Usha Silai School Program

  • The Usha Silai School Program is a program that focuses on educating the children of the women who are working in the garment industry. The purpose of this education is to teach them how to be self-sufficient so that they can eventually earn an income and work for themselves in the future. During the program, the children get the opportunity to learn about different things including commerce, mathematics, science, and many more subjects. They also get to meet different people that have a positive impact on their lives. During their time at the Silai School, the children also learn about their own culture and their family background as well.
  • The work of the Silai School is to bring out the best in the children so that they can one day become leaders in the future. During the program, the children are encouraged to do different types of exercises which aim to strengthen their bodies, minds, and spirits. The kids are taught that physical exercise is a necessary part of life that will help them increase their energy levels. In addition, they are also taught about the values that are needed in society so that they can develop their own values.
  • Another important purpose of the Usha Silai School is to help the children improve their social skills. The work of the program aims to help the children adjust to their surroundings, both from within and outside the confines of the Silai school. The students are taught to solve conflicts which can usually arise in their daily lives. They are also taught how to deal with other people. They are also taught how to negotiate and how to share the wealth of others. This is something that many people do not understand in their everyday lives.

The children of Usha Silai School take up the three-day stay on the shores of Lake Natthi to learn about the nature, culture and history of the community and the place where they are staying. They also interact with native artisans and make a visit to the village and meet the people living there. They learn about life from the Acholi families to the artisans to the different kinds of local cuisine. The children are also given the opportunity to do crafts and earn some money.
 
The children enjoy their stay at the camp and the learning experience that they get while at the camp. The children are taught how to be responsible for themselves by being able to make their own choices. The children are also encouraged to participate in community activities and soothe the elders when they want to be excused from the festivities. The children come back from the camp refreshed and encouraged and ready to try to move on to higher levels of learning.
 
The children who are enrolled in the Usha Silai School Program have an incredible experience. This is an enrichment program for the kids and a platform for them to be exposed to many different ideas and approaches.

The children learn about concepts such as respect, responsibility, and strong moral values that are essential for their growth as human beings.

The Usha Silai School Program is a partnership program between the Acholi people and the government. It provides opportunities for the young girls to realize their dreams of education and in turn for the children to have access to education. The program has been implemented with the participation of the parents and children and therefore the government is very aware of the needs of the students and their parents. The parents play a very important role in the success of the program as they need to have a firm and open mind in order to make the program successful.
 
The Usha Silai School Program will continue to grow in the coming years. The city administration is committed to ensure that the students have access to all the facilities that the community has to offer. This is a program that can bring much-needed attention to the children's needs and give them the opportunity to develop a strong social network. The children are now learning the value of community and the importance of participation in order to flourish in life.
 
This is not just a vacation trip to Lake Natthi. This is a learning opportunity for the children who are in the training camp to be able to achieve their goals of education and development.
