Uganda – day 5


The days have been so busy but generally full of awesomeness.

This morning we visited six different individuals who are part of VSLA groups and who have been saving and some of them have also taken out loans.

It is pretty hard to explain how significant the VSLA group is to their lives. With the money they save and borrow they are able to improve their lives significantly.

The First Lady we visited today has managed to save and.l borrow enough money to have 12 pigs which she is rearong for market. She is also growing vegetables in her garden.

The other people we had seen had bought a a solar panel and one was paying the school fees.


This afternoon we visited a second school and took them a Solar panel which was fitted whilst we were there. Suddenly they had lights in then classrooms which amazing. They gave us such a spectacular welcome with dancing and singing. The school was started with 50 pupils in 2013 and now has 248.

I can’t believe we only have one day left of trip. It has been amazing in every way.
