Sunny Days at the Gulu Orphan School

A few late March tid-bits from our favorite orphan school in Gulu.

I got the opportunity to pop in on some of our orphans who have graduated and are currently studying at one of the top Secondary School. All four of our star students are orphans or had been abandoned as children and overcame great difficulties and lack of education to get to where they are now. Ochen, Opoko, Bill and Ceasar are such earnest students, who always do their best to be at the top of their classes. It's wonderful to see them doing so great and makes me proud!

And We're Off With a Bang!

The new school year is off to a lively start. The kids are happy to be back from the holidays and are getting back into the swing of school life. The first of what we hope will be four children’s housing units are almost finished, with the cement curing and being finalized before the painting can begin. A second unit is also well on its way so everyone is looking forward to being able to decongest and move into new quarters soon.

Bricks, Tests and the Long Trek to Ik-land

The Family Care Uganda School has kicked off the New Year with a bang!.

January is dry season in this part of the world, so the FCU team and students are working hard to make the bricks they will need for the coming year. The kilns they built last year have been fired up and staff and students (during some of the breaks) are busy baking bricks around the clock. In the meantime new houses for the kids and several bathrooms are being built from bricks made last year.
