The Training of VHTs has resumed

We are pleased to annouce that after the ease in the lockdown in Uganda. Our partner, Kyaninga Child Development Centre has complete the training of 60 VHTs on Part 2 of the programme. The training went really well with some great engagement. We are now moving into the mentoring stage, the VHT's are armed with their child profile forms and we plan to follow up with them monthly.

After the training 60 VHTs early this year in Uganda on part 1 of the programme, the training was paused due to the curfew in the region. We worked with our partner throughout this time to ensure ways of resuming the training as soon as the situation improves.

During this time, KCDC managed to see families with children with special needs but the numbers were reduced, they prioritised the most vulnerable and malnourished children. 

KCDC planned on starting phase 2 training (How to work with Children with Developmental Disabilities) on 30th September in Fort Portal. They resumed the training with 15-20 Village Health Workers to understand how the plans progressed with COVID and restrictions.

Our partners in Uganda have identified the need to get the training resources translated into Rutooro and Lukonzo which has already started.
