Our Summer in Kibaale

We've loved spending this summer in Uganda, especially hosting families in Kibaale! Since June there has been 50 visitors here, 21 of those were kids, which has been a lot of fun.

Since the Kibaale Community Centre has 4 schools with over 1,000 students on campus, a busy medical clinic, and many community programs there is an area for everyone to help out. We are so thankful for the generosity of our visitors; choosing to spend their time here, teaching in many different areas, and also giving gifts to their sponsor children and the community.  

Home visits are always a favourite part of coming to Kibaale! It definitely changes the experience of sponsorship when you get to meet the student you sponsor and get to know them and their family. 

The best sports days include a dance party. 

The water station was another favourite on this very hot day! 

The kids worked really well together planning and organizing this event for the Nursery students. 

Mud hut! We are so thankful for the fundraising efforts so that one of our students could get a much needed new home this summer! 

Avin spent last summer in Arizona with her friend Sophia, it was great having her and the entire Currie family on our side this summer! 

They apparently feel very strongly about this statement. 

This is moments before a mud fight! 

Nurses in training. 

Sweet little babies. 

Every week our nursing staff go into a different village nearby to provide immunizations, weight checks and deworming pills to that community. 

We are very thankful that 2 of the families planned and brought over all of the Christmas crafts that our students will make for their sponsors. It's a lot of work so we have to start in the summer, but having all these extra hands here made it go a lot smoother this year! 

Tea time! 

Sunset views! 

That's a lot of kids!
