Share Uganda

Intending to deliver an educational programme about health inequality of minority ethnic groups in local schools, youth organisations and community facilities and celebrate different cultures across Northern Ireland, Share Uganda sought funding towards facilitator fees over a 25 week period.  Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the face-to-face delivery in schools was postponed.  But Share Uganda connected with a number of school teachers enabling them to investigate and agree how they can deliver information remotely online via Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Facebook live and Skype.  These activities will be used within schools as part of the coursework for term 2 and 3 until the project will [hopefully] be picked up again and offered in schools in September/October.  A grant of £800 from The Clothworkers’ NI Fund was therefore approved, to ensure ongoing work throughout the pandemic.
