The five in senior four have been fully paid (fees, extra lessons, purchase of school bus) each student at 385,100Ugx totaling to 1,955,500Ugx for five students including 30,000Ugx for administrative costs. Only candidates have resumed school. Semi-candidates (primary six, senior three and senior five) will resume on 1st March 2021 while other classes including senior one will resume on 19th April 2021.
We are still in fear of visiting our people (nodding syndrome patients) in the villages due to Covid 19, there is no gathering.
Mentors will be visiting the five O’ level candidates at St. Bhakita Girls School to follow up on their performance.
We kindly request for timely release of funds to avoid disturbance of the students in the next academic term.
We wish to extend our appreciation to the River Fund team in USA and our donors on the GlobalGiving who are helping the River Fund members in Kitgum district to make it possible to help the needy girls’ education and nodding syndrome patients.
