Aspire High School

Aspire High School, Ibanda, Uganda

Ibanda district is located in the western region of Uganda and is part of the Ankole Sub-Region. The school was opened on Wednesday 27th July 2016 by a Costa Foundation Trustee and was the 57th Costa Foundation school project to be opened around the world.

Sitting in a stunning hilltop location with incredible views of the lush coffee-growing terrain, this 4 classroom school with boarding accommodation and admin block has already attracted 390 students of which 54% are girls. The school has employed 11 teachers plus local staff and as the enrolment numbers are so high, the construction of an additional 4 classrooms has already begun.

The visiting Costa Foundation Trustee was treated to a joyful afternoon celebration in the bright sunshine with typical energy and enthusiasm from the children, teachers and parents alike.
