First day in Uganda

We got a precious few hours sleep and began our day with a great breakfast and Molly shared some thoughts with us from Romans 12. Then we loaded up on ROSA, the coaster bus, to experience Kampala in an up close and personal way. We visited the t4tAfrica offices to visit with Juliette, the manager of the MakaPads operation. She was an excellent communicator, explaining the challenges an under-resourced girl in Uganda faces once she hits puberty.

Showing us processed papyrus.

We all better understand why MakaPads make so much sense for girls with limited clean water, soap and transportation. Knickers for New Life is happy to use these at our partner schools. They are organic, biodegradable, locally produced creating jobs and sanitary.

Our team was completed with the arrival of Amelia from NYC who was rerouted and delayed. What a joy to welcome her! We hope to welcome her luggage tomorrow 🙏

Our evening was a celebration dinner with Edward and Christine Isingoma and some of their adult children. We ate A LOT of delicious Chinese food in a private room. This was definitely our swank night of the trip. Isingomas are the most gracious of hosts and are taking great care of us. We are all healthy…just tired.

Uganda is a fascinating, complex and challenging land. We’re all in.

Our team is complete!
Isingomas are beautiful family.
The future of Uganda.
