BENEFITING: American Refugee Committee

EVENT: World Refugee Day 5k

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

My name is Medard Turyayetonganira. I’m a teacher at Juru Primary School in Nakivale Refugee Settlement – I’ve been teaching English to Level 7 students for the last 9 years. 

Music is so important! We try to make it a priority at our school – we’ve represented our district at the regional competition for several years. When children are singing, their minds open. Making music helps them excel at all of their other school subjects. 

That’s why I’m running with my fellow teachers – to let even more students at Juru PS learn and play music. We would purchase xylophones, drums, traditional instruments and costumes for the music groups. And, in addition to western music, we’d also teach our students traditional music. That’s one of the ways kids learn about their cultures. 

I can’t wait until June 20, that’s when I’ll be running for music!
