Re-Opening of the Amasiko Green School
The school was reopened on 10 January 2022. Hooray!!
All teachers and 232 students are back on board.
Construction of a teacher´s house
The foundation was completed by the end of 2021.
The general meeting of Amasiko e.V. on 02 and 03 October 2021 decides to finance the construction of a teacher´s house with accommodation for 10 teachers. Due to the high costs, the construction is to be realised in two phases. The aim is to provide the basis for the existing teaching staff to continue their commitment to the school and to attract new, qualified teachers to work in this rural region.

News from the school
The registration of the school by the state education authority is largely completed and now everyone is waiting for the school to open to all school students.
The aid has arrived!
With the assistance of the Technical Director, 10 kg of beans and 10 kg of maize flour are distributed to the parents of the students. The rush shows how much the parents have been waiting for it.
A further call for help from Uganda
The restrictions caused by Corona also hit our community Hamukaka hard, even though the direct infection rates are relatively low. On 6 December 2020, we received a call for help from the school’s technical director asking for further food support (see 2020 projects). Most parents and their children have been at home since March, regular school meals are missing and the food situation is becoming more difficult and expensive.
The sum of 2,500 € has been transferred and the aid is starting.
This money will be used to buy basic foodstuffs and distribute them to the parents of the school children under the leadership of Frank Akankwasa.
Thank you to all who make this support possible!
