    Coming from the heart

    Day 127

    The Tools To Create

    We’ve been spending the past week in Oruchinga. It’s a refugee settlement unlike any other –small and interspersed with national villages in Uganda, it’s been in existence for nearly six decades. “It’s a peaceful, quiet existence between refugees and nationals,” Jennifer, our Case Management Officer, tells us. Living side by side, refugees and nationals go to the same markets, grow food on neighboring plots and attend the same schools. Today, we are visiting one of these schools – Rwamurunga Community Secondary School.

    We had some art supplies that needed to be put to use and our team suggested taking a short walk across the road to Rwamurunga Secondary where we met the Head Teacher, James.

    “These were the very supplies we were going to purchase,” exclaimed James as we shared the art supplies with him. “Hands-on learning is really important. We have fine arts class and these supplies can even be used in geography. They will be used across many classes!”

    Though it was just a small supply of items, it made a big impression on James! “How can you say it is small? Everything that comes from the heart cannot be underrated!”
