KYANINGA INCLUSIVE MODEL SCHOOL

KIMs is not just another school in Africa, it is an important aspect of Kyaninga Education Hub which is an organisation dedicated to improving teaching and learning by offering training in Inclusive Education. KIMS is the realisation of Kyaninga Education Hub’s vision for outstanding education for every child by all teachers in every school in Uganda. KIMS is a unique school located in Fort Portal, Western Uganda. KIMS offers a wonderful, engaging and child-centred education to a diverse group of children, including children with disabilities and typical learners from diverse socio-economic backgrounds.a

At KIMS we hold dearly to our hearts the story of the little girl and the starfish.

A girl was walking along a beach, there were thousands of stranded starfish, when she came to each starfish she picked it up and placed it back into the sea. A man observed the girl and said “You can’t begin to make a difference “. The little girl replied as she placed a starfish in the sea
“Well, I’ve made a difference to that one!”

This is our simple objective – to make a difference to each and everyone of our children so that they can make a contribution to the world they live in.

REHABILITATION AND THERAPY

Our aim is for all children to become functionally independent and go on to become valued and productive members of their community.

TRANSPORT

Our parent community works together to provide essential transport which allows our children with disabilities in hard to reach places to access school.

PART OF A WIDER SOLUTION

As a model school, KIMS provides local teachers, trainers of teachers and those responsible for implementing educational policy, with the opportunity to experience best practice at first hand. KIMs demonstrates how teachers can use more engaging and inclusive teaching methods to improve the learning of all children. Seeing CWDs learn and succeed is gradually breaking down the barriers and stigma around CWDs that currently exist within the Ugandan education system. The provision of high-quality education for all, breaks the cycle of poverty, providing hope and life choices to even the most marginalised children.
