News from the Lakeshore – Feb 2016

One hundred children returned for the beginning of term following their 2 month break and the first task everyone agreed on was cleaning up the community! The children and their teachers spend the entire morning clearing the local area, collecting over 200 plastic bottles. There is no waste disposal in Nabugabo so all rubbish must be collected and burnt. Well worth having a read of the newsletter just to see the photos of this mammoth task!

School Minibus

The Nabugabo Community Learning Centre is approximately 25kms from the nearest town, Masaka, and can only be reached by dirt road. As well as trading and craftsman, Masaka has the closest hospital to the school and more often than we would like, children have to be rushed to the town. There are very few vehicles in the village, let alone a minibus, which can make this trip even more problematic. One of the HUGE Partnerships goals for 2015 was to purchase a vehicle that could be used by both the school and community to reach town and thanks to your kind donations

HUGE visit, Easter 2015

The HUGE team of 11 enthusiastic and willing volunteers (and 700kg of donations) headed out to Nabugabo over Easter. We spent six days volunteering at the school and in the community. The last time I visited was two years ago; 30 children were enrolled in the school and the resources available were limited…the difference now was unbelievable. Improvements in infrastructure, equipment and resources were noticeable, but the biggest change was the children; 99 kids, all in uniform, receiving 2 meals a day, progressing in their lessons and making friends outside of them. When the children first joined NCLC, they had

But there are many remarkable Ugandans who quietly, invisibly, do inspirational work despite often living under most extreme conditions – remarkable people who refuse to ´give in’ and offer selfless service, despite formidable obstacles. People who consistently put others before themselves – they are not simply ´community members; they are educators – powerful visionaries who ‘Make a Difference’. They are people, mostly women, who look way, way beyond ´now-now´ (today) who strive for self-determination and a preferred future, not only locally, but globally for future generations and
