Grand Priory of Uganda - Future Victory School (October 2013)
The Grand Priory of Uganda, by means of its strategic alliance with Humanity Healing International, has partnered with Future Victory School, FVS, a private educational institution, licensed by the Ministry of Education and Sports. It was established in the year 2000 as a response to an avalanche of orphans created by AIDS and the Civil War in Uganda. Currently, there are 320 students enrolled, 150 of which are orphans, 10 are HIV+, and 4 are disabled. The Grand Priory both sponsors FVS and utilizes the school to optimize pilot programs being developed before rippling them out across sub-Saharan Africa.
Future Victory School has a physical location of Bugaya Zone, LC1, Kiwungu Village, Butansi Sub-county, Bugabula County, Kamuli District, Eastern Uganda, East Africa.
The mailing address is:
P.O BOX 33704, Kampala, Uganda, East Africa
P.O BOX 88, Kamuli, Uganda, East Africa
The Education System in Uganda consists of 3 each 3 ½ month terms per year and is structured as follows:
Nursery, N1-N3: Baby, Middle, Top
Primary, P1-P7: Students enter P1 at 6 years of age.
This is the upper limit of guaranteed public education in Uganda. If a child has funds, they can enroll in Secondary School, also referred to as High School or College.
The long-term goal of HHI at FVS is to build and expand the educational program to include Secondary Education, S1-S4, on the grounds. The opportunities for orphaned children to receive an education higher than P7 are very rare. The creation of a Secondary School would provide an unheard of opportunity for these orphaned and economically disadvantaged children.
