As our school year here in the U.S. draws to a close, our Uganda students are just beginning their second school term in their school year that began in early February.  In Agwata, we are excited to see the progress being made with construction of additional classroom blocks made possible by donors who have invested in this project. This creates a chain reaction of positive benefits. It allows the Agwata community to attract and retain better qualified teachers which in turn helps our older P-7 students compete effectively as they  enter secondary or vocational school programs  next year.


I hope you enjoy this month's newsletter. As you enjoy your summer travels, please spread the word about Outreach Uganda, our beads and how others can help. A great way to share is by showing others our photos on Instagram so they can see the good work we do through the giving and help that you do.


Happy summer and thanks for all you do,

Celebrating Women
Agwata ladies participate in International Women's Day

In a community where over 60% of females responded that sometimes it is OK to be beaten by one's husband, celebrating womanhood is no small matter. Earlier this Spring, ladies from the Agwata village traveled to Palabek Gem to attend a festival marking International Women's Day. The UN-recognized holiday helps bring attention to the demand for women's rights and participation in political and economic life.

Building for the Future
Construction continues on Agwata school block
The classroom is comprised of bricks handmade by parents 

As the children of Agwata's Cubu Parent School begin their second term, construction continues on a third classroom block. This classroom plus a fourth block will house the four youngest classes (nursery through seocnd grade) which are currently found in a leaky mud and thatch structure. The Primary-3 class is currently held outside underneath a tree. Construction workers are anxious as they hustle to put the roof on now that the heaviest part of rainy season has begun.


As the rains pour down, where will the children go? Read more.  

Flip Flop Mission
Volunteer aims to collect flip flops for Ugandan students 


flip flops
With every trip Carol takes to Uganda each summer, along go an additional ten suitcases full of needed supplies for the communities we serve. Joanne, a long-time volunteer, has taken up the task of collecting children's flip flops.

Many children in rural parts of Uganda, especially those of nursery and primary school age, do not have any shoes to wear. Flip flops are affordable, lightweight, and effective in protecting their feet. Joanne is reaching out to people in her community to donate new and gently-used flip flops for children aged 4-12 years old. If you can assist this dedicated volunteer with her flip flop mission, please contact us right away!
