After nearly two years of closure because of Covid, children in Uganda are finally returning to school. But after one of the world’s longest school closures, authorities are warning at least 30% of students may never return, with some starting work, becoming pregnant or marrying early. Some classes reopened in October 2020 temporarily, but closed again in May and June of the following year. While schools were closed, there were lessons via radio, TV and newspapers and some schools provided printed materials – but these have not reached everyone and many pupils have been out of the classroom for about 22 months.
