 The Charlene’s Project Team 2014

The Charlene’s Project team has been working in both Hidden Treasure and Kahara Primary Schools, with the Acholi Quarter Beads Project and in Primary School Sports Camps at Lugogo.

We were also glad to visit and support both Destiny Christian High School and Jesus Cares Project and leave supplies at both.

We have met some wonderful people and everyone has enjoyed their interactions with the children and teachers. We are grateful to all our Ugandan partners who make such productive work possible.
