“We are especially excited about this theme because it will feature fascinating yet challenging activities (in a fun way) because all attendees will be rocking masquerade masks. We can’t wait to feel and experience the sense of realisation and satisfaction at the end of the event,” Peninnah Nabirye, the Head of Fundraising and Partnerships at 4040 hints at what to expect.

Participation in #4040Night

Participants interested in the quiz are encouraged to register quiz teams of up to 10 members, maximum. The top 3 winners of the quiz receive amazing prizes that are generously offered by the Foundation’s partners.

“As an extremely competitive quiz team, we always look forward to 4040 quizzes because nothing gives us pleasure more than knowing that we are competing and winning for charity. Who said charity can’t be fun?” Emmanuel Luyinda, a member of Team Crixus, one of the consistent quiz teams of the night.

Teams can be registered by calling or texting 4040 on 0776840407/0757140407. You can also participate as an individual over music, a drink, or network with other people at the event.

The Angaza Resource Centre and how it will bridge educational gaps
The resource centre will work to bridge gaps in formal education and is a derivative of the Angaza Programme, which teaches children invaluable life skills both in and out of school, helping them to unleash their full potential. The programme has already been successfully implemented in different schools, such as Quentin Junior School, Merowa Junior School, Boston Junior School, and Makindye Community Nursery and Primary School, all located in Makindye

The centre will avail resources such as textbooks, story books, games and computers and other materials that support and facilitate better learning outcomes for children while in school, as well as provide a safe space for children to play and interact with their peers.

It will also be utilised to upskill teachers from community schools with training in learner-centred education, resource-making, inclusivity and leadership.

Gloria Mbabazi, the Angaza Resource Centre project lead, says the Foundation is grateful for the generosity and support of partners, volunteers and friends for supporting the establishment of the first Angaza Resource Centre.

She noted that whereas the Angaza Resource Centre was opened on 1st July, there is still a need to complete payment of the construction costs, stock up the library and computer lab, acquire other learning aids such as games and puzzles, as well as meet the day to day operational costs of the Centre.

Proceeds from #4040Night will support the Foundation to procure some of these materials that are necessary for the effective operation of the centre.

4040 is a volunteer-based non-profit organisation that provides literacy and learning resources to vulnerable children and underserved communities as a means of increasing enrolment, retention and improving access to quality learning for all children.

Since its inception in 2012, the Foundation has implemented several interventions reaching and impacting over 5,000 children across the country.
