At Village of Hope, the Team was welcomed by the smiling faces of the Village of Occupants and members were so touched to see a big community of people (Children, Mothers and Staff) happily living together in harmony. Games and Sports were held(AFL trained), Story telling and Story Books read..Some children told members their stories before getting a chance to be in Village of Hope and these were so strong and strange to the Team guys BUT ,they also told the other side of the Story 'HOW? Their lives have Positively Changed after Joining Village of Hope and this was so encouraging. Still at the Village, the 3Team members are doing maintenance work on the Village's Main Shade and they are to stay until Friday 14 /2017.
The Team in slums of Masese: Their Hearts were so much hurt with the appalling situation people in slums live in, and they could not believe that people still remain welcoming and cooperative in the community.
Hope Community High School, it was a joyous moment for the Boys to meet fellow students, see newly rebuilt Dormitory after fire, as the Funds for its reconstruction were from the Boys themselves back in their School. Tom also held a Workshop with the High School's Students Leaders about Leadership and this was good.
Home of Hope, The Team was also joyously welcomed by the Children and the staff, and it was a very touching experience to see Children with multiple Disabilities happy..and Boys did not fear to interact with them freely. They also did the painting of the wall at Home of Hope with the Help of children from Hope community and and those of Home of Hope... it was one of Tom Percell's best Days in Uganda
