Next to the huge 20 anniversary event and the presentation of the poster proclaiming Busoga – Queensbury as partners. Plus we were able to participate in the graduation ceremony.
“After a trip to the Source of the Nile, where Ghandi’s ashes were spread and the ancient Egyptians believed all life flowed, we tooled around Jinja and held graduation ceremonies at our schools. I also spent quality time with our “son,” David Mugimba. We leave Uganda for home at 2:45 a.m. Until July!!!!”
Our peerless Outreach Team strike again! “Giving back” takes on a whole new twist when you’re talking ice cream sundaes. Just ‘cause you’re homeless doesn’t mean you don’t have a sweet tooth. Our friends from Schuylerville provided this super treat. It was another great night with these guys who saw to the ice cream and acknowledged the humanity of us all. Seriously, do ice cream sundaes ever get old??!! The team sends out big thanks to the Schuylerville ice cream guys for stopping by Code Blue. The team loves having them there and the guests love new faces.
Candice Farrell is part of the team who traveled from the States to Uganda for the opening of our Koi Koi University Teachers School. She brings us pictures and comments:
“My first day in Africa led me to these beautiful children. I’m so humbled and blessed to have the chance to meet them. Their potential is tremendous. They just need to continue to have the opportunity. Donations are what make it possible.” https://www.thegivingcircle.org
Our second day of Koi Koi U 2019 teachers conference was amazing. The seed is planted. We’ve tossed the first stone into the water and the ripples have started. Opportunity and success will spread from this point.
