June Updates

The Angaza Resource Centre’s 1st anniversary

On 1st July 2023, we launched the Angaza Resource Centre in Kibuli to bridge educational gaps in the area, particularly for underserved schools which lack facilities such as computer labs, libraries and other resources that support and promote quality learning.

We are incredibly proud to celebrate the first anniversary of the Centre as a much needed safe space that has availed  resources and training for children and teachers.

Here are some numbers:

Every week, 214 children utilise the Centre.

10 teachers have received basic computer literacy training.

We have hosted  three teacher trainings in phonics, Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) and resource making for 35 teachers. The ARC has also conducted two holiday programmes for youth in the Kibuli area.

All the above efforts have improved learning outcomes for children and diversified the methods of session delivery by teachers in the classroom.

4040 Partner Brunch

On 2nd June 2024, we hosted some of our partners at Endiro Coffee, Nakasero to share updates, celebrate milestones and discuss the future.

These special guests included individuals who make monthly donations, companies which support 4040 in kind and our long term supporters.

Our partners shared feedback that we are implementing to improve our programmes and operations.

Our next engagement will bring our Programme partners in one room as we evaluate progress and make strategic plans.

The Foundation is immensely grateful to each individual and entity that partners with us. Your contributions to 4040 are immeasurable.

We are only able to do this important work because of YOU!

Angaza Outreach Programme Highlights

On 28th June 2024, we hosted individuals from different professions including doctors, engineers, teachers, lawyers and architects to share about their careers and inspire the children.

It was exciting for the children to interact  with the people they dream of becoming in future.

Their questions were well thought through,  with memorable engagement during the sessions.

We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our support system for showing up and leaving the learners inspired.

4040 Volunteers join Boundless Corps

Our partner, Boundless Minds provided 5 placements for our volunteers to receive work readiness skills, one on one mentorship, gain technical skills and get connected to professional networks.

We are grateful for the opportunity and excited for the volunteers’ growth.

Volunteers of the month

Speaking of our volunteers, we are delighted to celebrate Katumba Ali from the Angaza Resource Centre Department and Jonathan Mutungi from the Angaza Outreach Programme as our volunteers of the month.

You deliver above and beyond and 4040 is better for it.

Congratulations!
