For every 100 girls that join Primary 1 in Kaliro District, only 25 are able to complete the first 7 years of education. Only 15 complete the next 4 years of secondary education and less than 5 join institutions or high school. Only one of these girls will reach University! Records from many primary schools show that the enrolment of girls in school in the lower classes is higher than that of boys almost a ratio of 1 boy to every 2 girls. While the records from higher education institutions show that the number of boys is far higher than that of girls almost 1 girl to every 10 boys!
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.
Nitin is very interested in improving the children's ability to speak, read and write in English. Do you have experience with curriculum development? Can you assist in making tools or devising activities to promote better understanding of the English language and help children apply and practice their skills? Nitin needs your help!
