Thank you so much for all the support you have given to JET over the last year, we have had to spend our time and money differently to how we had imagined at the start of 2020. We have had to put on hold some of our rebuilding projects and educational resourcing to prioritise the health and welfare of the children and staff in our schools and orphanages. Your generosity and kindness is much appreciated and never more valuable than in the last few months.
These times have been difficult for us all, and at JET we have tried to move with the ever changing challenges as they have presented themselves. With such an excellent team on the ground we have been able to keep in constant contact with our schools and orphanages. They have alerted us to issues facing the schools, kept us up to date with government guidelines and watched over the orphanages. This is enabling us to work alongside them as we try to navigate the best way forwards together.
Lockdown happened very quickly in Uganda and although the children all returned home to either their orphanages or families many teachers were stranded far from home and without pay. Our immediate concern was to ensure they had food and they felt supported.
Locally sourced, delivered and overseen by our team. We could also support the local economy at the same time. Everything was carefully managed and quietly delivered to the schools so they could organise distribution to their community.
