Thanks to a special Kibale Forest Schools’ Program summer volunteer the girls at Kasiisi Primary School are becoming expert bare foot soccer players! In general, soccer is not a game that girls play in Uganda. Rural girls usually play netball – a forerunner of basket ball. However, as a result of regular coaching this summer, the Kasiisi Girls’ Soccer Team competed at the Sub-County level in 2016 for the first time – their first match was August 12th. We are so proud of the Kasiisi girls for giving soccer a try !
Additionally, this summer Kasiisi Primary School hosted a parents day! Boy and girl scouts showed off their activities, building fuel efficient, low emission stoves and camp shelters, and the Kasiisi Project Health Team demonstrated RUMPS (re-useable menstrual pads), tippy-taps for hand washing , dish racks for safe drying of eating utensils and storage of food, and small gardens designed for more intensive agriculture. As always the school and parents expressed their gratitude for everything that generous donors to the Kasiisi Project have done to improve their school.
