The Forgotten People
Southwood, Sue; Kafeero, Philly
Adults Learning, v18 n10 p24-25 Jun 2007
The Quicken Trust has been working in Kabubbu since 2000. In that time it has created a primary school, a health centre and laboratory, teachers' and nurses' housing, community housing, clean water supplies, farming and work initiatives, an adult literacy centre and library, and a secondary school. Over 400 orphaned children are being educated and 2,000 patients treated each month for life-threatening illnesses. There is no publicly supplied electricity, phones or piped water. Until 2000 the villagers of Kabubbu called themselves the "Forgotten People," yet Kabubbu is only 40 minutes north of Kampala, the capital, and only one and half hours from Entebbe airport. The team had 10 days to work with the literacy teachers in Kabubbu. They planned to support them to reflect upon and improve their practice to attract and retain learners. The more successful they are, the bigger the impact on their small, largely non-literate community.
