OUR FRIENDSHIP SCHOOL
"The aim of the project is to encourage honest and informative interaction between two groups of pupils growing up in different environments in two continents; which will aid the understanding of the children’s global citizenship and awareness. Once a term, these two groups of pupils write letters to each other; thus the friendship school program between Child Africa Junior School, Kabale, Uganda and Newtown Primary School, Shropshire, England. The program started in March 2011. Letters travel miles: 4033.09 / kilometers: 6490.45 within minutes with the help of modern technology, though the lack of electricity and internet services in Uganda sometimes causes a delay in the arrival of letters. Once the letters arrive in Kabale, they are delivered by the secretary who has to walk 2 kilometers to school. Teamwork in both continents is essential. So far the letter exchanges have not only given pupils at Newtown Primary School and Child Africa Junior School a greater global prospective but also great joy.

Both hearing pupils and the deaf appreciate the carpentry lessons and never complain about having to share the 3 saws and 3 hammers. A skilled and patient local carpenter is paid to teach the students carpentry skills. A school teacher assists by signing the carpenter’s instructions to the deaf children. In June 2011, the carpentry group started building weaving frames for the handcraft project group. Due to inflation, prices increase regularly; including the price of nails, tools and timber. Without donations, skills such as carpentry cannot be taught. Child Africa Equator School has a similar carpentry project. By giving a donation you can help Child Africa teach disadvantaged children new handcrafts and skills. You may give a donation through “Give a Donation” on our homepage. Please write “For Carpentry Projects” in the comment box.

On 4th October 2010, a Better Globe representative Einar Formo handed over brass band instruments from Støren Musikkorps, Byneset & Leinstrand Skolekorps and Carl Christain Størvold in Norway to Child Africa Junior School, Kabale. Two young musicians from Kabale voluntarily agreed to teach the pupils to play until funding for their salaries could be found. A brass band was formed and members had their first lesson on 3rd March 2011. 4 months later on 2nd July they led Child Africa staff, pupils, parents and Better Globe visitors several miles; through Kabale town to the school premises. The brass band marched wearing Norwegian brass band uniforms that had been donated and delivered at the end of June. These children had neither held an instrument nor had a music lesson with an instrument of this kind before March 3rd. Einar Formo was back at the school, nine months after handing over the instruments. He was both amazed and delighted to see and hear the pupils play with such joy and enthusiasm. Child Africa Junior School is the only junior school in Uganda with a brass band.

On 25th March 2011, 36 pupils from Child Africa Junior School proudly competed against other junior schools from Kabale municipality in an athletic competition. Many schools from the town which has a population of approximately 42,000 took part. Wearing green and black sports outfits donated by MIL, they did their best. MIL stands for Midtbygden Idrettslag, Tau, Norway; a local youth sports club in Strand, Norway. Many pupils cheered their fellow classmates on as they competed. 6 of the 36 competing qualified for the municipality team to compete in regional competitions which will take place on 8th April, 2011. Sadly, one of our star pupils fell and punctured his knee on a nail but having had intensive treatment from a friendly nurse, we hope that he will manage to run like the wind in the next competition! ……..

Here you can follow the process of brick making in Kabale step by step. To create a brick which will have a long life, one has to have good quality clay and a skilled work force. Child Africa is lucky to have both. You too can pay for a brick or two to help us build the new Child Africa School for 2000 pupils quicker by clicking into Brick Project and seeing how many bricks we still need to reach our goal.

School Visits and Gatherings
Child Africa has registered poor children in many schools in Uganda in addition to our own schools. However, we have many more children on our website who are all waiting for a sponsor that can help them with education, food, clothes and medicines. If you want to help a child to get a better life, you can choose to sponsor your own child for only 29 Euros per month. Have a closer look at our Sponsor a child page to find a child you would like to help.

Kiambere School Project in Kenya
Child Africa has undertaken the repair of various structural deficiencies in Kiambere school, which is located about 2 hours north-east of Nairobi. The population of the area is very poor and there are huge deficiencies in that school. A large hall in the boarding house is the home for approx. 300 boys and many of them are orphans. It's almost unbearable to be inside because of the heat. The beds must continuously be moved due to leaky metal roof.
