    On Uganda news! It was announced on November 21 (2016) that Uganda primary schools will provide early sex education to students and cover the topic of HIV/AIDS. Nyaka Primary School’s Head Teacher, Annet Ahumuza, led the way to push for the adoption of this curriculum addition, all in the name of preventing early pregnancy and the contraction of HIV/AIDS. Listen to these new clips on Uganda radio stations, up to the news story’s conclusion. We are proud of our teachers who have been behind this initiative, and for the country understanding that our young students will benefit from this crucial subject matter. The interviewers released this story in time for CORNERSTONE’s upcoming World Premiere in Kampala on December 1 (2016).
