Vicky & Imi from St Philips spent two weeks at Victoria's school in Uganda. They took over children’s clothes, toys, toiletries, books and bubbles. They are planning to establish a Nursery routine and are setting up a sewing room to enable the older girls to learn  skills for the future.

AA Water project Czech Team 2013 crop (1)  

A Czech team led by Daniel Hejzlar  has just returned from Victoria's school in Uganda and have reported that they have installed solar panels to the new guest house generating 4.5 KW or enough to power an average house. They have fitted a solar powered pump to the well and the school now has flushing toilets and a shower for the first time. This is a focussed move towards sustainability for the school. Photo shows the Czech team with Ugandan friends rejoicing as the water reaches the school.

In 2010 Alan took a Czech team to Uganda to meet our partners there. It was the beginning of a fruitful partnership which now means Glenburnie Butega School now has many more supporters from the Czech Republic. The Czechs have now helped build the guest house, installed solar panels, built a new pumping system from the well and built showers and a flush toilet! See more here of the partnership and here for details of the first visit
