SI Dunfermline have for many years supported schools in the more remote areas of Rwenzori in Uganda.
Over the last six years, the club has partnered with ROCDIC (Rwenzori Organisation for Children Living Under Difficult Circumstances) in projects to help raise the educational standard of 12 schools in the remote Kyonodo valley in Western Uganda.
SI Dunfermline recently sponsored a two day teacher training event for Primary 6 and 7 teachers of the 12 rural schools we support as part of our Rwenzori Project in Uganda. The aim was to increase the quality of the teaching and help to raise the grades achieved by pupils in the Primary Leaving Exam. A good grade enables students to enter a good secondary school.
36 teachers attended along with the regional Director of Education who thanked Soroptimists of Dunfermline for their continued support.
