Nambi Sseppuuya Community Resource Centre

Exciting Times at the Resource Centre

Posted by Kristopher Schmitz on Thursday, February 17, 2011


The centre has been alive with activity during the past month. The large room, which was dirt floor and bare bricks when Brent and Kris arrived, has now been used for HIV/AIDS and hygiene information sessions, English classes for the adults in the community and school visits.  Our information sessions both attracted over 100 people while the two school visits had 90 students each.  Thank you once again to everyone who contributed to the completion of this room.  We hope this shows that there was a need for this type of service in the community, and now that need is being met.  One gentleman who came for the English classes was extremely excited.  He had rode his bike for about 30 minutes to visit the centre, and told us that one day was not enough and that he would be coming every day!  We have instituted a monthly and weekly schedule to ensure that we are meeting all of the objectives of the centre and the needs of the community.  We have also started community evaluation regarding the information sessions we have had and what people would like to cover in the future.  Slowly we are starting to see people come and visit the centre on a more regular basis.  Our new space has also allowed us to reorganize the book room giving users more access to a wonderful World Book Encyclopaedia.  It also allowed for the 90 P6 students who visited us yesterday to take part in an orientation scavenger hunt.  February is agriculture month at the centre and we are having an information session on the 27th.  We hope to get a local facilitator to help us explain some successful agricultural strategies and how to get small local grants for agricultural projects.  Thank you once again for your support and donations and we update again soon!
