It was a very happy and busy weekend here in Uganda! Visitation Day took place at two of the schools where LITA contributors are supporting 8 senior school students in boarding!
We traveled to the students over both days, shared a SKYPE call with a special donor in Canada and 4 of the students, gave/received lots of hugs, did some problem solving, encouraging, listening, and brought replenishment of items to last till end of term 1 such as clothes washing and bathing soap, tea, sugar, some treats like cookies, pens, books, etc!
AND… whooot whooot!! we set up the first 5 work stations of 25 planned, in a NEW computer room at one of the schools! With 5 donated PC’s from Canada that I brought over last trip, each capable of supporting 5 work stations, we added locally purchased monitors, keyboards, mouses/mice?!, all the cables required, and paid for the support of the tech to set it all up for around $1000!
Head Teacher, Sr Clare, is so grateful and our students are so excited! Thanks so much to contributors who have made this amazing empowerment possible! We can use a hand to add the remaining 20 stations.. would you like to help? $1000 will add another 5 work stations! Please visit here! Thanks so much <3
