Our Lady of Guadalupe

BACKGROUND INFORMATION OF THE SCHOOL:

This is a brain child of St. Kizito High School Bethany and it almost has everything in common like its mother save for it being a mixed school. It was founded and started by the Sisters of IHMR in 2011 in the person of Sr. M. Salome Nambi and a group of friends from America who hail from Wisconsin.

 It was in 2006, when a group of people from the neighboring villages of St. Kizito high school, namely: Kireku, Kikoko, Busolo, Ngugulo, Sugezi, Mpogo, Buteeteeyi, Buwemula and Mayirye approached Sr. Salome the headmistress of St. Kizito High –Bethany, on the need to have a School in the area that can accommodate both boys and girls at a secondary level and at an affordable cost. This was seen as an urgent need for in the entire Parish of Mpogo the only nearest secondary school was within a radius of 13 kilometers and this hindered many potential students from walking to the school. This was leading to many school drop-outs after Primary level.

This school is named after the Patroness of the America – Our Lady of Guadalupe, who appeared to Juan Diego in Mexico.
