Kyazanga Modern Primary School’s mission is to improve standards of living for underprivileged and disadvantaged, orphans and youth by promoting formal and informal education, providing accommodation to the orphans and advocating for their basic fundamental human rights and social justice.
Due to problems encountered in the community, where many students failed to meet their basic requirements, it was clear that the issues that were preventing children from attending schools were due to family and community problems. Hence, Joy For Humanity emerged from Kyazanga Modern Primary School to help solve community problems from the grass root. To further fulfil its mission, Kyazanga Modern Old Students Association (KMOSA) was established such that all children who finish primary school are mentored in aspects of Education, Behaviour etc such that when they are released back into the community as health, educated and well-adjusted adults, they will surely play a part in rebuilding their community and country into a positive and prosperous community and nation in general.
Children who go through the school are not only educated but are also directed on what to do for their families and communities and this has helped to raise a new breed of young leaders in the community who work together to transform their community and Joy is starting to prevail over the community people who have been less privileged and deprived for a long time.
Through Joy For Humanity, Bright Heart Children program was introduced in the school to teaches children to live with six universal principles of courage, compassion, truth, justice, freedom and peace. This innovative programme which is embedded into classroom teaching in this rural school has seen it ranked among the top 200 primary schools in Uganda, a highly rare achievement for a rural school.
Plans are underway to establish a Modern Secondary School in 2022 that will help to take up the Primary Leavers who at times fail to continue their education due to lack of necessary requirements even after attaining best grades at Primary level. Enough Land for the Secondary School project has been acquired, and Joy For Humanity is looking for partners to start the construction of modern facilities.
Joy For Humanity also plans to establish Uganda Innovation Centre (UIC), a “smart” centre that will work as a model for young technology innovators and entrepreneurs in Uganda. This will help to have a generation of leaders who will be empowered with technology and entrepreneurship skills that will promote quality life for themselves, their families, community and the country at large.
UIC will be open to all innovative students and people and will incorporate individual student and teams with venture entrepreneur and technology incubation programs. These will be mentored to get qualified into Tested Projects Launch Laboratory (TPLL) with ready projects to be commercialised.
With different innovative ideas in education, Joy For Humanity is providing a model for Uganda which will help to solve the most pressing needs through entrepreneurship and technology innovation hence providing innovation focused learning and development.
