Background:

Faith Alive Academy in Alango Parish in the Kitgum District of Uganda, was started in 2011 and enrolls over 400 students in Nursery and Primary classes. The school is situated on land owned by the Faith Alive Foundation, a local charity committed to working with underprivileged children. The school was started to provide a secure and structured learning environment to the children living in the displaced persons camps in the Kitgum area of northern Ugandan. The camps grew out of the 20 years of war and instability caused by the Lord's Resistance Army which raged in the area. 

Three classroom blocks have been built to accommodate Pre-school through Grade 7. The Faith Alive Foundation operates the school. Because of the high level of poverty in the area, Child Care International (Canada) sponsors over 250 students.
