Another "break" day. So today we went to town to buy undies, socks, and singlets for our boys (by this stage they were understandably feeling a little left out, and fortunately one of our lovely sponsors ok'd her donated money to be used on these awesome young men!) These items are uniform requirements for school.
We also got to meet with a lawyer who is helping us register as an NGO in Uganda, and catch up with our good friend Andrew (of Art and Heart Africa!).
This also gives me another opportunity to show you guys some other random Uganda pics. Yes there is a lot of heartbreak and poverty here, but it is also a vibrant country with a love of people and life, and we would love you to see this side of Uganda too.
Streetlights is a campaign aimed at improving the lives of street children in Uganda through art. Having a chance to express themselves, kids can learn to manage difficulty with creativity and rise above their situation.
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!
