Our Innovations

Vocationalisation Of Secondary Education

Besides the mainstream education structures, WIU has “vocationalised” secondary education. Through this initiative, students attain vocational skills alongside secondary education.  As a result, the students leave secondary education equipped with entrepreneurial skills that they can put to use. Those that may drop out of school leave with professional qualifications awarded by the Directorate of Industrial Training (DIT).

Double Shift Schooling System

WIU is implementing the Double Shift Schooling System (DSSS) in 27 primary schools within Kyangwali, Imvepi, Rhino Camp, Palabeck-Lamwo, Palorinya-Obongi and Nakivale reaching out to 56,102 learners. The Double Shift School System (DSSS) is an approach where a school has two shifts each day, with one group of learners -studying early in the day and a second group later in the afternoon to reduce overcrowding in classrooms. This has expanded access to education by carefully and equitably sharing available resources among a larger group of learners. It has enabled a higher transition and absorption of students into primary education, ensuring that fewer refugee children are left behind.
