Fairland High School
Located at Nakabago village, Fairland High School is a licensed and fully classified secondary school in Uganda. Established in 1998 within current Mukono Municipality, Fairland High School was suitably set up to offer affordable full secondary education to the underprivileged children and youth and most especially the orphans, street children, and needy teenagers; regardless of their gender, religious affiliation, or ethnic background.
In Uganda, vulnerable children account for about 5.6% of a total population of 40 million. Some are orphans as a result of socio-economic factors or the HIV/AIDS scourge which continue to claim peoples’ lives. After failing to find proper support and care, there are many such children roaming the streets of several Ugandan Towns. In Kampala and Mukono alone, about 20 such faces are seen on the streets on a daily basis. Unless something is done, the future of such children is undoubtedly dark and is bound to remain like that for the rest of their lives.
Fairland High School was conceived and put in place for the sole purpose of enabling such children acquire education in order to have a future. Due to its commendable progress, the Uganda Government in 2009 listed it as one of the schools to implement Government’s Universal Secondary Education (USE) in which it has offered free education to qualified teenagers country-wide. Furthermore, the school is used as a Community civic and pooling center, and National, Presidential, and other elections for Nakabago village; are conducted here from time to time.
