Vocational training team shares expertise with Aga KhanUniversity faculty in UgandaBy Dan Nixon Rotary International News -- 9 July 2012 Members of a vocational training team shared their expertise in nursing education with faculty at Aga Khan University’s School of Nursing and Midwifery recently. The training team, the first funded by a Rotary Foundation packaged grant, visited the campus in Kampala, Uganda, 27 February-12 March. Led by physician and Past District Governor Matthias Oladeinde Shoga, the three nurse educators from Nigeria trained their counterparts in teaching practices that promote student learning and improve The training covered research techniques, the use of anatomical models, simulated classroom situations, and how to assess students’ attitudes through body Top: Dr. Yasmin Amarsi, dean of Aga Khan “To demonstrate their acquired experience, the faculty University’s School of Nursing and Midwifery, welcomes VTT leader Matthias Oladeinde Shoga to conducted classes for students with the team in the university’s campus in Kampala, Uganda.

The Foundation entered a strategic partnership with Aga Khan University last year, creating new opportunities for Rotarians to serve in the maternal and child health area of focus. Packaged grants are available under the Foundation’s Future Vision grant model. The team also met Dr. Yasmin Amarsi, dean of the school, who describes the launch of the partnership between the university and The Rotary Foundation through the VTT as a “history-making News - Vocational training team shares expertise with Aga .
opportunity” to help improve maternal and child health in East Africa. She notes that it was particularly significant that the first VTT came to the university from another African country to forge stronger continental links and to learn from each other’s experiences. Team members also participated in a community service project sponsored by the Rotary Club of Muyenga, assisting the treatment of patients at a health clinic in Kassamu Kyali. The clinic is part of a large, sustainable Foundation grant project active in three areas of focus. It has established a clean water system, a bakery, a goat-breeding program, a vocational center where women sew dresses and uniforms for orphans and free mosquito bed nets for the community, and a solar-powered cold-chain facility that stores vaccines. The effort is sponsored by the Muyenga club and the Rotary Club of “This was a revelation -- to see a single project touching so many areas of the lives of the inhabitants,” In addition, team members conducted a prenatal and health education clinic at the Mpigi Health Center, which serves about 120,000 people in an area near Kampala.
Understanding Rotary
As a result of the VTT, team members say they have gained a better understanding of Rotary and have since become involved in service projects with their sponsor clubs. “One of the team members has shown interest in joining her sponsor club,” says Shoga. “All have been invited to join the Rotary Foundation alumni association [and] are enthusiastic about joining.” As for future contacts between the VTT and Aga Khan University, Shoga says the university’s faculty are committed to continuing to improve their skills as educators and excited to be part of opportunities “Our findings of a survey made of students and faculty, as well as recommendations of the team, have been [provided] for future use by the faculty,” says Shoga. “The VTT plans to remain connected to the nursing education faculty at Aga Khan University.” Read about The Rotary Foundation's strategic partnership with Aga KhanUniversity.

Reading this story has me absolutely inspired to become (more) active in the Rotary World.

A treat to read this article! From June 1 to June 21, 2012, I was the team leader of the second VTT to AKU, this time to Nairobi, Kenya to their School of Nursing. My four team members, all nurse educators from San Diego, California, USA, did very similar training with the faculty from AKU as well as holding a 2 day workshop for nursing faculty from all schools of nursing in the Nairobi area. Dr Yasmin Amarsi is the Dean for all three of the East African AKU Schools of Nursing so she is well known now to all of us! It would have been a wonderful time of sharing expertise and fellowship if the two teams could have met! Our experience was very similar to that of the Nigeria team and we too are planning to continue to offer support and initiate student exchange between AKU and San Diego State News - Vocational training team shares expertise with Aga .
