More children sensitized on HIV/AIDS

We here at Community Concerns Uganda have now visited another school and educated children on HIV/AIDS; what it is, how people get it, and most importantly how the children can prevent themselves from getting it and also how to support friends or family members that are affected by it. The school we visited last week was Hands of Grace Primary school in Mayuge district. The classroom was packed with students, and adding these to the number of students CCUg has reached so far, the number is now over 1500!

Here are some pictures from that day, and since the school didn’t have any sports equipment we thought it appropriate to at least bring the school a football which was delivered by our Swedish volunteer Jennie.

1400 educated school children, and counting!

As of yet, Community Concerns Uganda has reached a total number of 1400 school children, educating them on sexual and reproductive health, as well as on HIV/AIDS. We’re very happy about this, but there is lots more to be done! Our goal is to continue educating children about crucial issues such as health (including HIV/AIDS) and promoting good hygiene.

Here are some photos of us in the schools we have visited so far, featuring Programme Coordinator Brenda Nakirya, Michael Nangulu and one of our former volunteers Rosa Kang.

Teaching bead-making to a women group

As a form of income generating activity, Community Concerns Uganda is working in Nakalanga village teaching a group of women how to make paper beads and turn them into eco-friendly crafts! Our goal is that the women, using their creativity and newly required skills, will turn this into small businesses for them to support their families.
