Ugandaid 2023 - A message from Miss Allcock
I am now back from my incredible trip to Uganda. I have been truly touched by the experience and have made memories that I will never forget. The money we raised as a school was taken over and 100% of it has been spent on projects; e.g. renovating the medical centre, supporting street kids and helping the local hospice. I am so looking forward to sharing my experience with the children at BCS.
Whilst I was there, I had the privilege of picking two new students for the school to sponsor. I chose one boy and one girl.
This young man is named Difasi. He has just started a welding and metal fabrication course. Both of his parents are peasants. Difasi reared goats for the neighbours to earn a bit of money to pay for fees.
This young lady is called Syndrella. She is studying plumbing. Sadly, her father died of Covid 19, which meant she had to drop out of school.
It was a privilege to meet both of the students. They are ambitious and eager to learn. They were both very grateful for our support and look forward to the opportunities that their studies will bring
