Nicky and Steve - great volunteering experience at La Bastilla

Hello there! We are Nicky and Steve and we are students from the USA who are volunteering with La Bastilla in Nicaragua for 4 weeks. We both study Computer Science at university and brought a donation of 7 laptops, in order to help the school here and also to teach the students some useful IT and Computer Science skills.  

Uganda Case Study: Ssebuguzi John Robert

Ssebuguzi John Robert has attended St Denis since S1, and was previously a day scholar walking an hour and a half from his village, Misenyi, to school every day. Now in S4, he began boarding at the start of the school year as he was missing evening study sessions. Robert is not sponsored, and if he can find the money he would like to go on to S5 at a school in Masaka.

Uganda: A New Business Manager

Term 2 began with the appointment of a new Deputy HM – an exciting development for the St Denis businesses as the role includes that of overall Business Manager. Entrepreneurship teacher, Ssemambo Henry, accepted the position and has proven eager to get involved in the businesses and develop them.

Kenya: Beauty Salon Crisis!

Mercifully, the Easter Break has finally ended which means there are now people at Ondati who I can talk to, rather than cows.

                                         

Rwanda: On a roll...

We are only half way into May and there is already a lot of news to report from Ahazaza. We started off the month with our second pop-up cinema screening which proved even more popular than the last, this time the Student Entrepreneurship Club were prepared and made some delicious popcorn to sell at the screening. After the first attempt which ended up slightly burnt we ended up with 10 full bags of popcorn to sell.

Uganda: New Recruits

My first few weeks at St. Denis have gone well and it is wonderful to see the posho mill up and running and thriving. Talented St Denis student Ndalike, in S4, was recruited to produce a sign for the business and it looks fantastic:

Nicaragua: April Buzz in La Bastilla

As usual La Bastilla has been buzzing with activity, literally and figuratively.  Among the high number and variety of insects, I’ve taken notice of the tremendous presence of cicadas that provide a constant soundtrack to our days here.  The students have also been buzzing about their first term exams and grades.  The results are in, and I’m proud to announce La Bastilla students scored an overall average of 88% after their first term.
