This project builds and equips science classrooms with labs for 200 girls. Science courses and lab work is compulsory in Uganda. But until now most girls didn’t have equal access to equipment or labs
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
More than half of the 400 students at St. Andrews Secondary School are directly affected by the AIDS epidemic – including more than 200 girls. One of the most powerful means to improving their lives is through education. with the lab built, we now need to equip it to help bring science to life for the students. This project offers girls equal access to practical science education and opens new doors of opportunity. Many of the girls want to become doctors, nurses, teachers, etc. They have dreams
How will this project solve this problem?
By providing the science laboratory, girls will have the same opportunity as boys to fulfill their dreams. Josephine, a ZoomUganda girl, says, "When I grow up I want to become a nurse because I do sciences well. As a nurse, I can help people."
Potential Long Term Impact
The project will help educate more than 200 girls, allowing them to increase their incomes and provide for their families' health and well-being. This laboratory will impact generations of girls and women in this community for years to come.
