COVID-19 Response

Dear SOUP supporters,

Sending you all thoughts, well wishes, and love at this challenging time. Families around the globe are facing hardships now more than ever, and we deeply appreciate your support. 
In order to mitigate the tremendous challenges faced by our SOUP community, we have taken the following steps to support our families and students:
  • All students were sent home with their families on Friday, March 20 in accordance with government regulations
  • Families were sent home with food rations and sanitizing materials and will be provided with additional nutritional resources in the coming weeks
  • Students, families, and staff were educated on COVID-19, its spread, and how to take protective measures including proper hand-washing and social distancing
  • Our office has instituted a work from home policy and teachers were allowed to travel to their home village before public transportation was suspended
  • We distributed food, sanitizing materials, and some academic work to 265 families on April 3 and April 16. We will continue to do so a t least two times per month for the duration of the COVID-19 response period. 
I want to thank you so much for your continued support as we monitor the situation in Uganda, and adjust our services to ensure our families are protected. Over the next few months, we will be refining the Active Learning curriculum, and considering ways to reach teachers and students in new and creative ways. Our community programs will be providing additional nutrition services, fresh drinking water, health counseling and education, and other small support services as needed. We are also protecting our employees' health and finances while asking them to shift their responsibilities to meet our community's evolving needs but continuing to pay salaries during this time.
Please know that your efforts have allowed us to grow to where we are today, and we are so grateful. 
In solidarity,
Jill Kuhn
