School Update from Uganda

Your students in Uganda are in the second term of school, half-way through the school year. The children are learning different things according to grade level.

Primary One is learning about weather, accidents, numbers and graphs, social relationships, and nutrition. Primary Two is covering the environment, plants and animals, transportation, and how people use materials found in the environment to make objects that people use at home.

The older children are writing about issues faced in their community. They wrote about the pressure to drop out of school, early or forced marriage, poor sanitation and hygiene, and government programs with unintended consequences. The story you see below is about a program that intended to clean up the community – but many here lost their source of income in the process.
