 OPERATION FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS THROUGH INTENSIVE STUDENTS SUPPORT

Mathematics has been ranked the worst performed subject in Uganda at both primary school, according to NAPE report (2012). Pupilís performance has eroded over the past years creating huge setback in the struggle for EFA (Education for All); the global strategy to realize the rural poor development in Sub Sahara Africa. To achieve the EFA (Education for All), OASIS; a community based educational development organization in Gulu together with Gulu District Local Government have started a Mathematics video lesson development project in partnership, with the University of the Sacred Heart (USH).

Mr. John Bosco Nyeko; the project coordinator says that this project is intended to improve academic performance of pupils by preparing module lessons recorded on multi-media discs for distribution and subsequent review by the pupils to enhance understanding of competences and concepts in the curriculum.

and also to provide a better alternative use of television sets that are currently steaming with unproductive and often violent and pornographic materials which promote delinquency in the young children and are source of poor performance.

OASISS started as a film translations project (Luo Champions) translating religious, educative and entertaining movies into luo for the people of Acholi community, majorly the children as a means of therapy against the post traumatic stress disorders (PTSD)
