Mrs Katate Gavigan spoke to student teachers about volunteering opportunities in her country and her hopes to recruit students for an initiative being encouraged by the Ugandan Government — the Children's Educational Development Fund.

Their objective for 2012 is to supply forty newly qualified or student teachers, for schools outside Kampala. They are also hoping to expand the programme to take in students from other disciplines, particularly with project management potential.
