Harriet Ondoro is a teacher at Kisomere Primary School in Buliisa, Uganda, who has been trained as one of the patrons of the buddy club.
“Everyone has been very supportive in the starting of the buddy club. We have since trained 87 buddies, with each older buddy having two young ones to take care of. It is very important to help the young ones, since this is the foundation of their education and future. It makes them either like school and progress or hate school and risk dropping out.”
