NEWS UPDATES

GENDER EYE ISSUE 1 - 2017

Welcome to the first issue of the Gender Eye for the year 2017 on sharing our experiences on promoting girls' education and gender equality in education.  The Theme for this issue is Mainstreaming Gender in Education: Sharing our Experiences. 

For the period January to Aprils, our focus has been on creating a positive and supportive learning environment. We have engaged communities through media and community dialogues on gender and equity aspects that are critical for improving the performance of the education sector. Key among these include safe learning environment, menstrual hygiene management and school feeding. At the schools level, attention has been put on mentorship and livelihood programs, formation of school clubs to support life skills among learners.  We have also engaged district and national level stakeholders on gender responsive planning, gender and equity budgeting and generating sex and gender disaggregated data. 

It is important to note that Karamoja region still lags behind other regions as far education is concerned. The Ministry of Education and Sports with the support of Irish Aid and UNICEF has embarked on Promoting Access to Quality and Equitable Education for Karamoja Children Project (PAQEEKC) which was officially launched on March 30, 2017 by the Hon. Rosemary Nansubuga Senninde, Minister of State for

Primary Education. We hope that the implementation of this project will enable the Education Sector to deal with the socio-cultural practices that continue to undermine education outcomes as well as improve education outcomes in Karamoja. 

I take this opportunity to welcome our new leaders- Mr. Kakooza Alex, Permanent Secretary and Mr. Kibenge. A. David, Under Secretary, Ministry of Education and Sports. 

I call upon all stakeholders in the Education Sector to take deliberate efforts to ensure a Safe Learning Environment for all our children especially the girls and special needs children. I also call upon the children to break the silence, report all cases of violence and seek support from peers, teachers, parents and leaders. I take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to our Development Partners who generously support our programmes on gender equality, girls' education and safe learning environment. Special thanks go to Irish Aid and UNICEF for the continued support to promoting education in Karamoja region, USAID/RTI/LARA for supporting positive and supportive learning environment.
