We at Rego Foundation would like to thank all our Donors and the GlobalGiving Team for believing in our dream and empowering us both financially and socially to make a difference in the lives of several girls living in slums around Kampala. This year, classes resumed on 13th January, 2020.

We moved our classes to The Innovation Village, Kampala where Rego Foundation offices are currently located. We have created impactful relationships and brought onboard two tech companies to better design our curriculum.

Joel Mwanja; Founder and CEO of A23 Labs (https://www.a23labs.com/), a Software Development Company in Uganda, creating digital solutions for social problems; has joined us as the Project Manager and volunteer tutor.

We have also partnered with Mentors Without Borders (https://www.mentorswithoutborders.net/ ); a group Software Engineering Professional with an objective to help underprivileged young people become passionate developers.

Our Mentor, Mr.Parth Pandy (LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/parth-p-859bb29a/)is a software scientist with extensive experience in software development.

We are currently learning how to develop a website using HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language).

Given that most of the students want to build mobile apps to solve their social problems at the end of the course, we shall be learning the following languages to build mobile apps;

  • Android Studio
  • Swift
  • VueJS
  • React Native

 We acquired one new laptop computer and welcomed Matilda to join the class making it five (5) girls in total.

We look forward to welcoming more girls into the Programme and creating more partnerships. This year, we intend to participate in the Africa Code Week with atleast 15 girls.

 Thank you for your support.

We at Rego Foundation would like to thank all our Donors for believing in our dream and empowering us both financially and socially to make a difference in the lives of several girls living in slums around Kampala. The project kicked off on November 12th, 2019 when our President/Team Leader, Ms Susan and a team of volunteers went to Katoogo to visit and profile the girls selected for the ICT class.

Katoogo is a slum area located in Ggaba, a suburb in Makindye Division, Kampala District; 10km from the city center and about 800 meters from Ggaba landing site on Lake Victoria.  Katoogo slum has approximately 800 temporary houses accommodating an average of 2 adults and 5 children per household. Over 5,000 people live in this community. The population is predominantly youth who have migrated from their villages and moved close to the city center in pursuit of employment opportunities. However, with over 60% unemployment rate, an average person in Katoogo slum earns less than $1 per day. Many cannot afford medical facilities, school fees and survive on one meal a day.

 

Katoogo is located in a swampy area close to Lake Victoria and has many sewer drainage channels flowing between homes with stagnant water that harbors many diseases affecting the locals. The area is characterized by high prevalence of sexual violence, intimate partner violence, drug abuse, HIV/AIDS infection, teenage pregnancies and over 45% of girls between the ages of 7 -15 have either never been to school or have already dropped out of school. 

Selected were Joan, Pauline, Shauaa and Gladys who were registered and invited for the orientation day that took place on 22nd November.

Attachhed is a detailed report of our project.
