BENEFITING: American Refugee Committee

EVENT: World Refugee Day 5k

EVENT DATE: Jun 20, 2017

THE STORY:

Greetings from Kashojwa Primary School at Nakivale Refugee Settlement, Uganda. I am Sylivano Kabahweza. I’m a teacher at Kashojwa where I teach mathematics to students in Level 6. 

My idea is to start a long-distance running club at Kashojwa Primary School. My fellow teachers and I believe that distance running requires energy and patience – and we want to encourage those qualities in our learners.  

To begin, we need sports shoes to prevent injury to our runners. We need a whistle and starter to organize participants and a first aid kit in case some accident does happen. And of course, we need a stopwatch so we can know how fast we’ve run.  

My fellow teachers and I will run in the World Refugee Day 5k in support of our distance running team – I hope you’ll help us make our idea real.     


My teacher teammates are: 

- Kiiza Syliver

- Karungi Rosebell

- Joan Akasingura

- Atukunda Dianah

- Arijuka Shallon

- Ahairwe Meron

- Baranikura John Claude

- Mutebi Fred

- Byonanebye Shallon

- Nabaasa Juliet

- Ninsiima Winie

- G Livingstone Mugisha
