Mental Health Support for Primary school girls

Psycho-education program with girls
Psycho-education program with girls

The launch of our Mental Health Support program for primary school children of Amorwongora Primary school in Katakwi district has seen an increased number of children become active in class, their grades are improving and class attendance is regular now than before. A few  who had resorted to drug abuse in school have since trasnformed and are now well disciplined children.

The Headteacher of Amorwongora Primary School in a remote village of Katakwi district approached us with a cry of increased number of children in her school who are in-disciplined, enage in drug abuse even while at school and generally living reckless lives accroding to her. Our volunteer Counselor with the technical guidance of the Executive Director (Mr. David Elungat), initiated a pyscho-educational and rehabilitation program that targeted boys and girls differently. The school has allowed the staff to meet the small groups of children once a week for one hour where different apects of adolescence are shared. Through interractions with these children, safe space and mutual trust has been built where the boys and girls are able to share their idnividual challenges and the team is walking with each child/student individually through a process of healing and rehabilitation.

Through your generosity, we are able to expand our mental health program to schools, bringing hope, healing and restoration to traumatised children who often have no one to trust and share their pain and struggles.
