It's hard to believe I've been back from Uganda for almost three weeks. I was privileged to go on a field trip to Murchison Falls National Park with twelve of our P-7 students from Agwata. I hope you'll read more about the impact of this trip in this month's newsletter.

Already we are planning for our next trip to Uganda in late January and February. If you would like to join us and visit your sponsored child and/or volunteer in some way, now is the time to let us know of your interest! We'd love to talk with you about how to make this happen.


If you know of any good places to sell beads at your work, church, neighborhood or family gathering, please let us know. It's what makes our women prosper.


In the meantime, have a happy fall!

God's peace,

Agwata Students Take Study Tour to Park
Leaders in the Making
P-7 class learning about hippos at the Nile delta area of Murchison Falls park.

In July, Carol Davis, OU President; David Ocitti, Project Coordinator; and three teachers traveled with twelve P-7 students from the Agwata school. The group went on a four-day study tour to Murchison Falls National Park. Two mornings were spent with an armed guide learning more about the park's animals, birds and habitats.

According to their teacher, Ocan Michael, the trip has given the students a tremendous learning boost in geography, science and Ugandan history in addition to inspiring them to learn more and go far with their education.  The entire school and community was excited to learn that one of these students achieved the highest marks in the parish (Division 1) on their recent mock exams. More...

David is Coming to Colorado!
Meet our Ugandan project coordinator 
David Ocitti, project coordinator, in Murchison Falls National Park, Uganda. He will be visiting the U.S. in September.

From mid to late September, David Ocitti, OU Project Coordinator and native Ugandan, will be visiting the Metro Denver area for the first time. We are encouraging our supporters in the area to take advantage of this opportunity to ask questions, learn more about Uganda and how our projects impact the communities we serve. 

Host David for a dinner in your home or take him out for a cultural event in the afternoon. All ages, especially children, could benefit from this learning experience! He is greatly looking forward to the chance to thank everyone who has been helping the women and children of Uganda. 

We will also be hosting an open house (tentatively scheduled for Sept. 24th) during his visit. From Colorado, David will move on to southern California to attend a workshop to learn techniques for cultivating a certain herb (a multipurpose tree) that will help generate additional income for northern Uganda farmers.
