Congratulations to Lela Obaro and Palenga Primary School’s in Gulu for the four first grades achieved in national primary seven exams. This is a fabulous accomplishment for Northern Uganda and we are very proud of both schools. And as promised, Winnie, the top girl from Palenga Primary School will be sponsored to attend secondary school in Kampala. Dusman is currently arranging for Winnie to attend the same school as the other sponsor children from Gulu. We look forward to hearing more of your successes Winnie.

Beatrice, one of our sponsor children in Gulu is now in Primary 6. She has been supported by Ssubi since Primary 2 and continues to do well in school. Beatrice is rather shy but is also very appreciative of The Ssubi Foundation. Last year Beatrice gave a very moving speech at our opening ceremony in front of hundreds of people and the deputy speaker of parliament.
Some exciting news for Lilly Kindergarden and Primary School in Kampala Uganda, Amiee and Charlotte, 2 volunteers whom visited the school numerous times since 2010 have successfully established Lilly-Uganda a UK based charity with a goal of providing the orphans staying at Lilly with an opportunity to attend Secondary School. This is was wonderful news and addresses a serious short coming for the children as they graduate from Lilly in Primary 7. Only 20% of school aged children go on and attend secondary school, often the costs are prohibitive. Way to go Lilly-Uganda. You can follow along with their success and some of the children’s experience by visiting their Facebook site. The Ssubi Foundation will also continue to work with Lilly Primary School as well, including sponsor support for Rita and Gertrude.
