Making Friends!

When our Trustee Gill visited Uganda this spring her bags were packed not only with donations and equipment, but also with letters. Pupils at Newnham Junior School in London had written over 100 letters to the children in Uganda! The letters were given to pupils at Murushasha Community, Ruhija Orphans & Needy, Nyakeina Parent's and Rushaga Community Schools. And the pupils responded .... Gill arrived back in UK with over 100 letters written back to the Newnham pupils.

As the pictures show - the letters were of great interest to the Ugandan students - it really encourages them to know that there are children elsewhere in the world thinking about them.  And we know it will be exciting for the Newnham pupils to get replies all the way from Uganda!
