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.
The Ssubi Foundation would like to thank Tanya Eklund for her continued support. Tanya has been a long time friend to the Foundation and has played an active role in our success.

Last week she joined Winnie in Kampala at secondary school. We are very proud of Beatrice and appreciate her hard work and effort.
