EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

Hello from Oruchinga refugee settlement (right next door to Nakivale settlement). My name is Dorothy Atubasise. I’m 27 years old and I’ve been teaching in the Deaf Unit at Kajaho Primary School for the last 4 years. 

We have students with physical, visual and mental special needs. When they come to us they don’t believe in themselves – but when they play and cooperate they know they can be someone in the community. They develop self-awareness and begin believing in themselves. ‘I’m deaf, I’m disabled,’ it goes away when they play. 

We’ve found that indoor games work better for our students, so my idea is to see if we could get them games like Chess, Ludo, Chutes and Ladders. It would be terrific if we’d be able to get a table tennis table, paddles and balls, too. We actually have room for it in our classroom.  

Our school is a mix of Ugandan nationals and refugee students. When they play they become one family and learn different languages and cultures. I’m running in the World Refugee Day 5k to bring more play to Kajaho Primary!
