The Margots arrive!

Margot (Ssubi Director) and her family arrived in Uganda this morning and after a very short stop at their hotel were quickly whisked to a ceremony at Lilly Kindergarten and Primary School.  Last year Margot and Rick were our first volunteers to come and help build on site, they also donated solar lights to the schools Ssubi supports.
Unfortunately Rick is no long with us and today we paid tribute by inserting a plaque in his honor on the building he helped to construct. The children performed for us with traditional dances and Margot and family painted the plaque’s frame.  Tomorrow we head back up to Gulu to visit and help complete the Richard Theriault Memorial Library as well as the teacher accommodations.
