Projects February/March 2016

Workshop for MIMI books
IMG_4942The Mimi Books Hanna Kristín launched at the elementary school in Wanteete. Caroline has this method introduced by teachers in collaboration with Amisa.

Key word signing is for people of all ages who have speech and developmental language problems from causes other than deafness. In recent years it has become apparent that the method is very useful in a multicultural environment such as kindergartens and schools. The method is language stimulating for all young children and it is more than safe to encourage parents and teachers of young children to use key word signing as a language stimulation technique that readily and surely helps to speed up the pace of language development.

For more information about this method check

The teachers will use these books in the classroom but also start thinking about their own gestures with the children and sign it. So that new books geared arise at any age and needed. All teachers were very enthusiastic. Beso Foundation has agreed with Hanna that they will report about teaching with these booklets. And will also send some pictures.

Workshop “workbook for children Think good Feel good ‘

IMG_4947In the same school was evaluated from this workshop. A large number of teachers have followed this workshop last year. And now the new teachers are also trained. A number of this year have obtained their ‘Certificate of Attendance!’ Congratulations!


Training for teachers in the ST Moses in Jinja, ‘Cognitive Behavor Training’
These teachers are trained in the workshop ‘ Cognitive Behavor Training’ . An exercise that teaches you to understand behavior better by distinguishing facts and interpretations. This training was also attended by Robertson Rainbow House of Hope. He will coached by a teacher from the UK, James Newnman to introduce the workshop ‘ workbook for children ‘Think good Feel good ‘ at Rainbow House. There is a continuous line in the support and implantation.


Thanks to generous donors, there are nearly a hundred Afripads distributed to girls and young women. This happened at Rainbow House of Hope by Peggy, the counselor. On the Victory Primary School in Kazo (Kampala) and again at the elementary school in Wanteete. The girls feel very proud with this package and can expect their monthly period with less discomfort and embarrassment.

Peggy, the counselor of Rainbow House. Just graduated in psychology. A promising talent!

At Rainbow House are also the guys involved in the explanation. This was a great success. Of course there was giggling but everyone took it seriously and know things what these girls must endure. Girls are mocked at elementary schools and bullied when they are menstruating. They cannot clean themselves himself in school, and they regularly lose blood. But that is solved for at least one year. The package contains four pads and with good use (washing and drying) can use one year.

Gifts are always be welcome so that the children can at least finish primary school without interruptions.




Afripads provides girls and young women a future

Through facebook page TOWANIKA and e-mail the action WOMEN FOR WOMEN is started and already successful!
This action aims to purchase Afripads for girls in primary school. AFRIpads is a sanitary napkin that is washable, 12-month useful, absorbent (6 to 10 hours), provided with a soft coating, environment-friendly and costs only 4 euros per Menstrual Kit.
Our foundation Towanika buys this product directly from the headquarter in Kampala and brings it in person to the schools we work with.

Meanwhile we have a commitment from an annual donation of 200 euros and many other gifts. Also an action is being organized this year by two people who manage a boardinghouse for young adults. In short, we can buy new Afripads again in February and travel to Wantetee and Kampala to support many girls, young women of sanitary napkins. For them, a luxury which is actually supposed to be a necessity of life.
