In the summer holidays Charlotte, one of our primary school teachers went to Uganda on a sponsored placement through BlueSky Education and charity CRANE and their partner VIVA. VIVA provides education for marginalised girls in Kampala, Uganda.

 CRANE has 20 Creative Learning Centres, which provide 'catch-up learning' for the girls in maths and English to enable them to re-enter mainstream schools. Charlotte's role was to teach teachers from the project, in particular focusing on differentiating lessons and meeting the needs of children with special educational needs. See the teachers signing 'happy' in a sign language workshop below. Charlotte had a rewarding time in Uganda and will feedback her experience in one of our training days later in the year.
