Child of Hope - Uganda
We are delighted to let you know that the new secondary school, the construction of which you so generously supported, opened on February 3, 2020 in line with all other schools across Uganda for the start of the new academic year. Bad weather meant that some of the groundworks and external painting were not quite completed... but that did not deter all the students turning up on the first day! Of course, staff had already been hard at work the previous week with preparations for lesson plans and day-to-day administrative tasks to ensure all went smoothly on the first day.
It is the only secondary school in the area providing education to the children of the villages of Namabasa, Namatala, Kolonyi and Kabwangasi. Child of Hope will continue to provide totally free education, social, medical and welfare support for the poorest children from the slum.
We send you our sincerely grateful thanks for making all this possible.
Wulugu - Northern Ghana
Helping to build a primary school at Disiga, Northern Ghana 2019
The generous donation from Clive and Sylvia Richards Charity was a vital part of the project.
Before the new school was built, the pupils brought stools to sit on and carried them home each day. There were 2 blackboards one for each end, so one class faces one way, another the opposite and the one in the middle faces sideways.
The children, despite this, were keen to be there and are learning.
The community helped in every way possible. Village women carried soil, stones and water. Villagers gave the masons accommodation.
Disiga Primary opened in September 2019 and has made a substantial difference, particularly in enabling children to be taught during the rains.
It was officially handed over to Ghana Education service on. They were clear that their role was to ensure that the school runs well and is maintained properly.
They have recruited teachers and head and supplied books and some equipment.
Overall, the project went on smoothly and the enthusiasm is high. Most importantly, the children were so excited and looked forward to the completion and reopening of schools so they can have a real school at last.
