Nursery and Junior School

Divine Day Care Kajjansi Uganda School Children

About Divine

The centre caters for disadvantaged children most of them with special needs including physical and psychological challenges, HIV /AIDS and other medical problems, malnourished children and those whose parents are psychotic (mentally ill) and therefore not able to take care of them. They receive medical and nursing care plus formal school education. It’s a community based organization in Kajjansi, Kampala Uganda.

From Humble Beginnings

Divine Day Care Nursery and Junior School was born out of a strong passion for children by it's founder Deborah Gita, a retired nurse and a graduate of Aga khan university (Post RN BscN). The school started with only two children in 2013, Christopher and Jedidiah and by December 2015 it had 31 children. At the start of 2017 it had 70 pupils and it's ongoing target is to simply increase in numbers and services offered to children from the most unfortunate of backgrounds and circumstances.

Equality For All

The school caters for all categories of children: from the fairly advantaged to the disadvantaged, physically handicapped and stigmatized, HIV positive orphans and many others with special needs such as Hydrocephalus (abnormal accumulation of fluid in the brain), Albinism, and for those where rejection from other schools is sadly common place. In Uganda there is a high level of unacceptance from schools through ignorance and stigma attached to many children's conditions and special needs.

Nursery Facilities

Divine also takes care of babies while their parents go to work. They are dropped off in the morning and picked up in the evenings. Some children have graduated from daycare to the nursery section. The school has two rooms with cots and beds, and trained staff to look after and care for these babies throughout the whole day. Nurturing, cleaning, feeding, entertaining, interacting, health checks and monitoring is just a normal part of every day life and care offered by the dedicated Divine Day Care staff members.

The School - The Future

Divine Day Care Main Building Front Fund raising is a key part of maintaining the success and secure future of Divine. Desperate efforts are being made to raise money with a view to purchasing the land and the property for sustainability and development.

Divine Day Care Staff As well as the exceptional work at the Divine Day Care, over time it has also helped to create jobs for teaching staff and assistants with the aim towards continuing growth so that even more services can be added, helping to change many lives.

Meet The Children

All of which would not have been possible without the love, care and dedication of the Divine Day Care.

When she retired she added all of her retirement money to her savings and witnessed the birth of her project, which she has continued to demonstrate such a passion for.


Funds are urgently required for a school mini bus. Without transportation many children suffer greatly and miss out on the opportunities of education, special need requirements, medical welfare, social interaction, child development and so much more. The Divine Day Care can only do so much and without urgent assistance this could have a huge impact on many children's lives, so please join in with our fund raising. Thank you.

And Divine Offers Even More

The Divine Day Care also offers a boarding section where some children live in at the school either permanently or during the week. Some students come from very far not able to go back every day and others do not even have a home to go back to. Dedicated staff work around the clock to cater for these children and their needs including recreational activities, art, dance and more, all in continued efforts to improve quality of life and child development.
