Uganda’s Got Talent.. and Grade 5 White Waters!
After an intense week at Auro school in Tororo district, Uganda, our team drove back to Kampala feeling very tired and drained.
There was a surprise on the way – white water rafting at Jinja! The source of the Nile and a Grade 5 whitewater, one of the wildest white water rafting experiences in the world!
Enough to wake anyone up eh?
Adrenalin restored, the team continued to Kampala. Part of their itinerary in Kampala over the next day included a visit to one of the most deprived areas in the capital where there was a project the team wanted to see, a small school.
As they drove into the area, the heavens opened. For those that have been to this part of Africa, when it rains, it pours – a tap in the sky with the power of the whitewater currents!
Houses were flooded, the team could see water gushing out of houses as they got to the school. But the locals took this in their stride – the kids continued to play football outside in the pouring rain – the ground was filled with thick mud and people carried on in their daily activities.
The team finally got to the school where the students were really excited to see them. The students had put together an amazing performance for the team that we’ve put up for you to see – it definitely brought a smile to our faces:-) Some very talented students!
