Rain Coats and Books for Our Boarding Girls

By Carol Davis | President

I just returned from spending five weeks in Uganda, including three weeks at the northern Uganda school where we have 13 sixth grade girls boarding. Through your support, as well as help from other donors, we purchased rain coats for each of the girls plus English textbooks and math sets for the new library. The girls can study in the library outside of class time each day. So it is very helpful having the textbooks readily available.

Books are very rare in Uganda, even at schools. We're quite excited that the school library is complete, and stocked with an inventory of 1800 books of all types for students in kindergarten to 6th grade. One entire shelf contains pupils' textbooks which are concentrated initially on 5th and 6th grade. We hope to expand this further next year.

Thanks so much for helping make the girls' learning more productive as they continue to study for their very important year-end exams in November.
