Our target and goals
Since 2014 we built schools around Kyaka II refugee settlement in order to make quality Early childhood education available and accessible for the refugee children between the age of 3 to 7 years.
Since we are unable to have the children at school due to Covid-19, we are reaching to each child in his/their homes. In 2020 we targeted 765 children aged 3 to 7 from which 98.5% refugee children and 1.5% children from the host community (rural area) who have been attending ECD in Kyaka II refugee settlement Kyegegwa, Uganda. 52% of the children are girls while 48% are boys.
During the pandemic my children where able to learn while at home which protected them from being dangers like rape compared to other children
I had a lot of thoughts concerning how I could provide education to my child, and when are children are learning via TV yet I don't have a TV. Only YIDA managed to help me to educate a child at home by sending a teacher at my house.
