Background:

New Covenant Community School was established in 2012 by The Evangelical Orthodox Church in Uganda (The EOCU) to address the need for quality education with Christian values. It is located in the village of Kisebere in the Bwera area of the Kasese District of Uganda, close to the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. The school consists of two divisions each on different pieces of land both of which the school owns. Present enrolment is 423 students in Kindergarten through Grade 5. Many of the students are rural orphans and children from extremely poor village homes.   

The land on which the Primary division is located is large enough to contain a full Primary School, and the plan is to offer all the grades as permanent classrooms are built. Apart from providing basic education, The EOCU is offering pastoral care, rural health services and vocational skills training for vulnerable and jobless youth.

The church is in partnership with Classrooms for Africa to raise funds for the school buildings for the needy and vulnerable children at New Covenant School Community.  Please support!
