Learning from Uganda

A resource for UK primary schools and early learning.

This has been an interesting and enjoyable project working with our schools in Uganda to obtain information, photographs and videos for this website. It has also had its share of frustrations and difficulties because working with a developing country we have had to work in imaginative and ingenious ways to get information back and forth. It is a credit to both sides that the project is now complete.

Children of UgandaAlthough there is much information on the web about Africa we felt we had something unique to share from our teachers and pupils in Uganda with our teachers and pupils in the UK. Our hope is that this project will enable the children in the UK to have a connection with the children in Uganda.

We would like to thank the people who have helped with the project and given encouragement.

Special thanks goes to our partners in Uganda and all who contributed to the pictures, videos and information.

Special thanks also to the students of Stockport College who helped to build the first stage of this web site: Curtis Bromiley, Ben Davidson, Sarah Thompson, Matthew Beswick, Ashley Hyman and Ryan Howarth.
