Yesterday volunteers gave lessons about the human body at class 3 and 5. Also other volunteers made drawings with the younger children. Very nice to see.
Pupils on Bugabira Day & Boarding School PS have clean hands. They use tippy taps to keep them clean. There are two tippy taps at Bugabira Day & Boarding School PS and they are a great advantage, because the pupils do not have to open the jerry can with water to wash their hands. To keep the hands of the pupils clean we digged some new holes and moved the tippy taps. Now they are steady again and the pupils are able to wash their hands after visiting the latrine and before they eat their lunch.
Bugabira Day & Boarding School PS’ cow Suubi (Hope) has given birth to a bull calf. His name is Nina. That’s great news! Suubi is doing fine and provides now milk to the pupils of Bugabira Day & Boarding School PS. We are able to add milk to their porridge and they also drink their evening tea with milk.
Bugabira School is a mixed, day and boarding primary school in Masaka, Uganda.The school was opened in February 2012 by the Community Health, Empowerment, Development and Relief Agency (CHEDRA) after a regional needs assessment revealed that many children in the surrounding areas have no access to affordable education. Bugabira and the surrounding areas of Kyali and Kyalguo, are amongst the poorest in the Masaka District and are home to many families infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Many children are either orphans or living with an incapacitated guardian who is unable to provide for their basic needs.Bugabira School receives no government support but charges only minimum fees in order to make quality education accessible to these children.
Bugabira School is committed to giving children the skills and knowledge to solve current and future problems. The vision is to foster a new generation of empowered and community-minded individuals.
