Demonstration Nursery and Primary School

Where we are

Located in the Namutumba district of Eastern Uganda, rural Nabikabala village is home to The African SOUP’s Primary and Nursery School and dynamic community development projects.

 

Partnering with the local community to address it's most critical needs is essential to the development of our programs. The SOUP's investment in Nabikabala ranges from education initiatives to overall health support and sustainable enterprises.

What We Do

At the core of our work, we provide educational opportunities to more than 650 children in rural Uganda through our Nursery and Primary School. The SOUP school offers high-quality academics and co-curricular activities in a safe, nurturing environment that inspires hope and learning.

 

Our school features a large community garden, a computer lab, and a food program with two hot, nutritious meals daily and an evening meal for more than 70 boarding students.

What Makes Us Unique

  • A progressive learning environment focused on active, student-centered learning

  • A biogas latrine that harnesses methane gas for crop fertilization and cooking

  • A demonstration garden where students learn how to grow nutritious crops that are prepared in our kitchen daily

  • A fully operational campus with two boarding homes and teacher/volunteer housing 

  • Solar panels to electrify the entire campus 

  • An outdoor kitchen that serves scholars two hot meals each day 

  • Onsite healthcare as needed 

  • Two clean water boreholes for both the school and the village 

  • An IT lab where students and teachers learn basic computer skills

Our Goal

Our goal for The African SOUP is for local operations to be financially sustainable and Ugandan led and driven. Governed by a Ugandan Board of Directors, the SOUP currently generates local revenue through school and boarding fees and by selling produce grown in our fruit and vegetable gardens. Our next phase of development will seek to invest in a larger scale sustainability project that is community led, granting them the financial ownership and sovereignty to propel The African SOUP to its greatest potential.
