Welcome to KAASO

St. Paul KAASO (Kabira Adult Attention & School for Orphans) is a unique community project in Uganda that provides education and mentorship to orphans in one of the areas hardest-hit by the HIV/AIDS crisis. KAASO is first and foremost a primary school, but relies on an interconnected network of community initiatives to keep the school running and the level of education high.

The school’s motto – “Invest in Education” – not only applies to the children, but also the adults of the community. KAASO’s ultimate goal is to empower people, both young and old, to enable them to follow their dreams and realise their full potential. 

About

KAASO was founded in 1999 by two Ugandan teachers, Dominic and Rose Mukwaya, who set out to help orphaned children in their district receive a first-class education.

Projects

KAASO’s success over the years has been thanks to community involvement and a series of initiatives that work together to make education at KAASO sustainable. By bringing together parents, guardians, volunteers and community members, KAASO has created a centre for innovation, entrepreneurship and out-of-the-box thinking.
