Trustees visit in October 2018

‚Äč

On October 17th 2018, Clare and her sister Pippa,  travelled out to Uganda to visit friends in Kinkiizi Diocese- the students and staff at Nyakabungo Girls Secondary School, the teachers and children at Ruth Memorial Nursery School in Kihiihi, the Nyakatare Health Centre in Kanungu, and many others. 

The Mary Wood Trust has recently enabled the building of new male staff accommodation at NGSS, as well as renovating the old accommodation and upgrading the head teacher's house, updates of these projects can be found elsewhere on this website. This new building was commissioned during their visit.

A wonderful new Sewing Room has also been created, thanks to one of the trustees, Kath Smith, in the memory of her late husband Cliff. What a great addition to the school it is, encouraging vocational skills as well as academic achievement.

At long last the floor of the dining shelter is finished so that the girls can eat in dry conditions when it rains.

None of these things could have been achieved without your support. Thank you so much.

Hopefully there will be regular updates during their visit next month and If you would like to know more about supporting the work of the MWT then please do get in touch.

The first term at Nyakabungo Girls Secondary School is just beginning. Some of our older students have left and some new ones are arriving. Please pray for those who are leaving home for the first time and are nervous about the new situation they find themselves in.
