News from Uganda
Uganda is still corona closed
The country's government has decided that schools and educational institutions will continue to be closed until the end of August in the first instance, after which any possibilities for a health-sound reopening will be considered.
At the same time, the airport in Entebbe is closed, and the entire hotel and tourism industry in the country is down financially. The popular means of transport - the so-called boda bodas (taxi mopeds) are now allowed to drive with passengers. This is of very good and positive for many families, where the husband again has the opportunity to earn a daily wage for the family's upkeep.
The orphanage construction
At the new orphanage "Emmanuel 2" the outer walls have been finished, and the building now looks nice and as good as the orphanage Emmanuel 1. We have just received a good donation from a sponsor with 12000 danish kroner, - so now we can furnish the orphanage's living room and buy utensils for the kitchen. We are very grateful for that!
The Emmanuel orphanages
The UCC home school
We have now distributed school books to all primary school children (0-7 class) and we are all in with home schooling. Our school teachers meet with the children either at home or at "hotspots" in the local area to follow up on the children's school work.
Home schooling in Uganda
We have also come up with a good plan for the students in secondary (8-12 class) Here we have just hired 2 high school teachers and together with one of our social workers they will run home schooling from next week. The young people are given all books (physics, mathematics, physics / chemistry, biology and geography) for each of their grade levels and a roadmap for their studies which is prepared by our newly hired teachers.
The teachers will be available by telephone to the young people on a daily basis and will meet with them as needed.
Homeschooling in this way is something new that has never been tried in Uganda before, so we will continuously evaluate the process with the teachers, so that it can be really good.
