This year 2020, Tusaidiane Uganda Book Fund targeted 5 schools across the country including a learning centre for the disabled. TUL received applications from these schools for textbooks, learning materials, music instruments for kids with special needs and two printers for printing learning material for going door to door to teach students and distribute learning materials during this COVID 19 lockdown on schools. The schools are usually contributing a percentage of the money required for the project but this year they could not contribute anything because of the effects of COVID 19 on the school finances hence it was a fully funded project . The schools that benefited from this years TUL Book fund included; Kirowooza Primary School- text books, Rushongyi Primary School- text books, Kirawula Primary School- Printer, Mirembe Kindergarten- textbooks and music instruments, Support Disabled Children Ggaba- music instruments and Kalibbala Memorial- Printer. The books were delivered by the MD, TUL Miss Sharifa Nabaweesi together with the Chair man TUL Board, Mr. Kees Ebskamp. The beneficiaries were very grateful for the donations received from Tusaidiane Uganda.
The TUL Book Fund 2020, is one of the major interventions and responses of Tusaidiane Uganda towards curbing down the negative effects of COVID 19 on schools and the education system in Uganda. Teachers can now use the text books to get information for teaching the students who are at home. Tusaidiane Uganda is grateful to donors; CONGRAVA, Netherlands and The Tusaidiane Trust, Uganda for partnering with them on this project.
