Happy New Year!
The Kasiisi Project was busy in 2016! We look forward to another successful year in 2017 !
In 2016, the Kasiisi Project continued their mobile health care clinic, where we provide 2-3 members of our staff as clinical officers - a nurse, a medical officer and a lab technician - 2 days a week to the Kibale National Park Uganda Wildlife Authority Mobile Clinic. The clinic delivers health care to villages around Kibale National Park, which are far from other medical resources.
We have also completed 5 blocks of girl friendly latrines with washrooms at 4 Kasiisi project Schools – Kiamara, Kasenda, Iruhuura and Nyabweya Primary School.
Lastly, the Kasiisi School Dormitory, which opened in February 2014 with 8 girls is continuing to grow. By September 2016 the number of current boarders numbered 77 – approximately 2/3 girls. Boarding facilities provide students with more study time, regular food, academic support and tutoring resulting in much better exam results than day students.
We hope to keep up the momentum in 2017! Thank you for all your donations
