BETTER HOUSING IS THE WAY TO GO!

Our students in Uganda have been writing essays as they continue learning remotely. We are happy to share their work. Please note student work is presented in its original content.

Corona virus is one of the diseases that all people in the world talk about today. This is because of its effects.

When we left school in March, we thought that the corona virus wouldn’t last for long but up to now nothing has changed and we continue to suffer with it.

Corona virus came at a time when my father was preparing to have our house cemented by Arlington Academy of Hope through their Better Housing project. He had already collected the raw materials to do the cementing. This plan failed by of the lockdown.

We were also expecting to get solar lights from the Arlington Academy of Hope but because of the pandemic, they haven’t been able to give it to us. This has affected me in my studies as I cannot revise my books at night without good lighting. I pray that corona virus ends and they work on our house.

Meanwhile, as we wait for things to go back to normal, we shall continue using cow dung to smear and smooth the walls and floor. It is the only way to keep clean more especially during this time of corona virus.
