They need to be given various training in classroom management and control for effective teaching and learning activities. Therefore, the most needful training can simply includes: psycho-social training to handle children with trauma and other related cases, Secondly training on the pedagogical skills to help them vary their methods or strategies of teaching for the visible learning to be felt and seen in schools. Thirdly, they need to trained on the guidance and counselling as well for the well being of both the teachers themselves and the children also, becuase they all had one thing in common, the status of being refugee.


The immediate beneficieries, here will be definately nobody else, but the refugee students in the Refugees schools,and their teachers as well. And in this case, it's a two way trafic in the really senses.


This idea can be easily test quick in low cost way. by sufficient provision of the scholastic materials that can probably gear towards enhancing the practicability of the visible learning that may aid in improving and effecting the performances of the learners the end of the course. And this can be done through giving evaluation test to checked on the progress of the learners.


I have honestly received a valuable feedback from the learners or the beneficiaries who similarly feel that, there is a huge need to supplied enough learning resources for quality learning that can attract many to enrolled in the existing local institution within their reached.

I needed the expertise to help them out very promptly, if possible. And this can be possible through partnership.


  • Yes, and I am looking for a partner working with refugee communities to implement this idea.

Dear Vincent,
Thanks for this great work, I'm also a refugee in Uganda and I'm so happy to see that there are refugees who are now taking up leadership roles in their communities in order to address the challenges faced by other. Please keep it up and encourage other refugees to be providers of solutions to their problems rather than looking and waiting for solutions to come from Geneva.

Thanks so much, Luke Pecos,

We in the really sense, should be able to source for doable solutions to our own problems, because we know our needs and challenges more than any other outsider who did not expose as much as we are, to the pains, trauma and the continuous suffering we encounter in life. I will keep up doing the advocacy in terms of proposing solutions to our problems. Pass my regards to all fellow refugees in Ugandan. Thank a lot.

Hi Vincent,
Great to see your enthusiasm and spirit for serving the refugees. I am part of team PISE, have a look at our project ( ), We are also planning to expand the project to various countries like Africa, Syria once we have a test run of 3-4 months period.
Through TEC, we can link you up with Volunteers who will provide you with educational training via Skype or our TEC platform which is yet to be developed. We can even setup a TEC and provide education to children in African refugee camps, we will have adjust certain things but I can see TEC will adapt great in such an Environment.
Looking forward to hear your thoughts.
Alamgir Khan,
Director PISE
