Greetings to all our donors, friends and well wishers. I hope this report finds you well. I am happy to report that after a two year wait, schools in uganda finally reopened on the 10th of January 2022 for the first school term of the year. We are excited about this and are looking forward to taking the project forward.
Whereas we now have clear ground to kick start the project, we are still struggling to get the essential tools to help us start moving forward. We do not have a projector yet, not even one, and the other vital items that would enable us to start small. That side, we have a skeleton team that is engaging the concerned officials and school heads about the project and we will keep you posted on the progress with this.
This project remains imprtant to the organisation and we are keen on implementation if the logistics are obtained. There are so many vulnerable school girls that we need to get the dangers of sugar daddies message to. We are hopeful that with your support, we will be able to achieve our objectives. We thus request you to chip in and support the project. We are open to recieving physical itmes fopr the project if they can be sent directly to our address. Once again, we thank you for your support and pray that you keep safe.
Greetings to you all our donors, friends and well wishers. I hope this report finds you safe. I am sad to report that schools in Uganda remain closed due to the Covid 19 pandemic and as such, we have not been able to do much on the project. The recent presidential address to the nation indicated that schools are set to open in early 2022. As it stands, school going children are at home and it will be two years in January 2022 since many of the children in the country last attended school.
In more depressing news around the current, the local media is awash with stories on increases in teenage pregnancies across the cou8ntry. Whereas this project was intended to create awareness about sugar daddies taking advantage of unsuspecting young school girls through cross generational sex and something for something sex, we have nopt been able to achieve much because our target group is not in the space we hoped to find them.
As a result, the country is headed for a situation where we will have many young/teen mothers some of whom may never get a second chance to go to back to school. Some of these young mothers have become victims of early marriages and ridicule in their communities. While this project might not help the current victims, we are still committed to spreading a positive message of caution once the schools open and if we have the tools and resources to conduct the sessions. It is for this reason that we request for your support for the project. We need to protect the girl child – Together we can.
Our planning was not supported by the elusive nature of the Covid 19 pandemic. Schools in Uganda are partially open and even then, their is a possibility of another lockdown due to the latest strain of Covid 19. Reports indicate that lesser numbers of students reported when schools were partially opened because most families are struggling financially after over a year of the Covid 19 lockdown and curfew allover the country.
We have not been active in any way on this project other than identifying the partners that we think we will be able to work with post covid 19. We are actively reaching out to you our friends and well wishers to support the project as it triesto gain shape. We are sure that it will be very importnant to engage these young school girls on the dangers of sugar daddies at a time when poverty will have drastically affected many householders particularly among low income groups.
We look forward to your continued support to the project. Keep Safe
Warm greetings from Uganda. I hope you are well and keeping safe during this COVID 19 Pandemic. We too are keeping safe. As earlier anticipated in regard to the opening of schools in Uganda, the country remains under partial lockdown and night curfew due to the pandemic. The schools remain closed until further notice although candidate classes were allowed to reopen for the second and third term of the year under strict standard operating procedures. This means that our target group for the Sugar Daddy Awareness Classes is still at home and sadly, there is a likely that many young girls are being taken advantage of during this Pandemic. It is even more worrying that some of these girls may never attend school again should they by bad luck become pregnant or get married off during this COVID 19 pandemic.
As indicated in the last report, we have worked out a guideline that identifies the schools that we will want to engage with and the different stakeholders. We continue to speak out as we try to raise funds to kick start the project as soon as the schools are fully open. It is not going to be an easy task given that we still have not gotten the equipment that to use and the resources to facilitate the exercise. We welcome equipment donations should anyone want to donate like a physical projector, TV set or generator. It is important that we engage the school girls as soon as the schools are open and I am confident that we will achieve this goal with your support.
Finally, I am happy to wish you an early Merry Christmas from Ngoma Aid Foundation and look forward to continue working with you in the New Year 2021. Keep Safe
Greetings to all our donors, friends, and well-wishers. I am happy to present to you the first report of this project. Schools in Uganda have remained closed since mid-March 2020 as a measure put in place to stop the spread of COVID 19. As a result of the school closures, many young girls (and boys) have remained idle and possibly overwhelmed by the COVID 19 stress. The young girls are particularly at constant risk of exposure to teenage pregnancies, early marriage, and being preyed on by sugar daddies.
As a result of the school closures, the project has majorly focused on planning and strategizing as we wait for the schools to open so that we are able to engage the different stakeholders. Sugar Daddy Awareness classes for the young school-going girls remain our major goal although this will only be possible when the schools reopen. The sad reality is that there are different reports that indicate that there is an increase in cases of young girls who are forced to engage in selling sex in return for cash, food, or even sanitary products as a result of the COVID 19 pandemic.
I request that our donors and well-wishers continue to offer support to this project so that we are able to create Sugar Daddy Awareness among young school
