Mgahinga Community Junior School

Flagship education insitution of Mgahinga Community Development Organization.​


Mgahinga Community Junior School is an educational facility which was initiated by local farmers who combined their efforts in a group known as “Gisozi Duter’imbere Farmers Association (GDFA).  The association started far back in the year 2002 as a result of Functional Adult Literacy (FAL) program where adult people especially women who had never got chance to acquire formal education would learn how to read and write as well as basic accounting. After a two year course of such learning, the learners decided to put their knowledge into practice by initiating the farming project. The main crop dealt with is Irish potatoes. Also, they do sheep rearing and sometimes mushroom growing.
