Through the TUL BOOK FUND, Tusaidiane Uganda donated textbooks to Bwanda Parents and Rwoya Primary Schools in Rukungiri district in Western Uganda. The text books were picked from the TUL office in Bunga by the project coordinators of both schools (Mr. Natuhwera Vanansio and Mr Pius Tumwine) together with the Rukungiri District Woman MP, Hon. Medius Natukunda Kaharata.
The project coordinators of both schools delivered the textbooks to the beneficiaries who were very happy to receive them. The books will help to improve learning and teaching at the schools when schools re-open after the COVID 19 lockdown on schools and beyond.
Tusaidiane Uganda would like to thank CONGRAVA and Stichting Mirembe from the Netherlands for donating funds towards this project.
Please see an attached pictorial and narrative report of the happy teachers and students receiving the text books.

In this year 2020, following the corona lockdown on schools, Tusaidiane Uganda through their Book Fund targeted 5 schools and a learning centre for the disabled. The schools were spread around the country. TUL received applications from these schools for textbooks, learning materials, music instruments and printers to help the teachers go door to door to teach their students and distribute learning materials to the children who are currently at home. Four schools have already received their text books and learning materials.
On Friday 18th 12 2020 and Monday 21st 12.2020, a team from Tusaidiane Uganda visited Support Disabled Children Ggaba (learning centre for the disabled) and Mirembe Infant School, Bulenga respectively for delivering the donations. The learning centre for the disabled received music instruments which made the children very excited with the donation. Mirembe Infant School received music instruments and textbooks and they were also grateful.

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.
