Uganda, also known as the Pearl of Africa, is home to more than 44 million people, of which more than 50 percent is under the age of 15. This means that education has to be a priority for the country. One of the most ethnically diverse countries in the region, Uganda is favoured with a tropical climate and rainfall all year round. Generously gifted by nature, it is home to some of Africa’s best tourist attractions. Last year (2017), US-based Cable News Network (CNN) listed Uganda as one of the World’s top five tourist destinations.

Dr James and Mrs Magara started to homeschool their four children through the A.C.E. program in 2002. Three years later, on 3 February 2005, Vine International Christian Academy (VICA) opened its doors. This was the first A.C.E. school established in Uganda. Over the last 13 years, it has grown from 22 students and 8 staff members, to a population of 312 students and 69 staff members.

Two years ago, Uganda registered Education Accelerators Limited (EAL), an umbrella body that going forward, will provide support to all A.C.E. schools in the country. Uganda currently has 22 established A.C.E. schools, with a total of 1273 students, of which 111 are home scholars. A.C.E. graduates from Uganda go on to pursue their dreams around the world. Currently, 14 students are studying in international universities.

The vision of VICA and all A.C.E. schools in Uganda, is to raise a generation of God-fearing men and women who will impact on all spheres of society for God.
