In late September, Our Chair of the Board of Directors, Ramona Walker, and I, went to Uganda. We saw big changes that we would like to share with you. We visited seven schools that have received boreholes and teaching tools from Quench and Connect. We attended several dedications of new boreholes and saw science labs and computer facilities that have been set up with funds from our donors. (See the pictures). Perhaps most importantly, we saw clear evidence of development in the country. For example, roads are being constructed throughout the country, even in remote areas. Electrical poles are being installed at some of the rural schools. And it seems the quality of life for Ugandans is improving. In remote rural areas, where we used to see people walking along the roadside, now some of them are riding bicycles. In the bigger towns, more and more boda-bodas (small motorcycles) are on the roads. In one southern part of the country, we saw cultivated farms with rows of pineapples growing on the hillsides. (They recently learned that the soil in this region is perfect for growing pineapples!) All of this progress makes it even more urgent that we continue to provide clean water and educational tools to high school students, who represent the new generation that will guide Uganda through its next phase of development. Will you help more students thrive and learn by sending us a donation?
