I had the chance to visit the Railway Children Primary School in Kampala, Uganda, with a delegation of vaccine advocates with Shot@Life. With the help of funding from organizations like UNICEF, the school is a pure diamond in the rough and is making a true difference in the lives of many children – who by the way, have all been vaccinated thanks to UNICEF. On first approach, a red dirt entry way welcomed us surrounded by the school’s buildings. The buildings were built of cinder blocks and tin roofs with metal wire crossed in the open-air windows. Patches of flowers and vegetables planted by the children and teachers were outside each classroom, and painted rocks with important sanitation and HIV/AIDS messages were spotted among the gardens. At the back of the school were the bathrooms and a waterspout for hand washing that overlooked the Kampala skyline. Olivia Muhumuza, the headmistress of Railway, gave our delegation a tour of the school. About 100 children sit in each classroom, and there is more than one teacher per class. The age range of the children varies in each classroom. Some children who started school early are in the later grades, and yet there are students who are older and just starting school in the lower grades.
