Health & Hygiene
We want to help when the schools feed their children. So, to enable them to have clean water and a small mug of maize porridge the school needs items that they can store and have ready as well as receptacles for washing hands and drinking water.
Items for donation: 24 porridge mugs (£4), jerry cans for water transport (£1.70), 12 mugs for staff (£14) water fountain (£35), water tank for washing hands £16
Ugandan schools are desperately short of the materials needed to provide effective lessons. Most of the materials are donated and the gaps are often filled by teachers buying supplies out of their own pockets. The following materials would make a huge difference to the children and can have long-lasting impacts on their life chances.
Items for donation: chalk (£7), blackboard paint (£3.50), geometry sets for older children (£2), blackboard rulers, triangles, etc. (£14.50)
The classrooms in Uganda are a far cry from what we would expect for children in the Western World. Classrooms are poorly maintained with children having to share resources including desks and chairs.
Items for donation: Preschool Table (£40), preschool benches (£12), classroom desk (£30), teacher’s chair (£17)
These children grow up in a rural community. The skills they learn in the school gardens provide lifelong abilities for them to support their families as well as providing much-needed food for the school.
Items for donation: gardening hoe (£3), gardening slash (£2), goat for the school (£40)
Sport and the Arts
The arts, music and sport are no less necessary for children growing up in poverty in Central Africa but access to the materials needed are all-too-often very limited. These materials and activities can be life changing for the children they reach.
Items for donation: footballs (£20), netballs (£14), volleyball net (£23), volleyball (£12), set of drums (£110), a class’ art supplies for a whole term (£110)
