The home is neighboring the Queen Elizabeth National Park along Kasese-Mbarara Road in the village of Kirembe Cell, Kirembe Ward, Kasese Municipality, Kasese District, Rwenzori sub-region, Western Uganda.

 

We also believe that the values and other life skills necessary to enjoy a good quality and standard of living, not only for the individual but also for the community and nation at large, must be established at the earliest stages of educational development and cultivated throughout the primary and secondary school experience.  With this foundation to stand on graduating students are more able to meet the challenges of adult life and to grow as productive citizens of the nation.
