School Motto: Knowledge Flourishes

“Nawanyago College (NACO) was founded in 1999 after four Directors sat to evaluate the education status in Kamuli District, and particularly looked at how poverty affects performance in the Nawanyago area.  It was hoped that an affordable school could be established to offer services to the people”.  This was written by the head master and given to HvSMF when we first visited in March 2012.

The school is under the Public – Private Partnership and offers the Universal Secondary Education (USE) services to fully reach out to the community that is extremely poor.  It is a mixed O’Level and A’Level day and boarding school that provides affordable education services to the community yet minding about quality.  At the beginning of 2020 there were 77 female boarders and 40 male.  Their ranking for O’Level is usually within the top ten, out of 100 private and government secondary schools, in the district. Two HvSMF supported primary schools feed into Nawanyago College - Wankole Primary School and Bupadhengo Primary School.  The headmaster Rev John Koosi speaks excellent English and knows his school thoroughly.

The school runs many clubs including:  Scripture union, entrepreneurship club, human rights, environment, health and women’s education.  It also excels in district level both male and female sporting competitions.

At the moment the only teachers’ accommodation is across the road from the school.  We would like to donate 4 new teachers’ houses close to the 2019 teachers’ facilities in order that more teachers can live at the school and devote more time to the students.
