About Kutamba: This very remote and rural area is even poorer and more destitute than the Kanungu District. In 2007, a student named Hilary walked 50km to ask us to assist him and others attain an education, and Kutamba was born!  This school was designed and built with help from Architecture for Humanity and is considered one of the best constructed schools in Western Uganda. It continues to grow with strong support and oversight from its local management committee and community.
