Vision Care Nursery and Primary School is located in Kyondo Sub-County, Kanyatsi Parish, Musasa Village in the town of Kayrumba, in the Kasese District of Western Uganda. The beautiful region is in the foothills of the Rwenzori range, popularly called the Mountains of the Moon.
Vision Care has 142 students - 52 boys and 90 girls. There are 35 preschoolers, 17 kindergarteners, 29 first graders, 16 second graders, 12 third graders, 16 fourth graders, and 17 fifth graders.
The school has a clinic - Pellissier Science Laboratory #2. PSL2 attends to all of the health needs of the children, providing health education - and medicine when necessary.
Vision Care costs $7/month to attend. It is a private school; Uganda has numerous private schools because public schools are overcrowded with substandard academics, plus there aren’t enough rural public schools available at distances that are convenient for every student.
