School Motto :  Obedience is Wisdom

Itukulu is a typical rural Ugandan primary school.  It is located in the Kamuli district about 2 miles west of the main Kamuli/Jinja road and is accessed via a dirt track.  It was founded by the church of Uganda some years ago.

The government originally built 10 classrooms, 7 were used as classrooms, one was a library, one was a store and one was used for the nursery section. They all needed renovation and bringing up to a standard that will last for the next 20 years. The boys' and girls' latrines were all unhygienic and mixed together which is not suitable in particular for older girls.

The nearest borehole was 2 kms away and there was a lack of teachers’ houses and latrines, which means the school could not recruit and retain good quality teachers. The current kitchen was made of wooden poles with a sheet of tin and was not fit for purpose.

During 2020 HvSMF donated very many projects which transformed this very rural primary school.  Unfortunately due to covid the playground was unable to be added until 2022.  In 2023 a new head teacher arrived and, we hope that because of the large donation to the school, plus the excellent support of the PTA and SMC, that he will be able to increase the enrolment and improve the academic standards.  We wish him all the best.
