What a week! Our friends at Collins Interiors traveled to the south of Uganda to volunteer and help make a difference in a local school. They quickly realized that the children would be making a big impact on their lives.
An amazing client of Collins Interiors started the KamuKama Foundation. The goal of the foundation is to grow and improve the Victory School in Bwindi. This school provides education for the most needy and vulnerable kids in that area. Without this school, these children would not have a foundation for a different life. The Collins Interiors ladies went to be with the students, help them write letters back to their USA sponsors and encourage the teachers.
The Collins Interiors gang mentioned that the children in Bwindi have close to nothing but are extremely happy. They help each other and are so patient with one another. They love each other well. Their music and sounds were so beautiful, and their precious voices made them cry.
Our friends even had the opportunity to join the families at church, and the congregation without fail put something in the Sunday offering – even when they had so little to give. They said it was a beautiful thing to see them place their coins in the offering basket. One person didn't have anything to bring except a watermelon from her garden.
Once the nursery students graduate, they hope to move onto being sponsored at a secondary school (middle school). The mission of the KamuKama Foundation is to continue their education beyond just the Victory School. If you would like to help and donate to the children of Bwindi, you can visit the KamuKama Foundation website at www.victoryschooluganda.org.
We are excited about the growth of the KamuKama Foundation and are looking forward to seeing where it will take the children of Bwindi!
