Sending off the biking team
Excitement is in the air as KCA hosts two Canadians and one American with the goal of riding bikes all over Uganda. They will cover 2000 km or 1250 miles to raise funds and awareness with Get-Schooled for the children of Kassanda Children’s Aid! In total they raised enough for this year 54 kids, 14 in secondary school, 39 in primary section and 1 in vocational institute. Before leaving we visited the nearby schools to see the some of the children at the primary schools called Walton, William Mukasa, Lwakisa, Ssempera Memorial and lastly Pride Secondary School.
The official riding started on 06/06/2019, Joshua, the American could spend only two weeks and then had to go back. Stacy who came to celebrate her 50th birthday with the Get-schooled children and John her husband are from Canada. They will finish their tour on July 22 but before they board back on the 23rd we hope to have a farewell party with our visitors, caretakers, and the Get-schooled Children. We are planning to have different guests from the District Headquarters of Kassanda, Stake Holders and Partners.
The building of the children's home has been slow because we have collected only $400 out of the $15000 needed. We managed to put some materials to start with 7000 bricks, 4 trips of hard core stones and two concrete stones. We are still believing that we can build this house together with your support so children can be helped.
Kassanda Children’s Aid with the help Mrs Patricia Woosley also built another house on the Stephen Baker Land which was given to one vulnerable lady who had four kids as their sleeping conditions were in very poor conditions. We appreciate all of our donors and volunteers who help us, here we say WEBALE NYO, which means thank you so much!
