The project currently supports 31 children who were all visited both at school and home. The children’s holiday activity and feeding program are also here integrated. Akello Margaret “Platform for Labour Action has been supporting my education since Primary Six up to now. I am now a Senior Four candidate”, said Margret. The school administration of Okwang Secondary School has been able to offer Margaret a bursary of 30,000 after she played football for the school team at lira play ground. ‘’During my free time at school, I play football and I have also been doing the same during my holidays,” excitedly mentioned Margret. Margret’s performance has steadily improved and gets better every year. In her latest report, she scored aggregates 15 for the 8 best done subjects. She is a super A-student. She emerged the second out of 177 students! ‘’My dream is to become an engineer that’s why i am trying to study hard because I need to make it a reality,” says Margret. Feeding at school During the term, children had their school meals on time. This has improved their concentration. Holiday activity During the reporting period, children had their holiday activity, aimed at making them know each other and sharing experiences for peer support. They enjoyed it. “We really enjoyed the co-curricular activities this holiday,” stated 17-year old Akello Margaret in Senior Four at Okwang Secondary School. Starting this year, children will have this activity every holiday, that is thrice a year. Oliver Ajok is an 11-year old primary three pupil at Lira Police Primary School. She lives with her mother, Ms. Akullu Hilda, her sisters and brother. The mother is supportive of her daughter’s education. “My mother encourages me to study hard so that I can one day work in a big office,” says Oliver. She wants to become a doctor. During holidays, Oliver helps with house chores and is looking forward to the next joint holiday activity.
