BENEFITING: American Refugee Committee

EVENT: World Refugee Day 5k

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

My name is Reagan Tukkasibkle and I am a teacher at Kashojwa Primary School in Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda.  

Boys, girls, it makes no difference – the most popular sport at Kashojwa is futbol! We have Under-12, Under-14 and Under-16 teams for boys and girls.  

Our field isn’t just used by the school, many from the community come and play or exercise here, too. So, my team’s idea is to upgrade our futbol facilities and equipment so that members of the community continue coming to interact with the students and the school.  But to do that we need a few things. We need new goal posts with nets. We need balls and sports shoes for everyone to share – enough for all the players out on the field. We need uniforms, whistles for the referees, and help leveling out a few of the bumpy areas of our field.  

I really hope we can make this happen. Soccer and sports can help our students maintain their concentration and learn better communications skills. 

On June 20th – our team will run in the 5k to support our idea! I’ll be joined by my fellow teachers: 

- Pinkllin Nabaasa 

- Christina Atukklase
