Salvation Secondary School was founded in 2013 and is located in Hoima, Uganda.
It is the only secondary school KFNL partners with and is still meeting in a rented building. A number of students from New Life Primary, our first school partner, attend this school so it is a natural fit for us.
Current 2023 enrollment has really jumped to 470 students in grades from senior 1 to senior 6 with 243 being girls. Many of the students are poor/orphaned, and under-resourced and there are a large number of refugees from surrounding countries. As we began our partnership with them, they had no soap for the school or sanitary supplies for girls. This is disruptive as the girls miss school and dangerous as they become vulnerable when they are not in school.
Salvation SS has 28 teachers and the headteacher, Kyamuhangire Isaac. The Mission of the school is “to provide education that equips all learners with desirable knowledge, skills, behaviors, attitudes, interests, and values to cope with dynamic, social, economic, demands of society.” That is a high goal, and KFNL hopes to take away some of the challenges they face to help them reach their mission.
