Tour of Kajjansi Progressive Senior Secondary School

Posted on January 28, 2016 at 1:25 AM

While Change The Truth’s Team 9 was visiting SMK last month, we had the opportunity to take a school tour of Kajjansi Progressive Senior Secondary School. This experience is rewarding for both visitors and students. Visitors get the rare opportunity to have complete access to school grounds, as the school is officially closed for holidays. CTT-sponsored students attending Progressive have the unique opportunity to talk about their school, personal studies, daily schedule, and general life as a Secondary student here in Uganda. Visitors never fail to walk away from this school tour without a greater appreciation for the sponsorship supports provided by CTT. As well, they have a growing respect for Ugandan students’ diligence, determination and hard work, not to mention a better appreciation for the educational opportunities freely provided in America.

 

During this tour Scovia, one of CTT’s Secondary students, brought along a camera. She does not attend Progressive, but I thought she beautifully captured the essence and beauty of the school. One of the images captures a dormitory which caught fire this past term, as several of the students mentioned in their sponsor letters. It was a blessing that everyone was in a class at the time, but the building and all property inside was a total loss.
