We need to interrupt our stories from our trip to Uganda with the sad news that the Director of Bunga Hill Primary (where many of our kids attend school) has passed away. We met Harriet over 4 years ago when we first formally partnered with Bunga Hill to provide education for our kids. Harriet was instrumental in helping Kids First provide a quality education for disadvantaged children at a reduced cost. She understood the vision we had, and realised the importance a school plays in a child's future, over just running a business.
We were fortunate to meet Harriet again on our recent trip to Uganda. She told us she was battling cervical cancer, and had been to Nairobi for treatment. Although she had lost a lot of weight, she was as bright and enthusiastic as always.
We are so grateful for her support and partnership, and we send our love, thoughts, and prayers to her family at this time. RIP.
Here at Kids First we all have something to say, so this blog will be updated by members of our team as our work progresses to keep all of you in the loop!
