Bugabira School is a mixed, day and boarding primary school in Masaka, Uganda.The school was opened in February 2012 by the Community Health, Empowerment, Development and Relief Agency (CHEDRA) after a regional needs assessment revealed that many children in the surrounding areas have no access to affordable education. Bugabira and the surrounding areas of Kyali and Kyalguo, are amongst the poorest in the Masaka District and are home to many families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Many children are either orphans or living with an incapacitated guardian who is unable to provide for their basic needs.Bugabira School receives no government support but charges only minimum fees in order to make quality education accessible to these children.
Bugabira School is committed to giving children the skills and knowledge to solve current and future problems. The vision is to foster a new generation of empowered and community-minded individuals.
