We are located in Buhoma, Bwindi in western Uganda. We are 37 minutes’ walk or 7 minutes’ drive from
the home of a half of the world Majestic and yet endangered Mountain Gorillas, Bwindi Impenetrable National Park.
Bwindi Impenetrable National Park initially existed as Kabatoro
and Kayonza crown forest reserves in 1932.
The two were amalgamated to form a central crown forest which was later gazetted as an animal
Sanctuary in 1961 to protect the endangered mountain Gorillas.
It was then upgraded a national park on 13th -1991.The park’s exceptionally high and
unique biological diversity of the National and International significance accounts for its
conservation status also as a world heritage site and a world’s 1st class tourism destination
Provide firm educational foundation for a bright future through quality, affordable and accessible education
to the society.
Victory Nursery and Primary School was started by the kind Bahati Victor On 2nd February, 2006. Leaving in
the tropical rain forest of Africa can mean having a hard life if kind hearts never show up. Access to
education was difficult to afford and to reach! Victor looks at this and decides to come up with
a literacy center affordable and accessible to the poor with in the Buhoma Community.
The School started with two classes; Nursery one and two, with thirty eight pupil’s however, the number
has risen to two hundred seventy five pupils. 20 pupils are double orphans, 15 are single orphans, 80 are
needy and 160 are from the families whose daily income is below the poverty line that is less than
a half US $.
Every child will acquire the skills of writing and reading
Pupils will communicate in English as a medium of instruction
Develop a good teacher-pupils relationship
Develop talents in cultural subjects such as physical education (PE), Music, Art and Crafts
Acquire good moral, spiritual upbringing skills of judging, evaluation of memory and appreciation of God’s creation
