6th Grade Uganda Students Back to School - October

6th Grade Girls: Back to School Being Safe w/Masks
6th Grade Girls: Back to School Being Safe w/Masks

We're excited that our Agwata school 6th graders have been back in school since October!

In October, the Ugandan government allowed students in "candidate classes" to go back to school and begin a time of intensive study for their year-end national exams which are now scheduled for late March 2021.

"Candidate classes" means that 6th, 10th and 12th grade students as well as university and vocational students in their final year can go back to classes. We hope that within the next month or two more if not all students will be back in school.  It is extremely difficult for young students especially, to study from printed materials at home.

Currently, there are 44 6th graders boarding at the Agwata school. Twenty-five of these students are girls. They are studying hard to make up for five missed months of school. We also have quite a few sponsored students in 10th and 12th grade and even university that are back in school now.

This is hugely good and everyone is glad to see girls back in school. We are concerned that when they are out of school, they may become overburdened with farming and housework and loose their focus. Or worse, go astray and become pregnant.  At least with our 6th graders, this has not been the case. All but one returned back to school.

That is why, as we mentioned in our prior letters to you, we have been meeting with the girls periodically to help keep them motivated and focused on schooling and their goals in life.  We will continue to do this until everyone is back in school.

We thank you for your continued interest and support of our project during these difficult times. It makes a huge differene! Your support helps us make sure more girls stay in school and remain focused on their goals.

We are very grateful!
