The measures seemed to be easing, but unfortunately that is not the case. Fortunately, it is not that bad compared to the previous lock-down. In recent days, the new measures in Uganda have been announced. We would like to share an update with you about what the coming time will look like.
Fortunately, it is not that bad for families and their work, but because many children are at home again, this also demands a lot from parents. All schools will be closed for the next two months. And that naturally creates concerns about the development of their children. You can imagine that this entails a lot of uncertainty and pressure.
Of course, the measures also have an impact on our work in Uganda and the team. Our team hoped to be able to start again with the Tjeko Live Lessons – Creativity Series.
In the near future, our team will focus on radio programs for children. Which they started at the beginning of 2020. Our Tjeko Clubs in the communities will of course continue!
Our team came up with the cool idea to go door to door with their new social enterprise program from Tjeko Fun Services: Uganda – The Bike Tour. The ride is in Jinja, with the renters of our bikes we visit the surrounding districts in Jinja like Bujagali, Busowoko waterfalls, Kigulu hills etc.
As you can read, a lot is happening again and we will continue to focus on what is possible! Be creative and innovative! Despite the continuous adjustment, our staff is doing well and we will share more with you soon!
Do you have a good tip for this eventful time or do you know someone who has great ideas for Tjeko? Feel free to email us!
