PELI-U Covid19 response

 In response to covid-19 pandemic as PeerLink Initiative Uganda (PELI-U) we made a number of changes and adjustments. Most of our program activities closed as a safety measure for the children, youth and women that we serve. However we have continued to navigate the delicate situation and reach out to the community members that we serve in line with our different program areas. Our covid-19 response highlights include:

Sensitization of village health teams (VHTs) and provision of information, education and communication (IEC) materials in English and Rukiga. We are producing and distributing masks, liquid soap and hand sanitizer to key service providers and community members.  Provision of washing soap and guiding in the setting up of tippy taps hand washing points in households and community meeting points.

We are empowering and guiding parents/care takers to facilitate household based reading activities in households, translating story books from English to Rukiga (local area mother tongue)   and printing and distributing reading materials to households and satellite libraries. We are also lending books from the library to children, printing the National Curriculum Development Center (NCDC) harmonized and standardized self-study packages for core subjects for primary and secondary learners and supporting form six leavers to submit their applications to tertiary education institutions (universities and colleges) online.
