|E Howard and E Grundy (just came from Nevada and they are|
here in Uganda for their 3rd time!!) R Is about to blow out all
his candles. His wishes will come true. Not bad for 69!!!!
|This is the Bugembe Health Center IV for maternity. We have had|
a VIP Latrine built for this center. (vented improved pit latrine)
It has been built behind the center,
|The nice, newly built latrine, with a roof catchment so the mothers|
can wash up.
|One of the stalls. no toilet just the hole in the ground. This is the VIP|
latrine. The pit can be drained when it is full, unlike regular latrines.
|Left to right: Mathias (contractor) E Howard, Abubaker, Stk Pres|
Mbiro with the Mayor. The mayor has just told us "no handover"
He wants different paint.
|President Chatfield, S Chatfield, S Howard, E Howard & Mathias.|
We decide to take a pic anyhow because Chatfields won't be able
to come back. And then we go on to Lake View School.
|The kids are all excited as we pull up. Maybe just to get out of|
class for awhile.
|It is hard to tell girls from boys because they all have to shave|
their heads. Boys have on shorts and girls are skirts or jumpers.
|As we waited to get started a little boy (?) walked past us all and|
went and made himself comfortable on Pres Chatfield's lap. We
all had to smile and Pres Chatfield was quite pleased!!
|I noticed an older woman sitting on the front row, in her Sunday best.|
She must be someones grandmother.
|The school kids are singing us a welcome song. Mathias is talking|
to the Assistant Head Teacher. We had a prayer, national anthem,
and the pledge. All before we each talked.
|Chatfields with new friend, who eventually leaned back and went|
to sleep. He was very comfortable.
|More singing and even some riddles.|
|Pres Mbiro introduce us to this member who is inactive. He is a|
member of the school board. I hope he will be at church this week.
|This is the nicely tiled girls washroom.|
|The appreciation plaque.|
|S Chatfield & friends.|
|As we entered the school, I could not help but notice how dark|
the room is. But then I noticed the 1 light bulb hanging from
the ceiling. As we have visited schools, I always notice how
dark they seem, but can tell the kids don't even notice or mind.
|The ribbon cutting ceremony with Mayor and Pres Mbiro with |
the Head Mistress Teacher. Richard Okello is taking the pic.
|I think these girls will be the first to use new latrine!|
