Who we are

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

SCHOOL MISSION

Provide firm educational foundation for a bright future through quality, affordable and accessible education

to the society.

BACKGROUND

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 $.

OUR OBJECTIVES

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

TEACHING STAFF OF VICTORY NURSERY A

ND PRIMARY SCHOOL-BUHOMA

We have  teaching staff of 12 individuals. The small number does the teaching and each member is

assigned a different duty in kind, just to help the school move on. Thanks to the kind hearts!

FUTURE PLANS

ports facilities)
Recruit reasonable number of  staff and more professional teaching  staff .

To expand the land of  the  school premises
Dormitories are to be constructed to provide a boarding section for long distant pupils .
Buy school trucks for child transportation, and other school duties.

To afford printing materials so that every  pupil  do printed exams every week

Construct staff quarters with better environment .

To have electricity at  school or solar energy to provide light at night.

To have piped water  in school premises.

PROBLEMS IN THE SCHOOL

Teachers’ salaries are very low compared to the services rendered to the school.
High level of school dropout due to the fact that pupils from poor families fail to raise the little fee required

from them.Lack of permanent structures, this is a very serious problem since it rains anytime in Bwindi
There is no staff houses, therefore renting for each teacher is so expensive compared to the income of the

school Education at Victory Nursery and Primary School is in dilemma due to the fact that we do have enough

teaching materials and furniture neither in classrooms nor in office.

SCHOOL’S BENEFITS TO THE COMMUNITY

Community members have been employed at the school as teaching staff, chefs,  and cleaners,others working

income earners.
The school gives breakfast and lunch to both teachers and pupils everyday.

community members Education service has been brought nearer, more especially to school going children
