Profile

My brother and I came to Peace School when my father died two years ago. My mother could not afford to take care of us so she turned us over to the care of Peace School.
 
Niukasa Musa, my 10-year old brother, is in the Primary 3 class. He lives in the Boy’s Dormitory and I live in the Girl’s Dormitory.
 
My best friend is named Vivian. She is a Muslim like me. On Fridays we go to the Mosque for prayers. Altogether there are three Muslim girls in our dormitory.
 
My favorite subject is science. I would like to be a doctor and help sick people get well. I hope you can help me achieve my dream of being a doctor.
 
Note: Peace Nursery and Primary School is a private school serving orphans and other children unable to afford the costs of attending public schools. As such, it receives no funding from public sources. Located in a suburb of Uganda’s capital city Kampala, the school is in a highly urban setting and must pay for water and sanitation service as well as teacher salaries and facilities. School Supplies include a school uniform, other clothing (underwear and after school clothing), hygiene items (soap, toothpaste, laundry soap, haircuts, etc) medical care, transportation, and entertainment (sports equipment, musical instruments). Educational materials include text books, light for studying at night, pencils, paper, etc. Room and board includes bedding, three meals a day seven days a week, and 24/7 adult supervision.
