E-Readers changes the reading lifestyle of rural Children

Lisa( Intern) from Germany  training children 
 Nakaseke Community Library is  among the five (5) selected  Libraries in  Uganda to benefit from the E-Reader Project. So far  20 e-readers have been  received  to help the Library to reach out to marginalized Schools especially in far and hard to reach areas.

About 295 Children have acquired the basic skills in using the e-readers and they  use the e-reader  with little support . Children find them very interactive and enjoyable. The e-readers  contains beautiful African Stories  and subjects materials  like Mathematics, English , Science and Social Studies  and many other literature.

The Library has Trained  25 Teacher from  different Schools on how to utilize the e-readers to enhance their teaching skills. We have also worked out an Outreach Program to cover many schools among them they include;
Nakaseke parents School
Exodus P/S
Raymond from Exodus P/S  using the e-reader
Green Valley P/S
Kasagga P/S
Kiziba RC
Gods Hope P/S
Mifunya P/S

However, our target  this year is to reach out to 15 primary Schools.

Maize the Golden Food and Cash Crop

Maize is said to be introduced in Uganda in 1861 and by 1900 was already an established crop. The World Bank estimates that there are about 1.3 million ha. of land suitable for maize production. The major point here is how much do you know about this golden food / cash crop from the garden to the market.

SEATINI -Uganda will be having a Radio talk show on Monday on Radio Nakaseke102.9fm from 5-6pm to create awareness to residents in Nakaseke District about the importance of the maize standards and the benefits of compliance with set standards http://www.seatiniuganda.org/ You can forward your questions about Maize in advance on our facebook page www.facebook.com/nakasekecommunityradio
