Include indigenous languages in the curriculum

Ugandan indigenous languages are under threat with the government planning to scrap their study at the O level of education.  Experts say that one of the reasons why Ugandans are struggling to read and even learn anything in class is because of the fact that there are many children that do not understand the languages they are taught in and the teachers equally do not fully understand these languages.


This campaign is petitioning the Speaker of Parliament against agreeing to this scrapping of indigenous languages. We write this petition in the spirit of the increasing global realization of the importance of multiculturalism and the revival of indigenous languages and cultures championed by the United Nations and the African Union.
