The Current School

Zion Kids Palace is a rural early learning center in the western part of Uganda. It was formed out of the need to provide affordable, accessible and quality education for children 3-6 years old who never had a chance to access this foundation. In Uganda, children between 0-6 years constitute almost 30% of the population but only less than 5% are accessing some form of quality education. We aim to enable rural children to compete with other children at the national level, and provide them with an equal opportunity at life regardless of their current economic situation.

Why are we doing this?

Zion Kids Palace is a rural early learning center in the western part of Uganda, which was formed out of the need to provide affordable, accessible and quality education for children 3-1o years old who never had a chance to access this opportunity. Most of their parents are predominantly poor and looked at education at this stage as a luxury. We decided to bring this service closer to the community by using whatever resources we had.

Due to the vulnerability of children in the community and lack of a secure child friendly early childhood development learning centre, Zion Kids Palace was formed. Racheal and Herbert, undertook a decision to start an Early Learning Center to holistically address the early childhood development needs of vulnerable children from an early stage in Mbarara Municipality. And what we do as a school means a lot to the parents and even more to the children who come to this school. Due to popular demand, attendance for the school has increased beyond the capacity we can provide for the children. We know that we are making a difference and impacting the lives of children when they are able to receive quality education.
