Kamuli has a high population of young children and youth with high school dropout mostly by the girls due to ignorance of menstruation and puberty. Kamuli has a high ignorance levels of 76 % , according to report of ministry of education 2016. The households are living on one meal a day and most of them cannot afford sanitary towel for their children which has skyrocketed school dropout. Due to current change most of them live settled life with same permanent houses while the youth occupied mostly grass searched houses.

The community has interest in education but due to luck of scholastic material and mostly the girls drop out of school during puberty stage due to luck of sanitary pads and poor hygiene which affects their social life in school hence leading to drop out report from ministry education 2014.

Teachers teach face to face and each class room has 40 – 60 pupils interacting with teachers.
