On Friday, March 20th, Nyaka sent students home to their communities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Although students were going home, their safety and education remain a priority and necessity. Before going home, over 300 bars of soap were distributed amongst Nyaka Primary School, Kutamba Primary School, and Vocational Secondary School students. This soap allows students and their families to wash their hands in order to keep them safe. Along with soap, 644 school packages were sent home with students to help them continue learning for over a month after being sent home.
Since students have been home, Nyaka has implemented a new way of reaching students through radio programs. The first radio program was held on March 24th. Since then, Nyaka has held four live talk shows and had 518 radio announcements aired. The radio program has reached 400,000 people including students and other community members.
