December has been a fantastic show of love from all of our incredible supporters. You continue to amaze us with your generosity!
We ended the term on Friday 8th of December with our Christmas party filled with lots of music,
dancing, games and special snacks.
Just before the term ended, you incredible people helped us raise enough money to purchase a chicken and a new set of bed sheets for each of our families. We ended the party giving out our chickens, while the bed sheets will be purchased and given out at the beginning of the new term in the new year. Our families are so grateful for each and every one of you and are overwhelmed by everything you do for us!
Not only did you help us purchase the chickens and the bedsheets but you also helped us to buy a huge range of new gifts and toys for our school! Everything that was listed on our Amazon Wishlist was purchased and is currently being packed and is almost ready to be delivered to Uganda! Obwaagazi Academy now has lots of amazing new toys to share with our students thanks to your love, kindness and support!
We had only one arts and crafts session this month and we had a Christmas session making hand and feet reindeer. We all had to draw around our hands and feet and colour in our reindeers ready to glue together and complete our reindeers!
We also want to say a massive thank you to Richard Piper and his niece Amy who have done some incredible fundraising for us over Christmas. Amy and her partner spent a whole day in a double jumper to cook dinner and a couple of days ago Richard drank a glass of wine in a freezing cold river in the UK! It’s amazing to have such wonderful support!
January will welcome the return of our founders Kristina and Moses and we are so excited to have them back! We want to thank everyone who has helped make their journey special with lots of unforgettable memories!
We hope you all had a very special Christmas and a very Happy New Year!!
