Introducing myself and my journal: My Voice on the abandoned Children

About Me:
I am called Kangabe Edith married with 5 children plus one adopted. I am a working mother who plays so many roles when it comes to work and to care for the family.I am happy that I am woman who is educated (Masters Level). I am a catholic and I am proud of my religion. I like interacting with other women globally who have similar vision like me.

I like supporting my community when a need arises (I am not well off but I try). My only problem is that getting what to do as a mother with so many roles to play is a challenge. By networking I hope I will get some Ideas which can help me improve.

A lot is in the basket, after hearing from you and you accepting me to join you will get to know me more.

Thank you for now.

My Passions:
I have a passion for children and having enough time for my children - Getting a home business

My Challenges:
Lack of Financial support

My Vision for the Future:
To be a lead producer of nursery scholastic materials in Uganda - This project has started

My Areas of Expertise:
I fit anywhere, but give an opportunity I like business

Dear Katie,

Thank you very much first of all to accept my request and secondly to respond to my communication. Uganda's population is composed of 12 percent urban and 88 percent rural. Those living in rural areas especially young children in schools depend on the blackboard work and a word of mouth from their teachers who are also gambling to make ends meet.

My ideas is to use the knowledge i have and being in easy access to internet to design work for nursery kids who are denied that chance of getting such information. Before I embarked on this project, I first carried out a research to find out whether these children were given enough materials to use when they are at home (during weekends and holidays). I was told that the type of small books I was producing are only found in school stores if they happen to be there anyway.

I also contacted some parents and their response was very good and they told me to go a head and produce the copies. I started with a coloring book of 26 pages and those kids who managed to get copies were so excited. This was only done in urban area (Kampala). I imagine if this same idea reaches the rural areas, both teachers, parents and infants in nursery schools will be happy and this will help the children to compete favorably with urban children.

I have so far designed like ten sets including numbers, rhymes, phonics and other types which are good for the kids.However, my challenge is that I have not got funds to go a head and print more copies. So far one copy (coloring) is now out and different schools are already buying and parents too.

Thank you once again,

Edith
