Friends of Goboti
..........The kids are very excited about the footballs and prospect of being coached by Gordon. I've attached a photo of the latest new classroom at upper Enduku Primary school which is, in fact two classrooms and is the final one to complete the school there. They hope to have the walls and roof at least finished by the time we go and then it will be officially opened while we are there. The whole village is very much looking forward to their visitors. There will be a lot of celebration I think.

This week, the Ulster Teachers' Union have been holding their conference at the Slieve Donard Hotel in Newcastle, Co. Down. Northern Ireland. Overlooking Newcastle are the Mourne Mountains made famous by Percy French's song, "Where the Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea." The photographs also show Karen and Annette receiving a batik presented by Metta Centre, Nepal in thanks for the Union's support. Thanks also are extended to Creation Nepal for its continual help and assistance

I’m distributing the boards to one after another school (one each for the first time). I’ve told the respective teachers that I will contact them again when the next boards are ready. The picture attached is the teacher Mr. Gyalsang Lama of Indrodaya Primary School.
Have good day!

I hope you are all great. Uganda is great too. This is to
acknowledge receipt of the trophies sent to NPI. I wish to that all
for the efforts done to get these trophies to us in Uganda. We would
however wish to use these to promote sports for youth programme.
Personally, I was of a view, the big trophy could be used for
different peace matches and could be rotational. We are yet to sit and
decide on the logistics involved to run such a programme. Such could
be began towards one big event like the International peace day where
the different schools could compete for the trophy. I will be
discussing with the Ministry of Social Development to see how they can
promote this activity. Once again, thank you for all you are doing.
The youth projects we started in Hoima (goat rearing) and Kitgum (pig
rearing) districts are growing in the right direction. We hope these
will serve to make the youth more involved in their affairs.
Once again, thank you.
Trophies and medals supplied with the generous assistance of the Ulster Teachers' Union and CP Trophies and Engraving.

Thanks to the generosity of Heatons Ireland and Ulster Teachers' Union - Carol was able to distribute some new clothes to a very deserving community. These men are from southern India and with their wives and children lost everything in the recent civil unrest. Their houses were burnt down with all of their possessions and they were forced to flee into the forests and mountains. Some of their families and friends were unfortunately murdered. Carol.

My visit to Tanzania proved an inspiration, this was a follow on from my last trip in 2008 a lot had happened then as they say a vision in progress. They were able to feed and give English medium pre school teaching to 130 little children in their village programme. Along with this they had built a kitchen, Bio-Gas Unit put in a foot pump, as well as a cottage for volunteers. They had begun the building of a Nutrition/early learning house for the little children. It was a privilege to help the children and friends of Tanzania with the care of the children and the progress of their project. more and album
