In rural communities it’s not common that children find free modern play equipment’s to play, learn and have fun! It’s in such places that the Center for Youth Driven Development Initiatives provides a platform where community children come to learn in a formal and non-formal setting, play and have fun! This opportunity has encouraged and increased the number of children who come and interact with books at the community library hence increasing on the attraction of children to read and master the art. A total of over 60 children have been enrolled on the education program that would otherwise be out of formal school. Every support towards keeping girls and boys in schools is what will change and build a better world for all and not making education possible only for the privileged class. Reading, writing, play clubs have been performed and talent development groups come to practice and nature the talent of each other here at the centre. Children parties are held to encourage them to study and learn while the skill of art is development through sports and games. This will go a long way to prepare rural children for a brighter future through taping into their personal natured talents while very young.

We started the community education programme at a very basic level. many children supposed to be in school spent an entire time at the community library. in ndazabazadde community and its sorrounding indigenous people are so poverty ridden. many unemployed housewives, youth, high teenage pregnancy, high school drop out and crime rate. so we felt something should be done. now with 67 children on program much is required to offer them atleast seven years of completing primary education.

classrooms and fafcilitating their teachers, scholastic materials all requires financing to deliver. the fortunate thing is that we have started and we want to sustain it and break the cycle of rural poverty and ignorance.

alder children who started school late can write and read. they are the reason parents wants us to push them until primary seven. we thought we would offer only six years . three for baby, middle and top class and then the other until lower primary in primary three.  but the demand is high and we are ready to take up the challenge but we need you to join our community effort friends.

we are hopeful that the education project we have developed are sustained and carried forward from one generation to another.

lets support to keep rural impoverished community children attend formal school and learn to read, write and successed. thank you so much.

Friends, choosing to participate in a loving response is the most biggest investment you have offered this world.
In every small act of kindness, in a loving thought you help rural community children thrive.
And this can be done in any job or profession that provides services in society. So, whatever we do – if we see it as a means to create a better world and we practice love of neighbor through our work - whether we are business people, bankers, a lawyer, a teacher, an engineer... we are helping to manifest a service that makes a better world for all.This is who you are.

children at the early learning centre. previously for the past two years have been studying in the community librat. and these have been two classes in one room partitioned by bookshelves. the community library has been only available for use in the evening and only on weekends and now with such provision made possible now the community libray is avalable to community uses.


In our work we have identified 5 needs that we would like all of our members to support us grow and we are often making a difference where it is needed most. These are:


1) Increasing children enrollment into Early learning and primary education especially the girls out of school and those who have failed to get enrolled.
2) Establish a 7 block classroom infrastructures for learners to study
3) Support fund the implementation of learner’s skills builders’ framework to explicitly build vital skills needed in the ideal world to thrive.
4) Facilitate teachers to transform the essential skills to learners
5) Procure classroom resources for teachers and learners

With your support we invested most in establishing two study rooms for build essential skills.


Ensuring that slum children and youth are enrolled and trained with essential skills they will thrive. We serve in deprived communities and slum areas here in Ndazabazadde in in fishing communities. In slum and fishing communities the story is not so different. Education for girls is not given any priority, high teenage pregnancy, high school drop outs due to financial hardships, teenage motherhood on the rise, early marriages; high economic dependency rate and the health consequences there are high HIV transition.


Therefore to try and overturn this crisis, it starts with enrolling children in school, Implementing the Skills Builder Programs for youth and to Training and Support teachers to reach out to the most deprived communities and learners.
We’re deeply grateful for the support of our ever-growing network of persons supporting us through GlobalGiving.


Bring others with you!
Never forget that all successes you see here is because of your team effort. CFYDDI would be nothing without your support. No one can achieve any meaningful social impact at scale without the support, collaboration and hard work of a lot of partners.


Together, we can see our work making a real impact.
We need your support to keep delivering quality community service and offer educational opportunities for deprived personalities. Every contribution, big or small, is so valuable. Support the Centre for Youth driven development initiatives from as little as $10.
Thank you.

210 slum Ndazabazadde children are in desperate need to attend some form of formal school.  To start a community school was not CFYDDI original Plan!! but resulting from the community needs, we got started.

 In 2016, there was a raising concern where may children about 25 of them that were meant to be in school spent school time at the library and attending the children's reading club yet they where supposed to be in school. this prompted us to invite their parents for a community meeting. the biggest challenge was that the children where orphans  living with grand parents and others where staying with single mothers while others where children by teenage mothers who where unemployed and uneducated. to cut the long story short, the community members requested that we organize and hire a person to teach the children while at the library. since the community centre had a conference hall we started by sub-dividing the conference hall into two and this served as classrooms for two classes and with this community need to keep children in a formal setting and study we started CFYDDI- Early learning centre. and we have 72 children enrolled and each year we add a class after promotion and now  the two classes are conducted inside the community library and still oothers in the conference hall. 

we can at the moment handle the number of 72 children but currently with the growing number of community learners calls for establishing of a class room block with 7 rooms to atleast offer primary education for all. 

such a possibility to establish class room blocks will keep and enable more children studying, enable library users use the community library and also have the conference hall available for continued community workshops, training, skilling and community groups meetings that is currently being used for learning. 

Lets join efforts that will empower community children for a possible future.

sincerely,

Every day, we see the fruits of your labor in the transitional project development stages here at https://www.globalgiving.org/dy/v2/pe/progress-report/new.html?project.projId=32505.

and we remain proud of your contribution to the global effort to bring about community development for all and especially in resource constrained communities to Sponsor a child to go to pre-school in Uganda (32505)

.

With the end of the year in sight, it’s natural to reflect on what you have helped us accomplish during the past 12 months—to gauge how we have been of service and chart the impact your efforts continue to bring in rural communities.

 

  • We enrolled 70 community children on the Community Early learning program at CFYDDI resource center on half scholarships.
  • Through our partners we have a total of 24 children under Education sponsorship program on full bursaries.
  • Teachers and children care takers study materials have been sufficient been provided to making learning possible.
  • We have bought indoor play items for children for the first time that will be part of CFYDDI Community Play ground.
  • We have celebrated the first Christmas carols for the children and children have experienced an amazing fun in life!
  • We conducted a one day school free dental health awareness program and distributed to each child a free tooth brush and toothpaste through our annual visiting dentist to the centre.

We have urgent work ahead of us more than ever!

Friends with such community engagements, activities numbers keep growing, there is an urgent need to expand. Every coin counts!!! We have bought the land, we need to establish a 7 block classroom for the growing learners population and housing for teachers such that we stop inconveniencing library users and youth and children community activities at the conference hall which is subdivided to act as classrooms. We invite you to help us do more in 2019 and we continue to change the future of rural community children, youth women and girls who need it most.

We are committed to continuing this compassionate, world-changing work for many years to come together and pass it over to the next generation after us.

We wish you all a restful holiday period and a successful, meaningful new year full of vibrant possibilities ahead, and we continue to thank you for your continuing support and partnership in Harnessing the Demographic Dividends through Investment in Rural children.

Sincerely,

Enoch Magala
