Are our children learning in the lock-down?

The Government of Uganda has announced that, schools will remain closed until such a time when C-19 subsides or a permanent solution is found. Meanwhile, children have been told to access lessons through their radios and Televisions. Aware of the 98% challenges associated with possession of a communication gadget, electricity/ power, timing of the lessons, subscription to Televisions; we are not sure whether the available 2% access is inclusive of learners with Disabilities.

In July 2020, ICD UGANDA will embark on a Rapid Assessment Study to establish whether learners with disabilities are accessing and utilisng the media-based curriculum. Join us to make a noble contribution towards inclusive policy development in the region. Please get in touch with us by emailing:
