2. What was done + Strengths
Together with all teachers living in the Kimonyi Sector (where HROC is located) is a group that is known as a “Command Post”. They are assigned to sensitize people about the prevention of Covid-19, help people in the community, and check if they are following the guidelines.
HROC has organized a campaign, with all the teachers and headmasters, and with the help of the SEO, who is also a HROC facilitator. The campaign was intended to help students who are now home due to covid-19, together with their parents/caregivers, by listening to them, and talking to them about going back to school in September.
Kimonyi Sector is a village area, so people are affected by covid-19 in one way or another. Most of them survive from daily work, but it is now hard to find jobs, to earn money to feed their children…
Many parents and caregivers have decided to send their children to the road and small markets to sell small things so that they are able to buy food to cook. Most of the kids are on the road, wearing their uniforms and sugar canes (which are very cheap), as this is what their parents can afford.
Teachers are divided into groups, going house by house where students live, talking to them, listening to them, and getting to know what their plans are for the coming months, especially in regard to going back to school.
