Outspan School Uganda
Education & Self-Reliance for Orphans
The Outspan School was founded in 1995, in Kampala, Uganda, by Tom Ngobi and co-headmaster Dismas Ooturi. They believe Scouting and education go hand-in-hand and combined Scout principles with academic development. The result is a truly unique foundational program for orphans and destitute youth in East Africa.
The Outspan School produces motivated graduates who lift up their society through education, life skills, self-reliance and teamwork. Graduates break away from hopeless slums or subsistence in the bush. Instead, they enter a vocation or gain admission into college.
The Outspan Primary School began with 195 destitute kids and AIDS orphans. Today, with the addition of a secondary school compound in 2011, the school now supports 500 students annually.
Donations of funds and labor from caring individuals and churches over time, have enabled the school to build sturdy dorms and classrooms in two locations. The original papyrus-roofed classrooms are still in use.
The Outspan School program is supported by your donations to the International Committee of the Boy Scouts of America, Mount Diablo-Silverado Council, located in Pleasant Hill, CA.
Enabling the most vulnerable African children & orphans to lift up themselves and their society through education, self-reliance, learned skills and World Scouting principles.
