Meet the Boys Who Started a Library in Uganda

Junior and Bless Moses, two COTN® students in Uganda, love to read. They read several books a week. But supporting their reading habit was difficult, because COTN’s secondary school didn’t have a library.

(UG) Secondary School Girls Water Project

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility : 
Hidden

With the addition of the secondary school, the water usage at COTN-Uganda has increased drastically and we need to begin exploring ways to use the rain water that falls during rainy season.

COTN-Uganda has seen the opportunity to add gutters and a water tank to collect rain water from the roof of the girls' dormitory. The water will run off of the roof into the gutters attached to the building. It will then be piped to a water tank (which will hold 30,000 liters or 7,925 gallons) that will be equipped with a tap for students and staff to come and use.

(UG) School Urinals

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility :

We have seen a big problem in overcrowding at our school bathrooms. For a variety of reasons, this is not a good thing. We are especially concerned about the privacy of our older girls. Right now there is little space to distinguish between the boys' toilets and the girls' toilets.

COTN-Uganda has made some adjustments internally to help the situation, but it is not enough to alleviate the number of people that use the toilets. Adding a urinal separate for the boys will help us in this area.

(UG) Primary School Band

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility :

Our primary school has developed greatly in the last few years. To continue to grow and improve the education of our children, COTN Nursery and Primary School would like to begin a school band.  

Research has shown that people who are involved in music education see an increase in their academic performance. Our children in Uganda are very involved in singing and dancing, but have had limited opportunities to learn band instruments. We would like to change that in the near future.

(UG) Study Tour 2019

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility :

Since 2013, our primary 7 students have embarked on a 3-day field trip (called a “study tour”) to visit areas of Uganda many of our children have not yet reached. We are praying that 2019 will be no different.

To enhance the learning done in school, the teaching staff would like to take students to Jinja, Kampala, and Entebbe for a field trip. 

In Jinja, the students are able to see and learn about the River Nile and see the actual point where the Nile River begins.

(UG) School Library Furnishings

Project Country: 
Uganda
Visibility :

We are blessed at COTN's nursery and primary school to have purchased many textbooks for our pupils. While we have done our best to keep them well, it has been difficult to do so as we don’t have a proper place to keep them.

In addition, our primary teachers have begun to see the benefit of reading aloud to children often. The library would be a wonderful place to take the children and read stories to them and let them explore reading story books on their own.
