We are very happy to inform you that in the mid of January 2022 all schools in Uganda have been reopened after 83 weeks of lockdown. Most of our students were very excited about the return to school.
Unfortunately, not everything went without problems and a few of our students dropped out of the program or have to take a break until they can go back to school; because some of the girls get married or become mothers. Some still needed some convincing, also their parents and guardians. Thanks to the great efforts of the TuTo Uganda team, the return to the schools could be arranged without any big problems.
The TuTo Junior School was also able to reopen on January 10, 2022, and also started new with the first two primary school classes (primary one and two). A total of 88 students are now attending our TuTo school. Three new teachers, Ms. Mercy Awor Ms. Cissy Nakabiri and Ms Atiya Kagoya have been hired for our school and we would like to introduce them to you in the following article Link.
All children and young people have grown taller, older and more mature over time. The government therefore ordered automatic promotion for all students to the next higher class. The reason given for this was to compensate the students for the two lost Corona years. This is of course a big challenge for teachers as well as for the students.
Here you can find some pictures about the return to school.
