All of us at Harambee Centre appreciate your continued support for our program in Uganda. Together with our conscientious Ugandan school and community leaders, we are privileged to be able to change lives.
The Headteacher, Stephen Mubiru, writes: “We would like to thank you very much for the efforts to make our science study environment more conducive. What was a dream – having a science lab – is now being realized.”
With recent funding the school purchased furniture, including 25 tables and 50 stools, and many practical items for the physics lab. Funds were also used to buy specific chemicals and apparatus required for the Uganda National Examinations that began in October 2009.
Margret and Prossy, two female students at St. Andrews, wrote on behalf of their class describing the impact of the lab:
“We, as students, have benefited a lot from the science lab. The following are some of the benefits we have gained:
-we have got enough exposure to science equipment
-we have got more practice and the ability to pass practical papers
-we have gained more confidence when writing practical papers
-we have got the morale of offering sciences at ‘A’ level
-we have got exposure to science teachers
We thank our generous donors for their continued support!”
Asante sana, from Harambee Centre as well.
