Orphans in Uganda are often left with little !!!!!

 Orphans in Uganda are often left with little resources and support, especially in regards to reaching their educational dreams. To best address this, the organization is a received donation for his project, Green Hill Education Centre in Mityana, Uganda. With support from the recurring donors renovated a school, purchase scholastic materials and train parents in income-generating activities for the purpose of project sustainability.


KEA Green Hill Educational Centre (KEA GHEC) was established in 2004 at the hill with the mango trees to carry in Kasejjere village. Before the establishment of the school, the nearest primary school was at a distance of seven kilometers, the school has reduced the distance the children walk to school, which makes education more accessible. On top of that, the school is open for all children; including those who are orphans and vulnerable families who cannot afford to pay school fees. The school reached 250 pupil but the number dropped to 150 as per now due to financial problems, it started with three primary classes (P1-P3) with a total number of 53 pupils among them 25 were orphans (11girls and 14boys), but expanded to full primary .


The community of Kasejjere under Kikandwa Environmental Association identified illiteracy and semi-illiteracy as the main big problem hindering development and creating chronic poverty in Kikandwa sub-county particularly in Bambula parish were children between 5 and 14 years were either illiterate or semi-illiterate due to dropping out of school at an early age, the majority used to begin schooling late and dropped out before completing primary seven due to chronic poverty in the area.

The goal to achieve the community strategic plan was to contribute to the attainment of Sustainable Development Goals. To pursue this goal the organization has a vision of, rural Communities in Uganda where people live with dignity and in harmony with each other, their Environment and God” Towards this vision the organization mission is “…To develop capacities and capabilities of young children targeting rural communities in partnership with all people of good will so as to be effective and efficient agents in the promotion of education in Kasejjere community.


KEAGHEC is strongly focused on a participatory results and has therefore adopted tools to strengthens impact of change beneficiaries not only in the determination of desired changes but also in the monitoring and evaluation of the change progress that was able to acquire knowledge and skill on the

We are constructing a permanent structure for the school but we cannot afford to complete the work without your effort, therefore we are requesting our donors to link and recommend us to Donor foundation and funding institution which can build us permanent structures for the school.


Happy Celebrated Easter of our risen Lord Jesus Christ

Holiday Season

The Holiday season is here and we at KEACIRC would first and foremost like to wish all our esteemed donors happy holidays.

At the center we are now starting our holiday programs after a long school period and we are targeting holiday makers and students during this festive season. Many students are now enrolling for the holiday programs slated to start after the Christmas session.

Most of our staff are busy visiting homes looking to recruit new students to be trained in ICT and most parents have now seen the value of attaining basic training through our center.

All computers have been upgraded to meet new technology needs and this was done by the ICT manager. The resource center will also be used a venue to recruit farmers to join the Eco system Based Adaptation for Food security Assembly in Kikandwa sub county since out director is now the advisor of the assembly.

Here farmers will be trained on how to adapt to the ever changing weather pattern making them resilient to the effects of climate change. This is necessary and is critical as leaders at the COP21 have guidelines to move away from fossil fuels to adopt renewable energy sources of energy.

We thank all of you who have stood by this all this time long.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

IMPACTING SOCIETY AT LARGE

KEACIRC is thrilled to proclaim that our former graduate Nakitto Betty and the head of ICT at the resource center Mr. Seruzi Alexander are concluding the water and sanitation hygiene project that was funded by The Pollination Project. Kasejjere community had only one water access point that is a spring well that was serving the whole community. This is no longer the case as the community hand dug well is now fully operational.

It has made an instant impact in society as it has saved women and children from the daunting task of traveling almost 1 km to and fro to fetch water downhill which was not very safe for domestic use. Several workshops and meetings have been held to sensitize people about water and environmental resources management issues, improved personal hygiene behaviour, domestic and environmental sanitation practices focusing on children and women through increased and improved access to quantity and quality water supply and sanitation infrastructures.

The management of the resource center takes pride in their initiative to avail safe water and improve sanitation practices in the village; “it’s great to see that they (Nakitto and Alex) are shifting from their professional fields of study to focus on community development issues. We thank you for the gift of the new well and request that you identify more pressing issues in the community to address.” remarked one of the workshop participants.

 

CHALLENGES

Although the management of the resource center successfully managed to construct new premises for KEA CIRC, we are still faced with a challenge of installing an electricity connection at the premises. This has halted almost the services we used to provide at the center. We are tirelessly working had to get are a connection to electricity but are still financially challenged. We continuously call on you our beloved donors to help the resource center get access to electricity.

In conclusion, we also like to thank the management of Global giving that is continuously giving us a platform to reach out to the community through various projects that we have implemented on ground.
