Describe the community needs that your project will address.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Found in Lake Victoria, Kalangala district (also called Ssese Islands) is an islands district composed of 84

 

 

islands of which 64 are inhabited with an estimated population of 64,000 people. The majority of the

 

 

population in the district falls under low income bracket, and

in fishing as the main economic activity.

 

 

The Rotary Club of Kampala Ssese Islands (RCKSI) carried outengagec

munity needs assessment

the district

 

 

in July 2014. The findings of this study showed that the district has some of the worst education indicators in

 

 

the country. Firstly, less than 28 percent of all school-age children are actually in school; only about 30 percent

 

 

of the children recruited in P.1 actually complete P.7 while the textbook to child ratio is as low as 1:7 (the

 

 

deal ratio is 1:1). Secondary, although

he district’s performance in national exams at PLE slightly i  proved

 

 

in 2011 and 2012, it is still below the national average. Furthermore, the statistics on literacy and numeracy

 

 

levels in the district as per NATU and NAPE reports are some of the lowest in the country, something they

 

 

 

ttributed to lack of appropriate textbooks and teaching aids. Besides, very few schools visited had equipment

Moreover, due to its unique nature as an islands and fragmented

 

 

 

 

 

services is both difficult and very expensive. The problemdistrict,compounded by the fact that the district

 

 

educationishard-to-reach area and hence is unable to attract and retain enough qualified teachers. In fact, during the

 

 

needs assessment we noted staff gaps in all the schools visited. Additiona ly, we found out that UPE

because many parents cannot afford the boarding/maintenance fees and purchase of the necessary scholastic

 

 

materials incl. text books. The devastating consequences of HIV/AIDS in the district (with  prevalence rate

 

 

of 27 percent compared to the national average of 7.2 percent) have compounded the vulnerability of the

 

 

islands communities.

 

 

 

 

How did your project team identify these needs?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

s from The Rotary Club of Kampala-Ssese Islands sent two Rotarians (Rotarian David Kintu and

 

 

Rotarian Nel on Kabwama) to do

needs assessment   primary and secondary schools in Ssese Islands in

 

 

Kala

gala

District. The Rotary team started by approaching the District Education office which responded by

 

 

assigning the District Inspector of schools to be part of the needs. The assessment took three days and at the

 

 

end of it all 23 primary schools and 3 secondary schools were visited.

 

 

 

How were members of the benefiting community involved in finding solutions?

 

 

 

 

 

during the needs assessment, the Rotarians and the inspector of schools visited these schools and met the

 

 

Headteachers and other teachers, they also talked to some students. In the brief meeting at all these schools,

 

 

the members expressed ideas on how to improve the need for basic education materials.

How were community members involved in planning the project?

 

 

 

 

 

Through:-

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

• seeking ideas and opinions from stakeholders, including district education officer, district inspector of

 

 

schools, school head teachers, director of studies and teachers in charge of co-curricular activities

 

 

• provision of district plans and proposals by Kalangala District Local Government leaders

 

 

• seeking guidance from school head teachers and district education officer on appropriate and relevant

 

 

textbooks, teacher guides as well as equipment and materials for sports activities

 

 

 

 

 

• getting input from members of the PTA and the school management committees
