Location

Situation

The refugees from South Sudan who have entered North Uganda in the past three years and continue to arrive in 2018 are traumatised. The project will contribute to the capacity of Northern Uganda to provide good education to refugees, employing an innovative integration policy approved by UNHCR. Schools in N Uganda lack this capacity but Windle is addressing this challenge as the lead education agency selected by UNHCR. The project will also provide inservice training to refugee teachers.

Solution

Windle will improve the capacity of Rhino Camp High School and Ofua Secondary School in North Uganda, making use in part of the limited funds available through UNHCR and supplementing this with resources from a number of sources. This project will focus on much needed infrastructure for secondary schools in Rhino Camp Refugee Settlement and will also train refugee teachers to give them skills to use now and to take home.

  • Despite civil war, "phenomenal" project in South Sudan gets 60,000 extra children into school. Windle has seen girls' enrolment more than double in one state badly affected by conflict.
