ABSTRACT This study was about an investigation into the roles of stakeholders in enhancing education of children with visual impairment in mainstream classes in Namugongo Sub County, Kaliro District. The specific stakeholders were the schools and private sector, which bracketed parents, institutions/organizations and community. The three objectives which guided this study were; to identify the role of the private sector in enhancing education of children with visual impairment, to identify the role of schools in the same, and then challenges faced by children with visual impairment in mainstream classes. A sample population of 125 respondents was conveniently selected and investigated using structured questions. Data was analyzed descriptively from results run using Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS). Results revealed that the role of private sector in enhancing education of children with visual impairment in Namugongo Sub County, Kaliro District was; extending services to enhance legal procedures, advocacy programs for the education of these children and support for transport to school on regular bases. On the other hand, schools had a role also in enhancing education of children with visual impairment by encouraging cooperation between teachers and learners, increasing on staff size, and provision of writing materials. The study also found out that there were significant challenges reported faced by learners with visual impairment in mainstream classes which mainly included; fear of punishments in school, discrimination by community and parents, inadequate learning facilities, and lack of adequate instructional materials
