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.
Philip just left for Uganda today to visit his family and help with the official hand over of the Lilly Primary School to St. Stephens Day Care and Primary School. You can learn more about what we are up to in 2015 by visit the looking ahead section of our website here.
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

In 2010 Sandi, a student at Lelo Obaro Primary School, watched The Ssubi Cup and decided one day he would play for his school in the event. Four years later he made the team!! You can see Sandi the year he set this goal during a solo performance at the 2:00 minute mark of this video:http://youtu.be/Yz0kP6oUVvs
