Far Away Friends School Outreach Program
Public schools in the Namasale area tend to be overcrowded, underfunded and lacking the adequate sanitation, housing, teacher training and educational resources that are essential to healthy child development. Working closely alongside the Administration, Teachers & Parents we are currently engaging with three other primary & secondary schools in the Namasale with the aim of raising the standard for education for all children in the sub-county.
Through our School Outreach Program we have been able to:
- Provide Mentorship workshops with students at Namasale SEED Secondary School which has resulted in a decrease in absenteeism among girl students
- Provided sanitary pads & training to girls at our partner schools
- Host an annual Friendship Football Match and provide soccer balls to our partner schools thanks to Charity Ball
- Provide free Teacher Training workshops to 15 teachers at our partner schools
