2021 KACHICA COMMUNITY FOOD RELIEF

The KACHICA community is among one of the lucky communities to receive food relief during the second lockdown following the intervention of Tusaidiane. Mirembe Foundation and several donors through the Tusaidiane Trust contributed to the relief fund.

The food was procured from Kampala and delivered to the school where it was packed and distributed to the community. This time the Women Group (Kyabibwa Women Group) were in the driver seat of packing the food items, selecting the neediest families and distributing the food items. 280 families benefited from the relief aid. It was heaven sent relief since life has never been the same from the first lockdown.

The community was in dire need as their trade of cattle had been stopped by the government because of the foot and mouth disease.

 With the  KACHICA community water and the soap that was distributed, there is hope that the prevention of COVID will be carried out. The KACHICA leadership took it on to themselves to sensitize the community about the virus and wearing a mask.  

KACHICA also received funds for assisting the pupils with printing materials for home learning. This has already started; so far 2 classes (P6 and P5) have received their take homework and the teachers are visiting them and assessing the homework which keeps the pupils engaged with school work and cope with the lockdown.

The KACHICA community and Tusaidiane Uganda would like to thank everyone who contributed to this noble cause.

20201112 Status Implementation KACHICA Action Plan 2020

 

ST. FRANCIS LITTLE BIRDS AND KAMULI CHILD CARE, RAKAI SET TO RE-OPEN AFTER FULFILLING ALL THE GOVERNMENT COVID 19 SOPs.

After a period of 7months lockdown on schools, the President of Uganda re-opened schools for all student finalists across the country on the 15th October 2020 with special guidelines and standard operating procedures that had to be fulfilled and checked by the Ministry before receiving a special certificate to warrant re-opening. The new Standard Operational Procedures (SOPs) for schools include, every school forming a Coronavirus taskforce, daily and timely screening of temperatures of learners, compulsory wearing of face masks by both learners and teachers. The Ministry also wants the creation of isolations rooms at every school, daily disinfection of classroom floors, walls, furniture, toilets using soap and water, restricted access to schools and screening done at school gates. They have set up other SOPs like creation of adequate spaces at schools to accommodate recommended distance, single beds for one student, and keeping 2 meters between beds among others.

However, the SOPs have attracted negative reactions from the Heads of Schools across the Country who pointed out the fact that implementation will be hard or close to impossible because of the failure of government to provide money. One of the key concerns is the continuous hand washing that requires constant supply of water which is lacking in most rural areas. This led to the intervention of Tusaidiane Uganda and the head teachers of St. Francis Little Birds and Kamuli Child Care to apply for funding for buying the requirements from their sponsors and both requests were granted.

SFLBNP and Kamuli Child Care, Rakai bought among other items;  temperature guns, jerry cans for handwashing, sanitiser, soap and the advantage is that flowing water is readily available at the schools. Primary seven students can now happily study at both schools without being worried about catching the virus. The students were also sensitized about being vigilant to use the new facilities. The parents and administration of SFLBNP and Kamuli Child Care are grateful to TUL and their sponsors in Marburg and The Netherlands for funding their schools to buy all the necessary requirements for school re-opening and enable their children to study safely at school.
