On behalf of The African SOUP, I would like to thank you for the support you have provided to make our community programs possible. As part of our comitment to report our successes and challenges, we have outlined some details of our work. We have broken down the major activities from our Demonstration Nursery and Primary School, Secondary Enrichment Program, and Emma’s Baby SOUP below.
The African SOUP Nursery and Primary School
We are currently educating 90 nursery students and 357 primary students for a total enrollment of 457 students each year.
We have created an active learning observation tool to use in classrooms, with teachers being observed, assessed, and coached on their performance at least two times per term by our Active Learning Project Director.
A child protection consultant was invited to The SOUP in July 2019 to assess existing child safeguarding policies and make recommendations to ensure our child safeguarding policies are in place and implemented at the highest standards.
120 students are currently receiving a full scholarship to attend SOUP Nursery and Primary School.
78 children went on a field trip to the educational agricultural show in Jinja, Uganda in July 2019 where they learned about different crops, farming techniques, business, and entrepreneurial skills.
African Soup Primary School emerged the 5th out of 320 schools in the district in the 2018 Primary Leaving Examinations. We registered a 100% pass rate.
Secondary Enrichment Program
In 2019, 52 SEP scholars reported to their respective secondary schools, with all scholars receiving between 70%-100% of school fees paid through scholarship or SOUP sponsorship.
All 52 scholars were visited at their respective schools by the social worker to assess their progress in academics and leadership opportunities.
48 SEP scholars participated in our week-long enrichment program in September 2019.
Emma’s Baby SOUP
50 families are being served annually by EBS, including five pregnant women.
There have been two medical outreach sessions each month since the start of this project, providing families with medical counseling and referrals, supplemental feedings, seedlings, and education on nutrition, positive parenting, hygiene, and disease prevention.
We are so grateful for your support of The African SOUP and Nabikabala village. As we move forward through the rest of the year, we will continue to provide high quality, holistic services through our community programs by focusing on teacher and staff development, capital improvements, agricultural programs, and the provision of critically needed health and nutrition services for the most vulnerable members of our community. Through comprehensive monitoring and evaluation paired with organizational learning, our efficiency and effectiveness continue to grow. All of these efforts will require financial resources to ensure their success and we are so thankful for your support.
