We have been excited to host our Head Teacher, Janepher Nansubuga Kintu, in Australia this month, thanks to the generosity of a very special donor. Janepher’s time has been spent attending fundraising meetings, the Black Tie Ball, visiting different schools including Gib Gate, Cherrybrook, ELC at Shore and Special Needs at Macquarie University. She has also managed to see some of Australia’s finest sights, including Taronga Zoo, Sydney Aquarium and Wildlife Park and taking a scenic trip in a 4 seater plane over Sydney, thanks to our supporter Joe Corrigan. We hope Janepher’s experiences here will be spread to the children and she has an opportunity to share her memories with all in Katuuso village! See more images here! Continue reading
