Ik Students Visit Their Homes in the Mountains for the Holidays

We just returned from taking most of the Ik students who are attending the Family Care Uganda School--primary and secondary, home to the mountains for the term holidays. People were so happy to see how much they'd grown. After working so hard the last 2 terms and getting good grades in both elementary and secondary, it was fantastic for our Ik young people to be back up the mountains!

More Ik Students Arrive

Last year we brought 12 Ik students from remote mountain villages. The first round of students are doing very well, having adjusted beautifully and are very appreciative of the opportunity to gain an education.  In the past, Ik youth have tried studying in Karamoja, the surrounding area, however, they have to endure bullying and poor treatment by their aggresive neighbors. So getting to attend the Family Care Uganda School where they can learn and excel without hindrance is a real Godsend to these beautiful people.
