Isaac commented on Binti Shupavu -- “Courageous Daughters”

Hi AfricAid,

This is a great solution in an effort to reduce high school drop out rates for girls, which in the end opens up opportunities for the girl in future. I'm not sure if this has been addressed already, but would you clarify on the sustainability model for the project in the long run.

Also, from your pilot, what role does the boy child in relation to girls dropping out of school, or them succeeding? Are they part of their expansion plan?

Apart from analysing success/impact based on girls who went through the program as opposed to those who did not, are there other ways to measure success or impact? While this is a great approach, in my view, it may be subjective, i.e how easy will it be to attribute the success of the girl to being part of the project?

Looking forward to read your thoughts. Do you have a contact at (Nova Academies) ? Even though they are a fulltime school, they have incorporated problem-based learning in their curriculum. Thanks

Hi carole I like your "out-of-the box" thinking on helping change the narrative and descrimination of Albinos. The pictures in your post really help visualize the idea.
I see the project really becoming successful. Have you thought of ways you could highlight the journeys and successes of your Moringa tree pilot project with the rest of the community? My guess is that this can help change the narrative and create more interest. Also a big one, how do people get to know about your organization/project in the first place?

Really looking to see this go far. All the best


Isaac commented on Reaching Out - A Community Outreach Program

Hi Fiona, this is really a great idea. I love the video, as it communicates the possiblities your centre is creating for the children in Western Uganda.

Could you share more light on ways your team has been thinking of making the project sustainable (esp when it comes to sourcing of specialized equipments) apart from goodwill support? Are there ways to get the community and Uganda people excited about being part of this, even though none of their families has a disability? It will also be great to highlight on how you help with the transition of the children back to the community after they are 17 years.

Best, Isaac
