to the hospital. Anyway, since Zaina came back she has been sick. Currently, she is in the hospital and her condition isn’t good at all. I have been calling and checking on her situation daily. I am praying for her to recover. She is sure a sweet kid. Students at Circle of Peace School are sad and worry for Zaina. Kind Regards, Joanita Please message Zaina back to show your continued s...
