The Brickworks continues to provide financial support to three community schools in the Palorinya refugee settlement in northern Uganda catering for more than 4,000 children. The schools are all performing well and their agriculture programmes have been highly successful.
This year, using a large donation from a private donor, we were able to fund a specialist Eye team from Juba to carry out 100 cataract operations to patients at the Martha Eye Clinic in Yei. This helped so many people and we plan to repeat this in 2024.
A small team from The Brickworks recently returned from Yei, South Sudan, having visited the Martha Clinic, the National Health Training Institute, several primary schools and the Bishop Allison Theological College. The team was hosted by the Diocese of Yei.
New emphasis on teacher training
The Brickworks has responded to a request from the Diocese of Yei to train more teachers. Scholarships have been awarded to 33 teachers to train at the Yei Teacher Training College or the KajoKeji Christian College.
The Brickworks treats very seriously any abuse of children, young people or vulnerable adults. It has adopted a zero tolerance policy. If you know of or suspect any inappropriate behaviour by an adult in one of our projects, please report this to our independent safeguarding adviser by email to: mailto:email@example.com . Thank you.
