Background:

Good Shepherd Junior School was started in 2012 in Kirembo Trading Centre by the Kirembo Catholic Church in Kasese Diocese. The school lies on one acre of land owned by the diocese and presently has 8 temporary wood and grass structures which serve as classrooms. In addition on the land is an incomplete permanent classroom block. These "buildings" house 10 primary school grade levels from Nursery through P7. Over 260 students are enrolled, children of the surrounding subsistence farmers. 

Good Shepherd is a private community school, started to address the need for a quality Christian-based education locally. 

Representatives from Classrooms for Africa have visited the school and recommend the project to their donors.
