“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”- Nelson Mandela
At MCDO, we believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty within families and the community as a whole. With high drop out rates and a lack of quality standards within schools in Iganga, we are committed to challenging the typical status quo. Instead, we offer the community quality educational institutes that go beyond exclusively utilizing the Ugandan curriculum to raise the next generation of Ugandan leaders to “be the change.”
Musana Nursery and Primary Schools
Musana Nursery and Primary School’s two campuses educate more than 1,200 children from the surrounding community and other areas of Uganda. Our education team is committed to seeing the children develop into strong champions who will drive the future development of their country. Expanding off of the Ugandan curriculum, our teachers strive to offer a holistic learning experience focused on leadership, creative thinking, literacy, and practical life skills. Additionally, the children partake in many extra curricular activities that include soccer, volleyball, netball, track and field, arts and crafts, music, dance, drama, and agriculture. Musana’s schools offer kid-friendly spacious environments with bright colorful buildings that contain the best educational facilities in Iganga. In 2017, Musana Nursery and Primary School ranked as #4 in Iganga District and was promoted by the Ugandan government as a center of excellence. We are known for our high educational standards, exceptional living conditions and most importantly, our emphasis on being a Christ-centered loving home to all the children who enter our gates.
Musana Vocational High School
Musana Vocational High School (MVHS) opened in February 2017 to give our primary school graduates a place to continue to be molded into difference-makers who will drive their country in the decades to come. MVHS stresses leadership and character building, as well as pushes creative thinking and literacy to the next level. Simultaneously, students take courses in trade skills such as welding, catering and hospitality, mechanics, carpentry, tailoring, etc. As a result, these young adults are being equipped mentally and physically for the next chapter of their lives, with the character, brains, and skills either to continue their education, utilize their trade to provide for themselves and their families, or both. Currently, Musana Vocational High School educates 470+ Senior 1 to Senior 3 students. By 2021, this number will grow to 800, offering both Ordinary and Advanced levels from Senior 1 to Senior 6.
