The School

The Ruhanga Development School is set amongst the rolling hills of SW Uganda about 40kms past Mbarara on the main road to Kabale and on towards Rwanda. The school is managed by the local PTA and a Ugandan NGO called ‘Stand On Your Own’. It is supported by the UK charity Uganda Lodge Community Projects (registered charity no. 1150023).From early beginnings in 2008 the school has rapidly gained in popularity and today offers education to well over four hundred pupils from the local community.
