About Us

The Charity, Greenacres Education Trust, primarily support Greenacres Junior Academy at Bombo, Luwero.

The school provides ten full time mixed day and boarding primary education facilities for 290 children between 4-12 years old from diverse backgrounds.

The school activities are supervised by a Governing Board, parents and teachers association and administered by a dedicated team composed of a headteacher, 13 class-teachers, 4 house matrons/wardens, 11 support staff.

The school offers indirect employment to local farmers supplying food and the local community who supply services.

In due course it is hoped that the school will be able to provide:

  • Secondary and Advanced level education for older pupils.
  • Offer Gap year and internship to local and overseas students.
  • Facilitate periodical adult/youth skills training workshops in collaboration with independent government and professional non-governmental bodies.

The funds donated to the charity are utilized to imporove facilities, completion of facilities under construction, expansion, extracurricular facilities, staff training for capacity building.

One of the broad aims is to expand the school beyond primary level so that pupils could continue to secondary, advanced level education and move on when they are mature enough to make informed decisions to join universities, vocational training institutions or seek employment.

The charity's aims to provide facilities to support other educational programs in communities around the school through workshops aimed at community health care, maternal health programes, generation of household incomes, environmental protection awareness, self-employment and entrepreneurial training skills.

Management of the charity and allocation of funds is made by the charity trustees based on recommendations from the school board and a select committee of local school teachers, community and spiritual elders at grassroot level.

The charity trustees visit projects benefiting from funds half yearly to assess and ensure funds allocated are appropriately utilised.
