Mountains of the Moon: Trekking the Rwenzori Mountains
An incredible opportunity to trek through the Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon and discover montane ecosystems
- Group must complete practice treks in the UK before departure
Primary education in Uganda is free for all children, but with the massive uptake of children now attending schools, funds are stretched to pay for the employment of teachers meaning that facilities such as classrooms and dormitories are chronically underfunded.
Many schools in Uganda are extremely basic, with teaching aids limited to blackboards painted on crumbling plaster. Whilst the community are keen to enrich school environments, the lack of funds for resources is the problem.
This project enables you to make a hugely valuable difference to the school environment. Using funds you have raised to provide resources, groups will work with the community to renovate and enrich classrooms within school. Creating inspirational teaching aids to enhance the learning experience will make a really difference to the quality of education. Taking the opportunity to create playgrounds will inspire play based learning. Cultural exchanges with the community could include football games and sports days.
