About Gulu Globetrotters
We are Gulu, Uganda’s only education cooperative. We are made of parents and teachers working together to develop confident and compassionate individuals with a global worldview nurtured through high-quality, holistic education infused with Kingdom Values.
Gulu Globetrotters is an education cooperative with a Christian ethos, based in Gulu, Uganda. We are made up of local and expat families who want an alternative to the education currently available in Gulu. We started in June 2017, with four families and seven children, doing a homeschool cooperative using a homeschool curriculum from the UK. We had one teacher and a classroom assistant. We have since grown to offer a full schooling program based on UK online curricula. We serve 27 children aged 2-11 from 18 families, 12 nations, and 5 continents. Each year we add a new grade. We are reestablishing our program and rebuilding our team post-lockdown.
At Gulu Globetrotters we create an environment of safety, nurture, social development, self-actualization, academic excellence and rounded experiential learning to see our children achieve their God given potential. With small class sizes and parent involvement from our culturally diverse community, we offer a unique educational experience for each child. We work towards every child leaving Globetrotters enabled to live adaptively anywhere in the world. We aim to root our community in Kingdom Values, raising thriving children who are good neighbors, confident, compassionate, faithful, slow to anger and rich in love.
After massive infrastructural upgrades, the national government officially declared Gulu a city proper in August 2020. Gulu is a safe city with nearly 300,000 people of the Acholi tribe. City residents are very friendly and welcoming to people from all over the world. Uganda boasts beautiful nature and safari excursions like that to the Nile River and gorilla trekking. Activities in Gulu include an outdoor adventure center and a plethora of restaurants and cafes in addition to traditional Ugandan food: Ethiopian, American, Indian. Uganda’s fertile land grows a variety of the freshest fruits and vegetables: bananas, maize, cassava, aloe vera, potatoes, papaya, mango, oranges, lemons at the dispense of one’s backyard. There are opportunities to learn or practice Swahili or Acholi and explore all that East Africa has to offer.
