Hello, I am Sara. I am a teacher here at Nyaragugu Primary School in Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda.
Our enrollment is big here. We have 1,700 students – Ugandan nationals and refugee students both. We have just a few balls, and that is not enough for all of these children to get a chance to play.
So, my idea is to get all of the sports equipment we need to get our students playing. So, that includes balls for futbol, volleyball and netball. Nets. Whistles for the coaches. Uniforms of different colors. Shoes. Supplies to mark the lines of the fields and courts – so we know what is in bounds and out of bounds.
I will be running in the World Refugee Day 5k with my fellow teachers. I hope you will support our idea to bring sports equipment to Nyaragugu School.
