Jinja Educational Trust
At JET we are 100% committed to bringing quality education to all the schools we work with. Together with the school management teams and teachers, we strive for excellence and take a holistic approach to improving the learning environment at every level. The health, welfare and wellbeing of all the children and teachers are our first priority. We currently partner with 4 primary schools in the district of Jinja, Uganda, all of them serving underprivileged communities. We have seen a steady improvement in results as well as increased enrolment over the time we have worked with our schools.
The Jinja Educational Trust aims to improve the education, training and welfare of young people in Uganda so they can go on to acquire the necessary skills for a successful and fulfilling life. From support with educational supplies, capacity building and teacher training to the provision of high quality infrastructure, we work in partnership with our schools in order to see every child reach his or her full potential.
Education Programme: With guidance from educational experts, we have dedicated much of our time to building a solid foundation for our children by focusing on literacy and numeracy skills at pre-school level. Through child-centred learning using phonics and interactive Maths exercises, even before these were introduced to the Ugandan school curriculum, we have given our schools a head start. As well as on-site training, we invite all teachers to attend training and resource-making sessions at our Resource Centre, where they are also able to take IT courses. We are now extending our training from lower primary level right throughout each school. We carry out Early Learners Assessments and our own JET exams as a consistent method of tracking progress. Health Programme: A qualified paediatric nurse gives regular talks on health and hygiene at all our schools. We have provided clean drinking water and handwashing facilities at all schools and recently introduced a feeding programme.
We run a structured education programme focused upon improving the quality of education at all the schools we work with. We focus on the health and wellbeing of all our children and teachers.
Approximately 1200 children and 50 teachers at 4 partner schools in the district of Jinja, Uganda. We are sponsoring 6 deaf children at secondary level: 5 to do vocational courses in tailoring and carpentry and one following the traditional curriculum with options for vocational qualifications. In addition, we provide support for 3 children's homes which house 150 children.
