K4c HOME LEARNING PROJECT WITH Tusaidiane ends successfully!

The Managing Director of Tusaidiane Uganda, Ms. Sharifa Nabaweesi visited the Knowledge for Children (K4C) project in Masaka on the 22nd and 23rd of April 2021, to monitor and evaluate the success of the project. The K4C project aimed at mitigating the effects of COVID 19 and mainly help parents to learn to live with their children for a longer time and in a positive way while learning and reading safely from home. The total number of beneficiaries reached in the villages of Kyoko, Kisekka B, Kisoweera and Kagganda is 594 638 559 505 2296 children and 173 175 142 144 634 parents.

All the Local Council communities embraced the project. The parents wanted the project to continue mainly for the toddlers who were not yet back to school. Communities were happy with the homework given to the children. The reading exercise helped the children awaken their minds and prepare them for school. The food and home requirements distributed by K4C helped the poor families cope with food scarcity and the washing facilities helped the communities maintain the SOPs and good hygiene. In general, the project was successfully implemented with a positive impact on the communities.

Knowledge for Children (K4C) is grateful to the Sisters of Breda, in the Netherlands who funded the project and the Tusaidiane partners for the generous contribution towards their learning project.

It should be noted that the project comes to an end at a very crucial time when Uganda has been hit with the second wave of COVID 19 disease leading to the closure of all schools by the Ugandan government until further notice. We hope that the activities learnt from Knowledge for Children can be used by the parents to keep the children busy and safe at home.

The team was taken around for the inspection tour by one of the school Directors, Mrs. Josephine Kalanzi and Engineer Ibrahim Haumba. The quality of work done by the engineer is very OK and Kamuli Child Care is becoming a very beautiful school with happy and delighted community members.  The  Main Hall and Kitchen form a coherent unit which can be accessed via a ramp using a wheel chair or through steps. The Main Hall has different functions: dining hall, meeting hall and theatre stage for performances. The kitchen is spacious and well done with sufficient rain water harvesting.  Accommodated here also, is a school canteen.

The girl’s and boy’s dormitories are being  built concurrently and are progressing well. Also notably is the quality of work for the construction of the classrooms.

On the 5th of February 2021, a team of TUL consultants represented by the MD of Tusaidiane Uganda, Sharifa Nabaweesi and Phiona Nalweyiso visited the Knowledge for Children (K4C) project in Masaka for supervision (monitoring and evaluation).

The consultants were happy with the project implementation by K4C, it is a good project which is changing the lives of so many vulnerable children and their families in the remote villages of Masaka, Lwengo that have no access to learning in these hard corona times. They would like to thank CONGRAVA for funding this project.

WATER USAGE GOES DOWN DUE TO THE CORONA LOCKDOWN CRISIS

Usage of water went down tremendously after the closure of schools in March due to the pandemic. Consumption was extremely low! When the president re-opened schools for student finalists (primary seven, senior four and six students) in October, the students started again to consume the safe drinking water, and usage went up. During our final routine water service round (2020), only 37 clients who had cleared all their service dues were eligible for this water service. Five of these were however out of order and 5 have no metre. Thirty-two clients were not serviced due to non-payment. Before the pandemic, clients used 1.4 million litres of water in 6 months and this usage went down to 453.000 litres for the six months during the pandemic. We hope that in 2021 when schools are re-opened, water usage will stabilise/ rise again. Tusaidiane Uganda Limited through the intervention of the Tusaidiane Trust and donors, will give back to clients who have previously paid all their service dues promptly (37 clients), by offering them free water service for the year 2021 as a way of mitigating the negative financial effects of the Corona lock down pandemic on schools. Clients who have not paid their previous service dues are encouraged to clear their balances so as to be eligible for the free 2021 water service.

TUL would like to thank CONGRAVA and the Tusaidiane Trust for funding this water service project. We are also grateful to the water clients who duly pay their service fees and are still committed to serving you.
