Improvement of the educational situation in Kyazanga, Uganda

Uganda | since January 2019 | Adept e.V.
The Kyazanga region in southwestern Uganda is a particularly structurally weak region. Almost all families live exclusively from agriculture with which they can survive but hardly generate income. In order to offer a high-quality education to the young people living there, the St. Anthony School Kyazanga has been part of the support programme of the association Adept e. V., which supports educational institutions in Uganda since 2017.
The Beurer Foundation supports Adept e. V. to improve the career prospects of the students at St. Anthony Secondary School.

For the year 2019/2020, this includes the construction of science rooms for teaching physics, chemistry, biology and agriculture as well as the construction of an agricultural training workshop at St. Anthony Secondary School in Kyanzanga.

This project is of great importance for the educational situation in this region. In addition, the project will reduce the lack of space at the school: until now only three classrooms and the auditorium have been available for nearly 400 young people, so that the class size was around 100 pupils.

Construction of a building for science

In the summer of 2020, the construction of the scientific section was completed. The new section has two science rooms with water and gas connections for teaching in the subjects Physics & Chemistry and Biology & Agriculture as well as a material and preparation room. Each classroom is constructed for lessons with 50 students.
In addition, the rooms were equipped with appropriate furniture, scientific equipment and teaching materials. The construction of the scientific tract significantly improves the quality of teaching at the school.

Construction of an agricultural training workshop

The agricultural training workshop was completed in the summer of 2020. Better machinery and farming methods can significantly increase agricultural yields in the region, thus significantly improving the prospects for the future of the young people there.

On the one hand, the agricultural training workshop serves the safe storage of modern agricultural machinery and on the other hand, the pupils also learn the servicing and maintenance of these machines as part of their lessons.
