Like so many others throughout the world, the closure of the schools in Uganda has been detrimental to the education and lives of our ROWAN children. In February, we let you know about the plan we were putting into place to help bridge the educational gap for our children and families in Uganda. Today, we get to share the exciting news that our Learning Center is now open!
We currently have 4 teachers working at the Learning Center and have different curriculums for each grade level. In-person learning is done in groups based on grade level and these groups rotate weekly. The children love being able to be with their friends and teachers again! They also have the added excitement of being picked up for school in the ROWAN bus – a bus just for them.
In addition to the in-person learning each week, students at the Learning Center are given assignments to work on at home. Rowan staff are making follow-up visits to the student’s homes to help ensure that they are getting their assignments completed. We are also working hard to give the families the tools they need to be able to support and help their students at home.
Our Learning Center is the result of love in action and the joy we see in the eyes of the children who attend each day is a beautiful sight to see.
