MARACHA - In Maracha’s Mundru sub county, a lot of children stay home after completing primary school. This is due to lack of school fees and also the long distances to secondary schools.
Parents are left saddled with children at home who do not have much to do.
However these parents want to change that. Through their Mundru Saemaul Undong (SMU) Group they have baked over 10,000 bricks and plan to bake 10,000 more which will be used to build a vocational school on The school will be built on land provided by the district local government , the land is close to Mundru Sub County offices.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), otherwise known as the Global Goals, are a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity. These 17 Goals build on the successes of the Millennium Development Goals, while including new areas such as climate change, economic inequality, innovation, sustainable consumption, peace and justice, among other priorities. The goals are interconnected – often the key to success on one will involve tackling issues more commonly associated with another.
These goals are also for everyone and that is why we have translated them into some of Uganda's most spoken languages. The aim of this to enable everyone in Uganda to know and understand the what the SDGs are about.
