Blessings of Joy and the Mweruka Village Primary School. The most need of all our visits. Stan and Barb had visited only briefly after meeting a Ugandan at their church in Tulsa who was involved with the school. Little did they know how much these children need until their first visit.
This was our greeting at the school. 300 cheering, smiling children, mostly in their school uniforms.
The easiest way to tell the girls is by their skirts. All women wear skirts in Uganda. Most schools have uniforms, which are the only clothing they have. Saturday is wash day, so the clothing is washed once a week. Water is carried in yellow containers, sometimes for miles, to their homes for cooking and cleaning.
Know any other Rotary Groups who might like to partner up to a great cause?
I hope this recording of the children works!
Every day was grueling, but such a pleasure!
