- Mission Statement:
- History of Hekima Girls’ School:
In the 1960, Kamukukubwa was nationalized like most missionary schools at that time. Later it was handed to the Regional Co-operative Union who started a co-educational
private secondary school.
In 1988, the school was handed back to the Theresian Sisters and Hekima was formally established, as the first ever all-girls private secondary school in the region.
Hekima is a boarding school located in the small village of Kashozi, 12 km north of Bukoba town, in the Kagera Region of Tanzania.
- Identity Statement:
The Theresian Sisters recognized the potential of reclaiming the school with the purpose of providing a quality education, as per their mission statement.
Although the Theresian Sisters founded Hekima, it is not religiously biased. Students and teachers from all regions are accommodated and given equal academic and religious opportunities.
