Checking in with Teddie Primary

May 25th, 2014

Evelyn and John (Engineer) recently visited Teddie Primary School to check on the structures we built last summer. There are a few cracks to repair as the building has now settled and the new classrooms need a coat of paint. The hardest part was getting there:)

RRLWG helping other women’s groups

March 1st, 2014


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.
