Greetings to you all our donors, friends and well wishes. It is always a pleasure to reach out to you and we thank you for your continued support. It has been a pretty tough to years as a result of the covid 19 pandemic disruptions and more specifically it has been a challenging year 2021 so far. Never the less, the children are still in good health and we have had some relative peace on several fronts.
On a good note, I am happy to report that Isaac and Natasha passed their Primary Leaving and Ordinary Level examinations respectively. Isaac will be joining secondary school whereas Natasha qualifies to continue to High School or branch off for a certificate course in either teaching or nursing. It would be wise for each of them to continue with formal education.
On a sad note, I would like to report that schools in Uganda have been and remain closed due to the pandemic for close to two years now. The recent presidential address indicated that schools might reopen in January 2022. Other than Isaac and Natasha, none of the other children will have been to school for two years when they reopen in January 2022. While we acknowledge that alot of school time has been lost and given the psychological implications this might cause to the children in the short and long term, our focus during this pandemic has been on equipping the children with other home/social skills. The children have been busy in the garden, done house chores such as cooking, cleaning etc. We were unable to enrol them to the much hyped online studies in this country where the biggest percentage of the population does not have access to electricity and gadgets like a computer. Yes we did not have the tools and data later on the dues to facilitate the inline studies and we are hoping that they will start school as soon as schools are open for all the children countrywide.
Our focus at the moment is to try and live out the reminder iof 2021 in terms of food provision and other household requirements that make our work possible. Most importantly. we are working hard to ensure that we are able to raise the school fees and scholastic materials required to send the children back to school in early 2021. We will need the household provisions flowing too and it is on this note that we request for your continued support as we continue to shape the future of the project beneficiaries. Thank you always.
