As the COVID-19 cases decline in Uganda, schools are reopening! This is wonderful news for students and teachers alike! Due to the quick pace of the reopening, there was a problem, schools hadn’t collected school fees in a year, and supplies were limited. This is where Changemakers 365 comes in!
Our team worked with the teachers to figure out what they needed to teach their classes. They came up with a list: laptops, projector, projector screen, notebooks for teachers, textbooks, cleaning materials, hand sanitizer, moveable chalkboard, chalk sticks, drawing boards, thermometer gun, and art materials. The team got right to work and went to procure the items for the teachers!
The teachers were delighted to receive the new school supplies! “Most of our students have not yet paid their school fees and that’s means we are not able to provide to the teachers all the necessary equipment’s required for the teaching, with this support the teachers will be able to teach the students well hence improving the learning, and with this computer and projector we shall be able to show our students some online experiments since we don’t have a science lab, therefore, they can experience some practical lessons, thank you Alight for the support.” Said Mr. Mukasa Edmond the headteacher. Great work Changemakers team!
