COVID-19 Relief

Uganda is in for the second wave of Covid-19 and is back for lockdown. Many sectors are frozen as of 18th June 2021, for a period of 42 days. This means no income to many Ugandans especially the populace that we serve. In the first lockdown, friends of SCOU were very positive and the community was very appreciative. The community needs Maize flour, beans, rice, sugar, wheat flour, cooking oil. The organization prepares a budget for these items. Sanitary items like sanitisers, face masks, soap, water jerrycans and messages of stopping the spread of the virus.

Sserinya Primary School

Sserinya Primary School has a current enrolment of over 280 pupils, ages 5-16, both boys and girls. We also admit physically challenged children. We have classes from nursery to primary Seven. A very well trained and dedicated team of 12 teachers and 3 support staff is available to ensure the formation of a whole self reliant citizen.

Child sponsorship

There are many children in the community whose parents, guardians and maybe relatives cannot afford even quarter of the tuition at our school. Reasons among them are loss of parents, loss of jobs by the guardians, environmental calamities that destroy gardens, handicap of relatives among others. Such children do not have to lose at the expense of the elders. We have sought sponsorship of so far over 30 children, and many more still need sponsorship.

some children need help right from home, that even their houses are dilapidated and need repair, parents need a boost to regain their financial status. Some sponsors prefer helping the whole family for a given time, others one child in a family for a given time, yet others a one time offer. All options can be welcome. SCOU acts as the link between the sponsor, child and school.

Classroom Extension

The increasing enrolment in the school, and number of classes has rendered available space not enough. Volunteers have worked with SCOU to raise yet another classroom block, which is not yet complete
