Donela Schools

Quality Education for a Bright Future

The mission of Donela Orange Schools is to provide Christ-centered, quality, and affordable education that will equip this generation to transform their community and nation of Uganda for a bright future. 
Donela Orange Nursery and Primary Schools provide a quality education for children in Uganda from preschool through eighth grade. Donela Orange Senior School in Bombo provides education from ninth to twelfth grade.

Help a Child Attend a Donela School by Becoming a Sponsor

Education Rooted in Scripture

Apart from those needing specialized schooling, every child sponsored through Align attends one of our three Donela Schools. We also have nearly 900 children from the surrounding communities benefiting from the quality, Christ-centered education Donela School provides. At this time, all three Donela Schools are fully operated by Ugandan staff and funded almost entirely by student tuition. 

At the end of eighth grade, each student is required to pass a national exam to move on to the next grade. 100% of Donela students who sat for the most recent primary exam passed! 

How It Began

Align International began by focusing its efforts on finding sponsors for children in Uganda who needed food, clean water, medical care, and school tuition. Shortly after securing sponsors for a large number of children, we discovered the lack of quality schools for the children to attend. In several cases, schools withheld meals and failed to equip students with the education necessary to move to higher grades.

If these children were going to rise up and out of the poverty they were born into, we knew it was vital to provide them with an education that would set them up for success.  After much prayer, we partnered with Bombo Pentecostal Church to raise funds to build a school campus for children to attend under sponsorship and within the community of our church partner.

After building the Donela School Campus in Bombo, Uganda, we were able to build two more campuses in surrounding villages. Donela Schools are founded on Christian values, providing children with not only the education they need to succeed, but a foundation of faith from which they will grow. Our schools are also known for their unique curriculum in English and a reading program called “Zoo-phonics”, a multi-sensory language arts program introduced to the Donela Schools by an Align sponsor.

One Vision - Many Locations


Donela Orange Bombo was established in 2008 with just fifteen students. To date, the school has provided education for over 1400 children.  The campus has grown to include a Primary School for children from preschool to eighth grade and a Senior School for students in ninth to twelfth grade.  Through the efforts of school administration and local church members, Donela Orange Bombo obtained a bus to offer safe and reliable transport to and from campus.   The school is recognized for student success in the Primary Living Examinations, the nationwide test given to all students to advance into eighth grade. 

The current Headteacher of Donela Orange Bombo Nursery and Primary is Cecilia Asenkenye, a single mother of two. Ms. Asenkenye has been active at the school for many years, thanks in part to a scholarship provided by Peninsula Community Church in Rancho Palos Verdes, California. Prior to being named Headteacher in 2018, Ms. Asenkenye served as a classroom teacher and Dean.  

The previous Headteacher in Bombo and Kakooge Nursery & Primary School, Ivan Sekibaala, now serves as Headteacher of Donela Orange Bombo Senior School. He also received a scholarship through Peninsula Community Church and obtained his Basic Agriculture Degree. Mr. Sekibaala has excellent administrative skills and played a major role in making Donela Orange the best primary school in Bombo. Mr. Sekibaala was recently married to the Warden of the Life Home Village in Bombo, Diana Sekibaala. 

Ms. Asenkenye and Mr. Sekibaala are great assets to Donela and we are blessed to have their leadership in Bombo!


Donela Orange Kakooge was established in 2010 and currently has nearly 140 students enrolled. Previously Headteacher in Bombo, Jennifer Lokol, now serves as Headteacher in Kakooge. Mrs. Lokol has school leadership experience along with a passion to see her students thrive, both of which are vital for leading a school in one of the most impoverished areas we serve. Mrs. Lokol is married to Angello Lokol, the pastor of one of our partner churches, Wobulenzi Pentecostal Church. Mr. and Mrs. Lokol have been blessed with two little girls. We are excited to watch Mrs. Lokol bring the same academic success to Donela Orange Kakooge that she helped cultivate at Donela Orange Bombo.


Our newest campus, Donela Orange Wobulenzi, found its humble beginning in a garage in 2009. The school has since moved into school buildings that finished construction in 2016. The school now has almost 300 children enrolled, several of which benefit from the safe transport of the new school bus purchased through donations from our amazing supporters. Cesar Olap, who has served as Headteacher since the school’s inception, has nurtured it into a renowned primary school in Wobulenzi--starting well before the school had its own buildings! Mr. Olap has a degree in Fine Art Double Main with education.  All of the fine art decorating Donela Orange Bombo was even painted by Mr. Olap in 2008! He is happily married to Teddy Olap, a teacher at the school, and is a proud father of two boys and one girl. Mr. Olap also serves as a key leader at Wobulenzi Pentecostal Church and is heavily involved in the children's and music ministries.
