New Horizon

In 2006 Noah's Ark opened it's own school: New Horizon. The school offers education to the growing number of children in the Children's Home and children from the most poort families in the surrounding area. As the school motto "From Nobody to Somebody" says, New Horizon believes that education can change the lives of these children by giving them a brighter outlook on their future.

Starting with only a few classes at the Primary School, New Horizon now also consists of a Nursery School, Primary School and a Secondary Vocational School. About two thirds of the students enrolled in the schools come from the local community via New Horizon's sponsorship program.

Nursery School

Nursery School

At the age of three children start their educational career at the Nursery School. In three years they work their way to Primary School. While most Ugandan nursery schools start teaching the children how to count, read and write by endlessly repeating letters, words and numbers, New Horizon has a different approach: Learning by Playing.

Primary School

Primary School

The Primary School consists of seven classes. Depending on their development, children usually start in the first class when they are six years. The New Horizon Primary School strives to offer more than a blackboard; every week there are extra-curricular activities to have fun and stimulate the children in a different way.

Secondary Vocational School

Secondary Vocational School

New Horizon offers a unique type of education in Uganda by combining a Secondary and Vocational school into one. While subjects like mathematics and geography are taught in the class room, students gain piratical experience for skills like carpentry and mechanics in one of the workshops on the compound.

New Horizon Sponsorship Program

Kind uit het dorp In the wide area surrounding Noah's Ark their are many children without a good outlook on life: their parents or caretakers are struggling to provide food and clothes so paying school fees is impossible to them. Often these children stay at home or are working to generate some extra income for the family. Noah's Ark selects children from the most poor families in the area and gives them a New Horizon by offering free education. By joining the sponsorship program you are not only supporting a child but the whole family.
