Giuseppe Ambrosoli was born in a small village in Northern Italy on the 25th July 1923. He was the seventh of 8 children. He studied Medicine in Milan and though he had to stop his studies because of the war, in 1949 he graduated with the highest marks.
In 1989 a group of Italian parents met to start a new School: some of them were working for development agencies and NGOs, others were professionals working in Kampala , others again were long-term residents or married to Ugandan citizens.
All were sharing the desire of being protagonists of their children's education, and they set two aims to the new school. Firstly that it could be an educative environment where the children could learn and grow forming relationships with responsible and motivated teachers. Secondly that the curriculum could be such to enable the children to fit back into either an Italian school system or into an international school.
The newly born Italian School was dedicated to Father Giuseppe Ambrosoli, an Italian priest. He was an excellent medical doctor, known personally by some of the parents, who spent the whole of his life in the north of Uganda working to bring the truth and the life in a difficult situation of poverty and war. He died during the troubles in the north in 1987.
The small school did very well, to the satisfaction of children, parents and teachers. After a few years it was felt that a further step was needed. The school was opened to the international community, to enable the Italian children to participate more to the social life around them and to offer to children of other nationalities the caring education that the Italian children had been experiencing in the school.
As a result, Ambrosoli International School was started. At first it was only the Nursery and then it progressively expanded to the Primary classes to where we are now.
