Uganda: Keeping focussed in Term 2.

The remote Makondo community has been busy with the coffee harvest these last few months, with any spare time spent picking coffee beans in the plantations.

Uganda: Utilising the holidays.

During the easter holidays, students created a rota for working at the St Denis computer business, so they could assist with serving customers, as well as registering for email accounts and brushing up on their typing skills.
