We recently visited Teddie Primary School in Amuru District Northern, Uganda. This school is special to Silverado Oil Tools as Jordan and Hollie helped us built it:) It was tough getting there as the regular road is out. But we made it and were thrilled to see the clean conditions at the school and efforts of the teaching staff. They are keen for a few more classrooms in the future. Oh and we passed along the donated Saucony shoes to PE teachers.

Philip, Dusman and John recently attended a training session with the Rwot Rabanga Lakica Womens Group (RRLWG) in Gulu, Northern Uganda. Each group they train now receives 3 training sessions and an evaluation/assessment meeting at the end. The RRLWG has a rather lengthy waiting list of groups requesting the training sessions. Everyone wants to know the secrets that have made RRLWG so successful. As always Philipo says this was one of his most favorite days so far in Uganda as the group is simply inspiring. Check it out Boardwalk you were there in spirit:)

Philip and Dusman met with the engineer this morning at the site of St. Stephens Primary School in Kampala, Uganda. The school was built in 2007 by The Ssubi Foundation and is in need of some updating. Work has already started and will include new floors, solar power, paint and a little TLC for the school latrines.

Philip and Dusman met with the new school committee for St. Stephens Primary School in Kampala. The new school will be established in place of Lilly Kindergarten and Primary School after a few renovations by The Ssubi Foundation. Those of you that know Philip will not be surprised that an engineer has already visited the site and his crew arrives tomorrow. The school committee is busy hiring a new head teacher.

Kids up to their regular shenanigans on the playgrounds Ssubi installed in 2013! Thanks to The Mary A. Tidlund Charitable Foundation and the Emmanuel Foundation for making this happen, it continues to be a huge draw and helps support play to prepare children for their lessons and be able to learn in northern Uganda.

A special thanks to Village Honda who continually comes up with creative ways to support The Ssubi Foundation. They just raised $467 on ugly Christmas sweater day! You can see some of the beauties on the Village Honda facebook site
