Scorecard Program Provides a Platform for Parents to be School Leaders

Irene Mirembe is a 50 year old, energetic mother of 7 children. Irene is a person who socializes with everyone—pupils, teachers, cooks, to name a few—and while she, herself, dropped out of school during third grade because of the political insurgency, Irene is committed to ensuring her children attend school.

She believes that education is the path to making a difference in your community.

Already an active member of her children’s school’s School Management Committee, Irene believes in the power of communities coming together to address their shared challenges. It is unsurprising then, that the introduction of the Scorecard Program at her children’s school piqued her interest, as well.

As a member of the Scorecard Committee, Irene has deepened her knowledge of her community, and developed strong relationships with other community leaders.
