HBI Schoolies Revolution Team 4 in Uganda!!

At noon , Team 4 (Schoolies) landed at Entebbe Air port in Uganda. All are well and pretty much excited to reach at Village of Hope to be part of Hope Builders.
They boarded the Bus to Jinja .....which Johann called a short journey may be because he is used to it, but to our first time Visitors it was a bit long.
We finally made it to Suubi House by six o'clock ,loaded off the laggage and no one could sleep well  before going to the Village though it it was getting dark in a few minutes.
Today morning at 9am, the Team arrived at the Village to start on House 12 ,started with fetching bricks, laying the first layer from the slab helped by the African Hope Builders. This happened in half day since in the evening they are going to run about Jinja town to get to know it more..
Team 4 has designed a number of programs to run in the 2 or more weeks in Uganda, visiting the community schools, Home of Hope ,Luke's project (Youth Support Uganda) ,the Kikaramoja slums, the females' prison and on top of that Building House 12.
Lets all believe God for the Team's Health and safety while it helps Break the Cycle of Poverty in Uganda.....Goooooo Schoolies go...

2 Brand New Families in the Village of Hope

Yesterday was a day some children and thier Guardians will never for get. We went to the slums and picked those Children who went through after collaborating with the Local Council officers to fulfill legal issues....They are now at the Village as i post this, these are to occupy Houses 9,10 under the care of New mothers (Mama Monica, and Mama Petwa).
The children are so happy to be in the Village, met other friends, comfortably living ..although some feared to sleep on a bed with a mattress and a mosquito net.
They are happy on swings, round games ,football and all other sorts of games. Let us all Welcome the New Families to the Village.............'All this is done to help Break the Cycle of Poverty.
See it in Pictures below..
