Healing Children School

Healing Focus School is a licensed (REG NO PPS/H/104) free school following the government curriculum and subject to Department of Education supervision.

Many of the orphaned pupils were homeless and some now boarded with Guardians in the community.

The school is non-denominational and non-discriminatory, except that intake is restricted to orphans and vulnerable children. The pupils are aged between four and fifteen years and follow the government curriculum. The school is situated at Busiiro village in Luuka District, Uganda, East Africa, a catchment area of subsistence farmers and sugar cane plantations

Today, the School has 3 classroom blocks, one containing three classrooms and the second containing four Classrooms respectively, and offering primary schooling for up to 250 children. 

A third building (wooden) accommodates two Nursery classes between the ages of four and five. A separate building accommodates vocational training programs, offices with a large hall and a safe house for the elder girls at risk.

In Uganda, the school year follows the calendar year. Children aged 4-5 receive 2 years of nursery education. They are in school for 6 hours per day, 4 hours learning and 2 hours sleeping. At this age, the emphasis is put on continuous assessment rather than examination.

Primary education lasts for 7 years. Before graduating to secondary school, the children MUST pass their National Primary Leaving exams (PLE).

The Healing children school is usually among the best performing schools in the region as well as in the country.

Our work is rooted in the principle of non-discrimination. We believe every person should be able to enjoy all the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights without distinctions based on race, color, sex, language, religion, political or other opinions, national or social origin, property, birth or another status. We are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion, and are funded mainly by public donations.

Our main objective is to make the school fully a residential, self-sustaining enterprise: Acquiring more land and buildings to house more Girls at risk and expanding the growing its own food, creating its own businesses, integrated within the community.
