Warm hello from the entire SCOEN team! Greetings to all our family of dedicated donor's, thank you for your continued support to the most vulnerable communities and disadvantaged households in Uganda and thank you for the continued generosity in seeing this project is a success.

Unfortunately, at the time of making this report, we have not yet raised funds to allow us finish up with the construction process, we the local government is stepping in to contribute 40% of the required funds. Once we the funds are realised, we shall give a comprehensive report and progress in the next three months. Onsite we have over 8,000 pieces of bricks, 5 trips of sand and availability of about 60bags of cement.

 

We still ask for your kind support to accomplish these works.

 

Thank you

Unfortunately, at the time of making this report, we have not yet raised funds to allow us continue with the construction process. Once we the funds are realised, we shall give a comprehensive report and progress in the next three months.

The project is running on time and on budget. SCOEN staff on the ground have been happy with the progress, and with the quality of the work so far. However due o the flood that have hit the area all the roads to Acomai have been cut off for the las 4 months our active have posed a little on construction however we had to provide food items to the victim especially the learners. onsite we have over 8,000 pieces of bricks, 5 trips of sand and availability of about 60bags of cement.

Would you mind foregoing one dinner, a cup of coffee to give this school a classroom block?

Hello GlobalGivers,

Warm hello from Agnes and the entire SCOEN! Thank your for the continued genorosity in seeing this project is a success. 

Currently there are no works yet on our classroom block after laying the foundations. We are short of funds however the parents and caregivers were able to collect some locally available building materials i.e. 8,000 pieces of bricks, 5 trips of sand we want to believe the works shall soon resume once we secure more funds.

The school population is increasing every team, as schools are set to begin for the second term in uganda, the rains have also returned. This will create and alarming situation in the school that lack classrooms.

As schools and the new tern begins we still run to kind people like you!, without you we can not make it alone, we must ensure all students return to the classroom and are given an equal opportunity to learn.


As schools are reopening for second term, Acomai Primary School a public school is lacking classrooms to accommodate and provide conducive learning environment to these rural students.

Dear GlobalGivers,

We bring  you our warm new year greets! Thank your continued genorosity in seeing this project is a success. 

Currently there are no works on our classroom block after laying the foundations. We short of funds however the parent and caregivers were able to collect some locally available building materials i.e. 8,000 pieces of bricks, 5 trips of sand we want to believe the works shall soon resume once we secure more funds.

The school population has trippled after 2 years of being locked down caused by the COVID 19 pandemic.

As schools reopen we still run to kind people like you!, without you we can not make it alone, we must ensure all students return to the classroom and are given an equal opportunity to learn.

This means reaching the most vulnerable, including the 1-in-5 children globally who were already out of school before COVID-19

As schools are reopening, Acomai Primary School a public school is lacking classrooms to accommodate and provide conducive learning environment to these rural students.

Would you mind foregoing one dinner, a cup of coffee to give this school a classroom block?

Your support makes these types of pivots possible in our work, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

The administration of Acomai Primary School in Kamutur sub county in Bukedea district, currently operates in a pit latrine after rainwater washed away the existing structures in the school.

 

Founded by the community in 2008, the government took over the school in 2012 after Bukedea District Local Government posted teachers to the school. The school had an enrolment of close to 1,000 pupils by the time government closed schools in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

However, the school which was operating in temporal structures was recently affected by the heavy rains that swept away the buildings, leaving only the two-stance pit latrine standing in the compound. This prompted the school administration to shift all the office equipment including furniture, school records and textbooks among others to the pit latrine, which is also being used by the community in the neighbourhood.

Stephen Ogaali, the Deputy Head Teacher Acomai Primary School and only staff member found in the school told our reporter that they have written several reports to the district for help but nothing is forthcoming. He explained that several monitoring visits have been conducted at the school by both the local leaders and technical staff at the district.

 

We thank you for your generosity towards helping the acomai community, we appeal for more support in donations. Kindly share with your family and friends this will us reach our goal soon. Thank you 

SCOEN Team
