Thank you STAR EcoWorks!

STAR EcoWorks has donated a solar lantern and cell phone charger to our silent auction. You can bid on this lovely item, perfect for camping at our fundraiser on June 5th at Hotel Arts. Over the years STAR EcoWorks has generously donated numerous solar lantern to the schools we support in northern Uganda. Last year we found a number of the older lanterns and retrofitted them with cell phone chargers. Image, the schools were still using the lanterns two to five years later.

The Rwot Rubanga Lakica Women’s Group (RRLWG) recently provided us with an update of the Ssubi funded training program they are facilitating. To date RRLWG has trained six womens groups through our initiative, including sessions on village savings and loans concepts, guiding rules and regulations for group governance, registration process, record keeping and group vision. The Ssubi Foundation would like to continue to support the training program over the next year, including return visits to document success, changes and additional training needs.

More sand please!

Dusman was recently in Gulu visiting the playgrounds we installed this summer and topped both up with fresh sand. School was out, so the playgrounds were less busy making the job easier.
