We had lots of time to visit with our sponsor children this time round and really enjoyed spending time with them all. Rita (P5) and Gertrude (P6) from Lilly are doing really well. They were part of the group that visited Gulu and stayed in the hotel with us and Philip, Dusman and Jonny took them for a fun shopping trip to pick up school requirements. They live near Philip’s mom house so we were able to chat with them often.
We had a lovely breakfast at Acholie Inn with Anne, who is in second year of a four year law degree at University. After discussing the challenges of taking a degree with out a computer we decided to purchase her one!
Michael (S6), Opio (S6), Carol (S6) and Winnie (S1) are all at St. Henery’s in Kampala. During their holidays they came to our opening ceremony and encouraged students to work hard. Michael, Opio, Winnie and Daniel attended either Lela Obao or Palenga Primary School, so they are good role models for the younger students.
Daniel (S2) is in Gulu High School, we plan to move him with the rest of the gang in Kampala for S3.
Beatrice (P6) from Bright Valley Academy in Gulu had a chance to meet Rita and Gertrude when they came to Gulu. They were all happy to find out they would be attending the same high school in Kampala when the time comes.
