Dubai - Wam

 A Dubai Cares delegation led by Tariq Al Gurg, Chief Executive Officer at Dubai Cares, has successfully concluded a field visit to launch three new education programmes in Uganda.

The three programmes, which are set to benefit more than 21,500 children and young adults in Uganda, are worth AED 11.35 million (USD 3.1 million).

In Adjumani, Dubai Cares has launched a 15-month education in emergencies programme titled "Providing Emergency Education to Refugee and host community Girls and Boys in Uganda", in partnership with Plan International. This AED 4.2 million (USD 1.1 million) programme aims to provide education to South Sudanese refugee children and adolescents, as well as children from the host communities in northern Uganda. The programme is set to benefit 15,000 children and young people.

Along with the new programme aimed to support South Sudanese refugees and host communities in Northern Uganda, Dubai Cares launched another new programme in Lira District partnership with the Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE) to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education among girls in Uganda. This AED 4.3 million (USD 1.2 million) 3-year programme seeks to address gender disparities and barriers girls face in STEM. The program benefits 6000 girls and responds to the 2030 agenda of positioning STEM as a pathway to socio economic development.

Furthermore, 400 teachers and 40 head teachers will be trained to have improved skills in gender responsive pedagogical teaching of STEM and trainings will also be extended to teacher training colleges where 100 lecturers will also be trained on the same topic.

Dubai Cares delegation then moved to Amolatar district to launch the third programme in partnership with Leonard Cheshire Disability (LCD).

The program aims to ensure that 500 children with disabilities in the same district are enrolled in mainstream primary schools. With a total cost of AED 2.8 million (USD 767,134), the ‘Inclusive Education in Northern Uganda’ programme will indirectly benefit more than 21,400 members of the community, including teachers, parents, and government staff.
