Aminah, the long-standing Headteacher of Luwero Community Secondary school has resigned her post so that she can spend more time with her two young sons.  She leaves with the good wishes of all at Luwero and she hopes that the Project continues to thrive.

The naming ceremony for Luwero Community Secondary School (formerly Luwero Brilliant High School) took place just before Christmas.  It was a joyous occasion and marks the start of a new chapter in the life of the school.  Below you will find some photographs taken on the day and video footage of the celebration dancing in the playground in front of the school.

Duncanrig Secondary School Visit

A group of 18 pupils and 4 members of staff arrived at the Project on 10th October for 2 weeks as part of the partnership between Duncanrig Secondary School, East Kilbride and Luwero Community Projects.  The party will be assisting in as many ways as they can and have plans to help in the schools, work on the farm and get involved in projects involving the local community.

A full report of their time at the Project will be published upon their return.  Please pray for them as they try to make the most positive contribution possible during their 2 weeks.
