BoSS Project Description: Access to Early Learning

“BoSS” short for Building of a Slum School, is a brainchild of Daystar Junior School located in Kirombe slum village, Nsambya Makindye Division of Kampala city Uganda. The school serves a catchment area of two huge slums; Kirombe and Katwe. The BoSS Project is designed to continue promoting early talents from an early age. The project contributes to National Development priority Goal #5 of Uganda’s Vision 2040 – Human Capital Development; in the aspect of increasing access to education. This project will contribute to the social and economic development of Uganda by developing young Ugandan artists into resourceful and productive citizens. If their children do not attain a good education, they will be hopeless and unable to compete on the global marketplace of ideas and jobs. WATCH VIDEO
