Nyabuhama Primary School was started in 1974 as a community church School
The School islocated along the Kampala-Mbarara high way 12KM off the main road and it’s the only primaryschool in this community of Nyabuhama.
Nyabuhama primary school has a total population of 311 pupils as of August 2017 with 160 girls and 151 boys. Like any other rural primary school ina developing country like Uganda, the school is facing a number of challenges. Nyabuhama Primary school is located in the perimeters of Lake Mburo National Park which isthe smallest game park under conservation in Uganda. As a community based tour company thatis located in the same district of Mbarara ,we selected the school to be the first benefienciary ofour community based project’s support program.
The school has semi- permanent incompleteclassrooms and very old structures which are not only putting the lives of these innocent pupils ata risk but also to their teachers who share the same buildings, The school lacks chairs and seatsas children sit on muddy and dusty floors during class room hours and worse still the school hasNo single Library for the pupils. This leaves the children with no access to a single English orscience text book to enhance their reading skills. Many parents in this community depend ofhunting animals and burning of Charcoal as the only sources of income to use in paying schoolfees for their children. The Great Trekkers Safaris is a community based tour company that fronts tourism which issustainable and benefitial to all people. The company is very focused at transforming the lives ofvulnerable communities through promotion of sustianable and responsible tourism forcommunity development. As a social enterprise, we have dedicated 20% of our company’s profitto supporting the education of the most vulnerable children in this school. Currently the companyis sponsoring 20 pupils and we hope to increase this number once we get more support from ourpartners, friends and well wishers who share the same Vision of educating these children. LikeNelson Mandela said “”Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change theworld.” We beleive that through education we can transform the lives of many people living inthis rural community of Nyabuhama. In May 2016 we launched a Wild life Club at this School to enable this Children get a messageof Conservation. The community of Nyabuhama is known as a community of “hunters” andmany people in this area rely on hunting, poaching, and sell of charcoal. All these activities are adanger to wildlife and nature. Through this program we are teaching the children the importanceof nature and wildlife conservation. We disseminate this message through music, dance anddrama. Our future plan is to construct permanent structures at this school to improve the safety and wellbeing of both pupils and teachers at this school. Together we can implement the above listedprojects for the better learning environment.
