We established a computer lab for girls at their primary school; and by August there'll be new toilets and showers for teachers and Headmistress; otherwise they'll bathe with the infamous monitor lizards that infest the place:)!

Karenga, Uganda, Northern Karamoja

After we provided costumes Karenga students competed in their National Contest, hoisting our Founder on their shoulders, an African gesture of profound gratitude. The whole community participated: strung beads, measured costumes, rehearsed dance and song, all under the elders direction. An especially good time to bring JOY, since Sudanese refugees trickle in from over the hill to become students.
