CONSTRUCTION OF A SECONDARY SCHOOL FOR THE BLIND IN UGANDA.
Itinga Charity Education Foundation (ICEF) in partnership with Imara-Uganda Education Fund is supporting the construction of a secondary school for the blind in Northern Uganda. The school aims to provide inclusive Education to visually impaired students and others learners (Education for all). The school will be a secondary section of Ngetta Girls Primary School which has for many years been providing inclusive education to special needs pupils.
The construction is progressing in phases.
Construction of the main building is progressing well and it is in the final stage of completion. It comprises of 8 class rooms, offices, staffroom and toilets. The plan is to open the school with senior one in 2024 and use some of the rooms temporarily to meet all the needs of the school while the construction of other facilities continues. We are so grateful to our partner Imara-Uganda Education Fund who provided grants for the construction of phase one of the main building. Many thanks to all donors who are donating for this project.
Your generosity is making such a difference to the lives of our scholars, and the new school will give more hope and opportunity to the blind children and other learners for many years to come.
The visually impaired learners sing a song of hope:
ALL I SEE TODAY ARE THE POSSIBILITIES. They are very grateful for the inclusive scholarships and inclusive education.
In 2024 the plan is to extend the main building by adding on the multipurpose hall, 2 in 1 computer lab (main computer lab and braille specialized computer lab) and 2 in 1 library (main library and braille library for braille textbooks). We believe that through your generous contributions, we can provide these facilities and even more come year 2024.
The school will also require permanent dormitories, extra toilet facilities and a science laboratory.
