The Start of a New School Year

January is the start of a new year of school in Uganda with first term starting at the end of the month. There is always a huge need for uniforms, sweaters and shoes before classes begin. The schools insist on black shoes so we went shopping and bought over 100 pair of second hand shoes this week.

Now we need to find shoes that will fit all the children who need shoes.


It is a challangeing time of year for us. It is also heartbreaking as many kids come in  begging to be put on the program and have to be sent away.
