The Terakoya Literacy Program is a non-formal primary school that supports 100 Rainbow House registered students, ranging from 9 to 16 years old, from primary one to primary five. The program is based on the Japanese Terakoya, or temple schools, a private education system that existed in Japan during the Edo Period (1603–1868).


This program follows Ugandan national curriculum set by the Ministry of Education. We are partnered with Fundi Bots, an organization that promotes practical science education in Africa, and Kumon, an education system that improves learners’ ability and fluency in mathematical operations. Terakoya also provides computer skills to all children under the program.
