#Uganda #31years - national exam results UCE (O' Level)

In 2013, kids from my home Bugisu did very badly on the PLE (national Primary Leaving Exams) like you have no idea.

Instead of lashing out at the exams which I hate, I talked to a teacher. Karim Nanyiri teaches English Literature at Mbale S.S. He has a bachelor in education, a Masters in Education and a Masters in Linguistics. I asked him why our people had failed.

Karim suggested that we set up tutoring to prepare kids for national exams. I had been previously involved in education by supplying yearly all school supplies to Bududa PS.

I followed Karim's idea and we set up 3 tutoring centres in Bugisu.

Karim and Sulaiti ran one. My nephew Mwenyi ran the one in Bududa.  We wanted to see results from if kids were tutored.

Ladies and gentlemen, numbers do not lie. Mbale S.S scored well.

St. Mary's College (former Elgon High School),
Wanale View SS,

[31/01, 3:35 p.m.] Karim: Mulembe yaya.
[31/01, 3:36 p.m.] Karim: Ever since we did our tutorials up in Bukonde, Bumalunda Primary School has maintained Division One posting.
[31/01, 3:37 p.m.] Karim: They appreciated our efforts and spirit.
[31/01, 3:37 p.m.] Karim: They still appreciate.

THIS IS HOW WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE. The tutors were all volunteers. The teaching rooms were from the school or district.

We cannot lament about kids doing badly if we do not invest in education.  Museveni is one person.  We are many and can give of us.
