Primary Partnership Program - Porridge!

This week's Primary Partnership Program newsletter we are talking about Porridge!

A little over a year ago, some of our staff and a few of the teachers at our partner schools met with one another to discuss areas for improvement within their schools. Together, we quickly acknowledge the unfortunate reality that the majority of their students were not taking breakfast. Because the primary schools we work with charge school fees, breakfast is an additional cost that the parents and guardians often cannot afford. Therefore, many students would go until lunch without eating anything since dinner the night before. 

We believe it is impossible for a child to thrive in the classroom when they are hungry, which is why in collaboration with our three partner schools we have implemented a breakfast program. Regardless if it is 100 students or 1 student, we believe all students should start the day off with something in their bellies and are thrilled that all the students at our 3 partner schools get exactly that!

Between the three schools, there are approximately 700 students receiving a hot (and delicious!) cup of porridge every single morning!
Providing porridge is an integral part of our Primary Partnership Program. In just 2018 we served 160,100 cups of porridge between our three partners schools. That is a lot of full bellies and active minds! 

Next week we will share with you some of the programs we offer the schools as a part of the Primary Partnership Program. Until then, consider giving the gift of breakfast by supporting Action in Africa today!

Welcome to Action in Africa's Primary Partnership Program


Hello Action in Africa family! For the month of February, we are doing a weekly newsletter to highlight one of our favorite programs at The Center, the Primary Partnership Program. 

Immediately following the opening of The Center, we were approached by various schools and teachers from Nakuwadde who hoped to use the space for their classes and students. Today we have four different primary schools enrolled in the Primary Partnership Program. We host these four schools and let them use our classrooms and open spaces for interactive sessions including debates, spelling bees, creative writing, storytelling, drama, art, music, yoga, PE and so much more.
 
The vision for this program is to offer schools in our community programs that complement what is being taught in their classrooms. While at The Center, each student has access to clean drinking water, a nutritious snack and a professional facilitator all while being in a colorful and positive environment.

What Do the Teachers and Students Have to Say?

 
“I'm grateful to you for the partnership and I request that the pupils are taught more about the need to share with the needy in their community. They should also be involved in some generous activities so that they learn to share and not only benefit. Let's be the change we want to see.” - A teacher involved in the Primary Partnership Program
 

“I appreciate everything provided to us because they are very helpful to our life, education, and the future. Thank you very much for the love you show us at Action in Africa." 
- A student

Follow along with us for the next few weeks to learn more about the Primary Partnership Program. From the breakfast offering to the creative and unique programs to how graduating primary students can then join our high school scholarship program, there is a lot happening with just this one program. More details to come!
 
Until the next newsletter, consider giving the gift of education by supporting Action in Africa's Primary Partnership Program today!
