Back to School

In Uganda, Schools were closed for almost two years in response to curb to the spread of covid-19.Many learners have been stuck at home without access to online learning and study materials.

On the 10th of January, a sigh of relief engulfed parents, teachers and learners as schools officially reopened nationwide but this wasn’t the case for internally displaced persons who were affected by floods in May 2020.

Muhokya Internally displaced peoples camp is currently the biggest camp in Kasese District, western Uganda with 300 Households residing in the camp, who are predominantly women and Children. The flash floods destroyed schools, hospitals, gardens and homes.

“My Children have not gone to school because we do not even have books and pens for them, I thank the well wishers for providing books to the children in Kindergarten but the older children do not have what to use”, Parent.

Households lost their livelihoods and it is very challenging to support their families, Children are seen loitering in the camp with hardly any shoes and clothing to wear and no hope of returning to school.

“Children are going back to school but the situation in this camp is not good at all, no books, pens and other scholastic materials”, she adds

The camp chairperson, Rehema says only the children in lower primary have returned to school, others have not yet joined school because they do not have scholastic materials and even the distance from the camp to the government aided schools is very long.

“Those in higher classes are not sure of what is going to happen next “she says.

Our campaign is still running and we request you our dear Donor to support our cause and support 500 children return to school.

$10 can buy a dozen of exercise books,$15 can buy a school bag,$5 can buy a dozen of pencils and $20 can buy a school uniform.
