Schoolies Revolution 2016 at Village of Hope

Hello to you all!!, and thanks to God for the Schoolies Team which arrived safely in Uganda on Monday 21.
The Team is on well,  and all planned activities in High Gear...Building of House 14 is now at window level, and Guys are seriously getting dirty as they help in Breaking the Cycle of Poverty.
Home of Hope has been visited and team was overwhelmed by amazing work being  done out there.It has also visited Welcome Home in Jinja Town , this is a babies Home and this was done on Saturday and after, it was leisure at the source of the Nile and Dinner in town after a hard week's work....

It's so far going on well with the Team and everyone at Village of Hope, yesterday on Sunday, our weekend was spent in a cultural interaction style where Children taught Schoolies cultural dances like Kigisu Dance(Kadodi) from Eastern Uganda, Kiganda Dance from Central Kisoga Dance from East. The day was so exciting to the Team and the Children, with the different " bone breaking dancing strokes" at least from one of the Team Members..The dances came to pick when our own Uncle Johann got a waist tie to try out the Kisoga Dance which he indeed tried!!!

Our Sunday and the week was ended by the Team Helping Mothers in the African Kitchens with cooking of Dinner....Schoolies had Hard time with the Smoky choking stoves of our kitchens, pounding of our matooke,cutting onions and chopping of firewood. This was so amazing for the Team members and all activities in preparation of meals truly different from what they knew..
