Dear Jennifer and all neighbors
Sorry for long gap and not updating the Gamauli village website. Even we have done so many things in Gamuli schools and also in school community. School has completed a building and going to establish library for small children.Friday celebration program is being very effective and students as well as parents participation is increasing.
Here I would like to request for neighbors and other people who are interested are well come for their donation of books, reading materials and stationary for the sch ool in Gamauli.
Nakyerongosa village started a community resource centre after observing the need for such a facility in the area. The idea came about as a result of support from a retired community trainer who donated a few of his books because he wanted to give something back to the community. COMASA officials sensitised schools and community members about the programmes at the Centre. Since then people have realised the importance of the resource centre as a source of knowledge and it is making a world of difference for children whose schools are too poor to afford books.
Many women have been forced into income generating activities so as be able to care for their households. The activities engaged in include operation of food joints, hair saloons, retail shops and market stalls in the nearby town, Kakiri.
Little Angels school does not have enough books for the children to read.
We are asking volunteers to help us find international or Ugandan organisations/companies that could donate reading books to the school. Books must be suitable for nursery and primary age children.
