How Schools are Operating During COVID-19

Schools are still struggling to operate with only candidate classes during this era of COVID-19 period and the most affected ones are private schools operating in rural areas.

Some schools lack enough space to accommodate learners while others are struggling to get sanitizers and other essential materials to protect learners from COVID-19


Schools who could not manage to open with candidate classes only decided to surrender learners to other schools which accepted to take them on in order to be able to seat for their final National exams.

However other schools have managed to operate during this COVID-19 period by getting support from well wishers who have donated to them with material to be used by learners and teachers.

Pupils of Tom and Margaret Carroll Memorial Education Center in Mawotto- Najja subcounty and pupils of Maranatha Primary school in Najjembe County in Lugazi municipality council received masks donated by Saluganda of Spain through the local NGO partner Cape of Good Hope Orphan Care and family support project of Uganda.

They received also, temperature guns, cans for hand wash, liquid soap, sanitizer, garden tools, desks, and funds to construct the walkways for children with disabilities at Good Samaritan primary school in Nasuti, Mukono municipality council.
