Academic progress being made at Okoboi PS, Uganda




Dear Friends,


Happy New Year to you all.

Greetings from the staff and entire community of Ngora-Okoboi P/S.

We ended last year well and we have just received the Primary Seven
National Examinations results. The performance of our school was good as
compared to the previous years. This year’s performance was as follows: DIV I
-1; DIV II – 14; DIV III – 18; DIV IV – 2. All the pupils from DIV I to DIV III
will be able to join Secondary schools. Only those in DIV IV and those whose
parents/guardians cannot afford fees will not be able to progress in their
academic studies.

Term I of 2013 will start on 4/02/2013, and the best pupils this
year (basing on last term’s promotional performance) are as follows: (see attachment) or

We thank Shashamane for the hope and excitement now implanted in the learners.

Best wishes from us.

Bernadette Ademun.


 Shashamane Sunrise has been selected as one of four charities to take part in the January Education Appeal
of global donor marketplace Global Giving UK. The appeal highlights our effort at Okoboi Primary School in Ngora, Uganda to help reconstruct the school’s dilapidated roof and buildings.  For more information see our Project Page,
Or our website

January is back to school time for many of the children that we support. It is usually a time of great excitement for students as they are keen to share stories of the schools holidays, vacation activities with their families and the gifts and presents they received. For students who live in the rural and inner city communities we serve it can be a time of great anxiety and they struggle to find the necessary school and classroom supplies to start the school term. You can help. Give us two minutes of your time.

Help us promote the Back to School Appeal:


  • Like us on Facebook,Twitter and refer a friend or colleague
  • Make a donation
  • Host a Back To School Fundraiser

During the campaign, everyone who makes a donation of USD$25 or more will receive a Shash Tee. Additionally, if you host your own Shashamane Sunrise Fundraiser, one lucky person will be eligible to receive a roundtrip ticket to one of our Shash Tours during the year. For more information e-mail:

The current schedule for the Shash Service Tours is:


  • ShashT&T: 23-30 Jun
  • ShashJAM: 1-7 Jul
  • ShashUGX: 18-24 Aug  
  • ShashKEN: 25-31 Aug
  • ShashETH: 1-14 Sep
  • ShashHTI: 27 Nov - 1

We are seeking volunteers for your Shash Service Tours. Spaces can be booked through our website.
Deposits are due by March 2013 but spaces are limited so reserve your spots early. It is a travel and volunteer experience like no other.
