URDT Girls’ School uses the 2 generation approach whereby students and their parents learn together, develop a shared vision for their home, analyze their current situation, apply systems thinking, team learning, plan together and learn new skills.
The school’s mission is “to provide talented and disadvantaged girls and their homes in the greater Kibaale, with transformational and value-based education that shapes character and personality and imparts knowledge and skills, and creates excellence, prosperity, peace, health, freedom, and happiness”.
Alongside the national curriculum, the students get ‘change agent’ training to generate sustainable income, health, family cooperation, and peace at home while they study. The students transfer their newly gained skills through back-home projects; educative theatre, workshops and radio programmes.
The URDTGS aims to develop a pool of value-driven, visionary leaders who are committed to taking up transformation roles in their homes and communities.
