> Partner Schools
Fields of Dreams Uganda partners with nine schools in the Central and Northern regions of Uganda. Our partner schools are carefully selected based on need, school leadership, community engagement and support for our mission. Each school we work with is uniquely wonderful, but all are overcrowded and stretched to capacity with limited resources.
Our day-to-day work with the students and faculty at these schools is also supplemented with annual grants to address school-specific challenges.
These grants have been used to repair roofs and entire classroom blocks, install electricity, construct new dormitories and to pilot a feeding program; the latter being of significant importance as the majority of the children we serve are malnourished.
We are fortunate to work with the receptive staff and the incredible students at these schools.
Bungatira Primary School
A government funded primary school located in Gulu district in Northern Uganda. Bungatira Primary School is a day school with more than 1,000 students in attendance. There is a deep love of soccer on this campus, and the staff is very talented and committed to seeing their students reach their fullest potential.
El Bethel Junior School
A private school in Mukono, located on the eastern edge of Kampala. FoDU has worked with El Bethel since early 2017 and believes in the staff and the positive culture they are creating for their students. El Bethel is a mixed day and boarding school, and FoDU is excited to see all that will come from the great potential that the students possess on this campus.
Gulu PTC Demonstration Primary School
A government funded primary school in Gulu district in Northern Uganda which shares a campus with Gulu Primary Teacher’s College. Gulu PTC has a long history of assisting students in the community, as their campus was used in housing the night commuters from the bush when the civil war was at its peak. Gulu PTC is a mixed day and boarding school, and FoDU is honored to be working with the staff and students on this campus.
Koro Primary School
A government funded primary school located in Gulu district in Northern Uganda. Koro Primary School is a day school with just under 1,000 students in attendance. FoDU selected Koro as a partner school due to the desire of the staff to engage the students, the involvement of parents and caregivers, and the school’s heart for the orphaned and vulnerable children in their midst.
Laroo Primary School
A government funded primary school located in Gulu district in Northern Uganda. Laroo Primary School is a mixed day and boarding school with more than 700 students on their campus. Laroo Primary School is also host to around 60 hearing impaired students who take part in both our soccer and education initiatives. There is much work to be done on this campus, and FoDU is excited to see hope spread across this campus.
Nabukalu Primary School
Nabukalu is our newest partner primary school located in Wakiso district in Central Uganda, just outside of Kampala. This is a government school and had a committed staff working with the 300 children on campus. FoDU is excited to establish hope on this campus, as the children are eager to excel in the classroom and on the pitch.
New Kabaale Busega

The campus serves a lot of vulnerable children, many of which have special needs. The leadership and staff at New Kabaale Busega have truly embraced the initiatives of FoDU, and it is obvious being on their campus that their school is full of dreamers.

St. Kizito Primary School
St. Kizito was added to our partner schools in 2017, and it is located in Wakiso district on the outskirts of Kampala. This school is a government school and it is a day school for just over 400 children. This school has many needs, but we know with the committed staff that is on the ground, exciting and positive changes are ahead. The first major goal at St. Kizito is to get a feeding program off the ground to assist the health and well being of the current student population.
