Funds raised from your sponsorships will go towards educational resources for Child of Hope schools in Uganda. Last year, thanks to the amazing GAL Day fundraising efforts, we purchased much-needed sports and music equipment and toys for our Primary and Nursery schools in Mbale (click here for details).

New For 2024:

COMING SOON — This year we will be adding a new dance and song to our resources area, and new videos will be available.

Event Highlights:

Immerse in Ugandan Culture: From learning traditional Ugandan dances to speaking in Kiswahili - Give and Learn Day promises a culturally immersive experience going beyond the classroom.

Sponsorship for Learning: By asking your pupils to get sponsored for participating in Give and Learn Day, you contribute to a powerful cause. Your support helps underprivileged Ugandan children access education.

Comprehensive Lesson Plans: Thoughtfully crafted plans cover various subjects and age groups, ensuring your students engage with meaningful content throughout the day.

Hands-On Activities: From making necklaces out of paper to using plants to solve maths problems - students will delve into hands-on activities that promote creativity, teamwork, and cultural appreciation.

Technology-Free Learning: Give and Learn Day encourages students to rediscover the joy of learning without the distractions of modern technology. It's a day of genuine connections and real-world experiences.


Lessons and Resources

Primary lessons are broken down into EYFS, KS1 and KS2, with video instructions included.

We do not have many resources to help teach at Child of Hope, so no expensive equipment will be required! The teachers try to use objects found in the environment to support teaching, as well as games, songs, dance and oral storytelling. Examples and instructions are clearly laid out in the Give and Learn Day resource section (click below).

How do we join in?

Please decide on a date, and let us know that your school will be participating on the form below. Have fun, and don’t forget to send us any donations collected on the day!

*Please note that we cannot accept any donations of physical items due to the transportation costs involved in sending items to Uganda. All money raised will go towards resources, equipment and the education of Child of Hope children in our schools in Uganda.
