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.
