Daystar Nursery and Primary School is a Christian founded school located in Eastern Uganda, Jinja District approximately 67kms from Kampala City with a vision of reaching out to the less privileged children in the community(s). Its location in the vast Masese 3 community adjacent to the impoverished Kikalamoja slum has given it the upper hand in fulfilling its mandate of improvising holistic education to a community full of multitudes of children with no access to education.

In partnership with Christian Horizon Global (CH Global) and Deeper Christian Life Ministries, we have together established different programs ranging from children and adult literacy programs, leadership development and vocational training and support in the outskirts of Jinja with over 500 children being direct beneficiaries from the educational services at Day Star Primary School. Daystar a Non-profiting making organization mainly depends on donations and the little fees paid by a few as their dues which are inadequate to cover the school dues. Daystar has a big population of 506 children and three quarters of them fall in that category of those whose parents/guardians are struggling to pay fees or fail completely to pay fees. For the last four years, the school has partnered with Christian Horizon Global from Canada (CH Global) who has been funding most of the school activities including feeding and sponsoring up to 400 children.

In place are 2 classroom blocks, 1 administration block and 1 main hall under construction. All these have been put in place through the generous contributions of friend, well-wishers and the generous contributions of especially partners like CH-Global.


A lot has been achieved more especially in as far as the general transformation of the children’s lives is concerned.

The word of God is shared with these children every day and then on Saturday through a Bible club which was established right in the community through which an average of 650 children are discipled and trained every weekend bringing transformation of the lives of children in the community.

About 120 children have graduated to high school from the slum community through the efforts of the school

An adult literacy program was begun at the school in 2014 where about 60 adults have been trained and an economic empowerment program for the children and community to help cub the challenge of poverty. 


Since the school mainly depends on donations it is so challenging to run the activities of the school more so as it very hard to make savings because whatever comes in is a vote for a particular item. It so threatening more so at the time when CH Global the main donor is phasing out their support.

“We call upon your support in the cause of keeping the less privileged children of our community in school to give them a bright future.” Mrs. Rose Batyakunyaga the headmistress of the school
