Uganda integrates disaster risk reduction into school curriculum

Hearing the call\drum.   Thank you Uganda.  HAITI, Malawi, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Liberia next.

In the U.S. emergency management for kids for elementary and middle school.  FEMA EMI IS-100a for high school level is a start toward those first college credits.

Stepping up our ‘A Game’.  Push to K12 level as much as possible worldwide.  If only the HBCUs could agree on a general education requirement for all students.  We can and reshape our communities.

KAMPALA, 8 November 2016 – Ensuring that children understand hazards is the route to reducing their impacts. Uganda is making disaster risk education part of its curriculum in order to bring up a generation that knows how to deal with the threats that it faces.

Kind regards,
