When Christine Nakabuye’s story ap - peared on this page in 2011, indicating that she was stranded at the Central Police Station (CPS), Kampala, Polly Ochora, the director of Team Christian School, located at Lyamutundwe near Entebbe town, came to her rescue.
Nakabuye had dropped out of school in Bugerere and had been brought to Kampala to work as a maid. She escaped from her employer and a Good Samaritan, who found her stranded, took her to the Central Police Station, Kampala.
Team Christian School, which took on Nakabuye in 2011, provided her with everything. She sat Primary Leaving Examinations last year and scored aggregate 17.
Ochora says a second grade is a big achievement for Nakabuye since her level of education had been poor at the time she joined the school.
“We have played our part by providing her with primary educa - tion. We wish someone could help her pursue secondary education,” Ochora said.
A total of 22 pupils at the school passed in Division One and 13 in Division 2. The best pupil at the school, which also looks after needy children from the north, scored aggregate 6.

Beaten for eating bananas
Disan Muleba, 5, was rescued by Kawempe Police this week, after a tip-off from his parents’ neighbours. It is alleged that his father and step-mom beat him badly, accusing him of eating two fingers of bananas from his step-mom’s business.
His pleas that he was hungry did not stop his father from allegedly whipping him with a cable. According to the Police, Muleba’s body bore many wounds, due to several beatings. Fortunately, an organisation known as Action for Children in Kamwokya provided him with treatment.
Muleba says he wants to live with his biological mother, but he does not know her name. The Police are searching for his father and step-mother, who vanished. To help him, call 0772646348.
DaD locks sick boy in house
Yahaya Dumba, 7, was rescued by Kawempe Police, after a tip-off from residents of Kazo–Angola zone.
The Police learnt that Dumba’s father, Mohammed Nyanzi, a boda boda cyclist in Kampala, had been locking him inside the house ever since he broke his arm, saying ‘Allah’ would cure him. Dumba’s mother, Nangobi, a resident of Kibuli, left Nyanzi with Dumba and his nine-year-old sister.
The Police learnt that Nyanzi rarely leaves food for the children and returns home late. An organisation known as Action for Children, located in Kamwokya, offered treatment for Dumba at Mulago Hospital as the Police hunt for Nyanzi. Whoever knows Dumba’s mother should call 0772646348.
Kalanzi ran away from mom
Shaffiq Kalanzi, 10, is a Primary Five pupil of St.

Kalanzi lived with his mother, Zaitun Babirye, a baby sitter at Kyengera. He explained that his mother used to come back home late after work and often beat him, which forced him to run away.
A Good Samaritan found him stranded at Namirembe Road and took him to Old Kampala Police Station. The Police urge his relatives to pick him. Call 0711042336.
