Kasese United Humanist Association Library has received a mega donation of text books, magazines and journals from Books Abroad Organization based in the UK.


The donated books covers a range of subjects ranging from fiction books, children books, Geography, Home economics, History, Science, Maths and free thought content literature. About 26 boxes full of literature was received by the school director who had to collect the consignment on 4th.October in Kampala from the Uganda National Library Association offices on Buganda road in Kampala.


Kasese United Humanist Association is a community library stocking a variety of readable materials which are accessed freely to the general public and is entirely run and managed by Kasese United Humanist Association.


Kasese United Humanist Association Library was assigned a task by Books Abroad UK to deliver a number of donated books to other 2 schools based in Kasese namely Rwenzori Vocational Institute and Fair Earth Foundation which runs an orphanage.


As Kasese United Humanist Association runs a school project, extra books fit for the children were passed over to the school to assist the children in acting as reference and learning materials .


Both KUHA and KHPS are so happy to receive this book donation  and many thanks to BOOKS ABROAD ORGANIZATION for supporting us. We are confident that these books will widen the knowledge of the Ugandan people in our efforts of fighting the battle of poverty, ignorance, disease and the high levels of belief in magic and superstition.

Chicken coop construction at KHPS

Posted by Bwambale Robert on July 14, 2012 at 4:25 PM Comments comments (1)

The Godless Poutine,a friend of Kasese Humanist Primary School has launched the Chicken Project which is going to be in two phases namely Phase 1 and Phase 2.

Phase 1 which has been launched today 14th July 2012 involves initial preparations to construct a chicken coop at the school and a fundraiser campaign has started. Construction exercise is scheduled to commence after September 1st upon funds availability. A total of $1200 is needed to put in place a chicken coop that is likely to accomodate a sizeable number chicken to provide eggs to children at Kasese Humanist Primary School.

 

Phase 2 will straight away commence upon completion of the chicken coop and this is going to be after Septermber 1st this year.

 

As the school totally embrace reason and skeptical minds, a better nutrition is very necessary and we can try achieve this by giving an egg or two to our children and the staffs at the school during breakfast time. It should be noted with concern that at the school we have high cases of malnourishment as we mostly serve corn meal porridge as breakfast but with no accompaniments, when it comes to lunch time in most cases we serve corn meal (Posho) and beans, once in a while meat with cassava flour, potatoes with some greens.

The chicken project will also allow our children to learn new methods of rearing chicken and poultry farming. We shall have broken the record here where people think that education takes only in the classroom.

This project will act as a demonstration to people in our community to acquire new technologies of how a farmer can carry on a meaningful venture utilising a small piece of land space for an activity that can pay if done correctly.

The project will offer extra income to the school from the sale of excess eggs which funds will assist the school in meeting some of its other financial needs and other school commitments.

The Godless Poutine, a long time friend of the school has set in place a fundraiser to mobilise funds to construct the chicken coup and to equip, run the chicken project at KHPS. I am encouraging friends and well wishers of Kasese Humanist Primary School to donate generously to this cause, any amount donated is very beneficial in creating change.

Thank you very much in supporting the Chicken Coop Construction at KHPS. With science,we can progress.

The visitors arrived at the school at 2:00 PM, headed straight to the Head Teachers Office,signed the visitors Book and were moved around the school, the visitors visited the computer room and the KUHA Office which houses the Office of the School Director & the Bursars' Office. The school is located in railway village in Kasese Municipality.

Computer lessons begins at KHPS

Posted by Bwambale Robert on May 18, 2012 at 5:40 AM Comments comments (4)

In an effort to expose the children to the information era, Kasese Humanist Primary School has begun conducting computer lessons to its children who are in Grade 4, Grade 5, Grade 6 and Grade 7. The lessons are aimed to equip the children with introductory information on the computer, its uses, typingskills, creating documents, the use of the internet plus the all relevant resources on Internet.

The lessons are being conducted by a US National volunteering at the schoolcalled Daniel Reid Loving who is already with us for 3 months that is up to theclose of this second term.

Daniel was received in Uganda on 11th May 2012 at Entebbe International Airport by the School Director of Kasese Humanist Primary School Mr Bwambale Robert and the two went straight to Kasese on the same day.

The Volunteer came in with 3 Laptop Computers as a his personal donation to the Computer Class and the mangement of Kasese United Humanist Association also donated a Computer which brings the total computers we have in the Computer class to 4. We still require more computers such that atleast 3 children can use a computer in a classroom as on average we are budgeting for close to 30 children in a normal class room. The Computer room still lacks seats, tables and the school management is looking for ways of ensuring its fully furnished.

Computer lessons kicked off on Monday 14th May and Daniel has shown a good impression by conducting these lessons in a professional way. The Computer lessons have been placed on the school Time Table and both the Teachers and theChildren are undergoing times of study and i am optimistic, Computer Educationat the school will make both the teachers and the students attain basic skills in computer use.

Plans are underway to also have these computers get a wireless internet connection such that in the course of study, the children can be able to explore the world further, be in position to connect to different people especially connecting classrooms through eLearning, Chatting online and accessing online educational resources.

For any computer donations to the school,contact the school project Director on email [email protected]


 

Pencils from Pinchbeck Elementary School arrives

Posted by Bwambale Robert on April 26, 2012 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

Kasese Humanist Primary School management is happy to inform the world that it has received a donation of  800 pencils plus 3 sharpeners which were mailed to the school via the postal system. The pencils were mobilized by the Rays Reaching Out group comprising of young children,boys and girls aged between 5 – 13 years studying at Pinchbeck Elementary School based in Henrico City in the State of  Virginia  in the United States.

The pencils are going to be distributed to the children at Kasese Humanist Primary School in their class works. The management and Staff of Kasese Humanist Primary School wishes to extend their sincere thanks to these young children at Pinchbeck Elementary School for extending their support to our school as this will bring smiles to the children at our school. This is a very big boost as most of our children encounter hardships in possessing the writing tools which is a basic requirement to be possessed by any learner. Most of the parents and guardians sometimes fails to buy scholastics to their children.

Special thanksgoes  to Michelle West  who is a Teacher at Pinchbeck Elementary School for spearheading this whole exercise through constant communications and mailing the package to us, I also thank Maria Vicky who leads the Pencil Project who connected me to Michelle.

Right now the school closed for a short holiday which is lasting for 3 weeks and the school reopens on 14th May 2012 forSecond Term and the children will make use of the donated pencils which are estimated  to be used throughout the whole of the term and perhaps Third Term.

I am extending my sincere thanks to all Friends and Welwishers of Kasese Humanist School for picking the interest to keep donating to the KUHA SCHOOL PROJECT.

I end by wishing all the Children at Pinchbeck ElementarySchool a wonderful time and I remain looking forward for a mutual cooperationbetween the two school.

Yours in service,

Bwambale Robert
