Summary

TOUCH Program is improving the lives of children in Kitintale, on the outskirts of Kampala, Uganda. In this urban slum area, most parents and guardians cannot raise funds to send their children to school. TOUCH is providing education, supplies, and two daily meals to over 500 children. Our school, Calvary Primary, is badly in need of desks & chairs to replace the very old and dangerous ones now in use.

Challenge

We are providing education for 500 children, but there are not enough desks. Students sit 4 to 6 per desk, when desks are only designed for up to three students. This makes for distractions, fights, and poor performance. Secondly, the desks we have are dangerous. Their joints are loose and some have nails and splitting wood that can cut the children. The desks are wobbly and collapse, leading to classroom disruption and injury.

Solution

By providing new desks, the learning environment and safety for students will be greatly improved. Students will not be jostling for space on a rickety bench. They won't be cut by nails or hurt when a desk breaks.

Long-Term Impact

All 500 students at Calvary Primary will have a safe place to sit and complete their assignments. We expect performance, discipline, and learning to improve. The children are eager to learn, and when they are given that chance, they do well, working to better themselves and their situation.
