Shaping Young Futures

  • The Future we want

Grace is an early years teacher at WECO Uganda School, rural Uganda. Grace teaches 4 and 5 year olds, and when she joined the school in 2019, children were taught under an avocado tree and a temporary wooden classroom. Sadly a storm destroyed the wooden classroom and the tree fell down and the youngsters were exposed to rain and cold, resulting in many of them dropping out or becoming ill.

“With the three new permanent classrooms things have started to change. The number of pupils has increased to 150 this year, compared to 40 pupils before the construction.” Grace.

Grace is delighted that she is able to display learning materials for the first time and the children now have charts and pictures on the walls which bring their learning to life.
