Marguerite, the Peace Corps Volunteer at Kigarama School has been holding spelling bees and malaria workshops.
and Education Peace Corps Volunteer Paul Benz, “Music Man” ,visited 5 schools bringing his music and songs to issues of good citizenship and conservation – many adapted from well known US songs – The Wheels on the Bus, This Little Light of Mine and The Hokey Pokey.
Thanks to funding from the British and Foreign School Society to the Kasiisi Porridge Project, we are building girl-friendly latrines at Kiamara, Kasenda and Nyabweya primary schools,
and we have big new signs advertising that Kasiisi Primary School is now accepting Boarders. The number of boarders has increased from 8 last term to 44 this term, split approximately 60:40 girls to boys – we are on our way!
