Background:

NISSI Christian Junior School is situated in the remote village of Kyampengere in the Lwengo District approximately 60 km south of the town of Masaka. The school was started in 2012 by villagers concerned that their children did not have access to primary education in their area. The school is operated by a board consisting of representatives from the local church and community and is licensed by the Uganda Ministry of Education. The land is owned by the local Full Gospel Church who have worked closely with the founders to make the school a reality.

Currently just under 300 students are enrolled at the NISSI in Nursery through Grade 5. The estimate is that over 1000 children of primary age in the immediate vicinity are not currently in any school. Presently classes are held in temporary mud and stick structures.
