Busesa Primary School
Busesa is a government aided mixed primary school founded by the Church of Uganda in 1934. The school is located in south east Uganda, 11 kms east of Iganga near the village of Busesa. The area is green and fertile with many banana plantations.
The school has 894 pupils, equally split male and female, and there are 30 teachers. The school has 14 classrooms and there are 160 boarders. Their standard of education is high and their end of year results excellent.
Completed projects have included:
Both these projects were donated by Nick O’Donohoe, the father of Alexandra, an Africa Venture volunteer, www.aventure.co.uk who taught at the school from Jan – May 2011.
The school has many challenges – it is large with numerous buildings, a lot of which require renovation work. We would like to support this school again in the future.
