Back to school

"Start children off on the way they should go, and

even when they are old

they will not turn from it.

— Proverbs 22:6

 

Each year Banda Children Ministry provides uniforms for disadvantaged children. Children are not allowed to enter school without the correct uniform and appropriate footwear. It might only cost around $20.00 to provide a uniform but it is out of the reach of many families It is yet another potential barrier which can mean a disadvantaged child either cannot attend school at all or attends in a uniform in a very poor state. Attending school in a neat and tidy uniform can make a huge difference to a child’s confidence and self-esteem and how they feel about attending school.

 

We would like to provide at least one set of uniform to around 200 of the most in need and also provide around 115 uniforms to pre-primary children. We would also want to provide footwear for all of the children at BCM.

The new academic year in Uganda starts in February after a long summer holiday. Well before school breaks up in December plans are being put into place to ensure that uniforms are ready for the new year. Providing uniforms is a complicated business since the children attend several different schools, most of which have different uniforms. Some are ready made whilst the majorities are individually tailored. A change of uniform takes place when children move from primary Level to secondary level, boys change from shorts to long trousers. All children have to be measured by the tailor, the necessary cloths for the various uniforms are purchased, uniforms are stitched and the readymade uniforms purchased. It is a big task for the BCM team to ensure all children have the correct uniform for the new year and we always appreciate their work to make this project a success.
