Remote Learning in Uganda: Grace

Many in our LWB community will remember Grace, the brave teen from a remote lake region of Uganda who twice battled abdominal tumors. When we first got to know Grace, her medical condition has caused her to drop out of school for several years. She told us that more than anything she dreamed of getting an education.  Following her surgeries, LWB supporters made it possible for Grace to pursue that dream.  She was able to enroll in the top primary boarding school in the region, where through lots of hard work, she quickly rose to the top of her class.

Remote Learning in Cambodia

When Cambodia made the decision to temporarily shutter its schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the government suggested that all learning go online. There was one major problem for the regions where LWB works, however. The majority of children in these rural villages don’t even have access to electricity, no less the internet. Our passionate teachers were committed to making sure the children’s lessons continued. Now, each day they travel by bicycle, and motorbike, often on mud-soaked dirt roads, to deliver paper learning packets and in-person instruction to even the most remote households.

Books to Huainan

As schools throughout the United States shift to remote learning in the wake of COVID-19, teachers and parents have had to find creative ways to engage and educate school children who can no longer be in the classroom. It has been no different for the nannies and caregivers in the Huainan orphanage. Since the children could not return to school after the winter break, their caregivers have been working hard to provide different learning opportunities within the orphanage. In late February, we were asked if we could help purchase an assortment of activity books to help create more variety and stimulation. Of course, we said yes, and the children were so excited when the books arrived.

Overcoming Obstacles to Education in Uganda

Around the world, children facing medical needs often face insurmountable obstacles to education.  In Uganda, a child who falls ill or suffers an injury often must withdraw from school. They may be in constant pain, either physical or emotional, or have to remain at home due to their illness. Sometimes a family must spend all of their money on medical treatment and medications for their sick child, leaving them with nothing for food and other basic necessities, let alone school tuition.

“Let it Grow” at Sokhem Village

When LWB first began working in rural Sokhem Village, Cambodia in 2016, over 80% of the children there suffered from chronic malnutrition. Since that time, we’ve implemented an ongoing nutrition project to ensure that every child in the village who needs additional support can receive a healthy breakfast and lunch through our Believe in Me school program.

Announcing The Sokhem Early Childhood Development Center

We’ve been counting the days until we could share some very exciting news. Our Sokhem Sibling School has evolved and will now be known as the Sokhem Early Childhood Development Center. Initially, our Sibling School was founded to face a critical need in rural Sokhem village. We learned that most of the adults in the village crossed into Thailand each day searching for work, leaving their children behind and on their own for long periods of time. Many of the children ages 6 and up were unable to attend primary school because they had to serve as full-time caregivers each day for their little sisters and brothers.
