After nearly a year of closures, the Ugandan government has announced the re-opening of schools. It will be a scattered reopening to ensure that the infection rate doesn't dramatically increase. March 1st will see the first round of children returning, followed by another group in April.
While this is great news for the children, it's even better for their mothers. Many children in the Acholi Quarter attend boarding schools through sponsored programs, which reduces the number of mouths to feed within a home. For the past year, mothers have desperately searched for the means to feed all of their children.
We hope that by late spring, the need for food security will be reduced and we will be able to return to focusing on our education priorities within the Quarter.
