Follow this link to donate: https://www.every.org/ytbglobal/f/rebuild-our-rural-school

Mother Erinah Junior School experienced a very heavy and strong storm which destroyed some of the classroom structures. Good enough, children are on holiday apart from a few who turn up to complete writing letters to their friends.

Children will report back for their second academic term on 09th May 2022 and it is on this note that we call for your possible support to enable us put up temporary structures where they can continue with their classes.

Thank you and we look forward to hear from you very soon.

Help Mother Erinah Junior School with Desks, etc

Today we captured this VIDEO while a class was going on at Mother Erinah Juniour School ( found in Bunakijja Village, Ntenjeru Sub-County, Uganda) . During covid19 local down, termites destroyed almost all the wooden classrooms and when schools opened this month, the school had no enough classrooms for a very big turnup of children reporting for their first academic term. With no clear option, we used plastic sheets to make a temporary roof to make sure that children continue with classes though still not very safe when it rains.

This is a community primary school with a total of 295 pupils as of today 02Febuary2022. This school is in need of: (1) Desks for pupils to sit on (each desk which accommodates 3 pupils costs $80), (2) Classroom construction support, and (3) Scholastic materials.

Progress on Classroom Block Construction at Mother Erinah Junior School

My name is Robert Kibaya, a Ugandan, an Executive Director of Kikandwa Rural Communities Development Organization and current Executive Chairperson of Mukono District NGO Forum (MUDINFO) of over 150 organizations.

I remember, it was on the evening of 21 October, 2019 when I received a call from a friend requesting me in my capacity as the head of the District NGO Forum to accept to be the chief guest during the briefing ceremony of the Primary Seven (P.7) pupils of Mother Erinah Junior School. The last class for primary education level in Uganda is Primary Seven and it is at this level that qualified pupils sit for their National Primary Leaving Education (PLE).

At around 14:00 on 25th October, 2019, I made it to Mother Erinah Junior School with some scholastic materials to give out to P.7 pupils as per this LINK indicates:

What I saw at Mother Erinah Junior School, was so amazing and I realized that it was very difficult for them to get a high-profile figure to be a chief guest as most of them prefer to associate with well established schools for media coverage. I could not believe the school had over 170 pupils without proper classrooms as you can see:

When I secretly asked some parents why they preferred the school to others, they gave me the following reasons:

  1. -The school was the best in Bunakijja Parish during 2018 National Primary Leaving Examination.
  2. -The school is managed by qualified and hardworking teachers.
  3. -The school management relates well with the parents and it serves the needs of the poor children.

It was a very touching experience and when I came back, I decided to reach-out to some friends for assistance towards classroom construction at Mother Erinah Junior School. It took me again some months before a friend in Austin Texas under Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church mobilized some funds which we utilized to construct a classroom block up to this level below.

Lastly, more financial support is still needed to have this work done and we call on for your great assistance at this critical moment. In case you have anything to offer, please get in contact with me at: robkib@gmail.com

Thank you

Schools like this are never visited by high profile figures so we take the opportunity to do so and encourage children to stay focused and never to give up with their education.

Last Friday, we had good time at Mother Erinah Junior School as we wished children success in their upcoming national exams.

As you can see, we need shoes, scholastic material and infrastructure development support. Remember, this was the best school at last year’s National Primary Leaving Examination in Bunakijja Parish, Mukono District, Uganda.

None of the Students of Amudat Secondary School in Karamoja of over 400 students has an email address

DSC06379Today we have been able to train Amudat Secondary School Students how to signup and operate personal email accounts. A School of over 400 students, none of them has an email address. Though there some computers, students have no access as all computers broke down and there is no technician in the area to help them. This school is found in Karamoja which is over 400 miles from Kampala Capital city (Capital of Uganda). This is mostly a pastoral community and the only way this community can be helped is to be connected to the world wide web. Good enough, there is both G3 and G4 Internet network.
