Our gardens are doing very well. We are yet to receive our first harvest, and are anticipating some great savings in food expenditures from growing our own produce. More on that hopefully by the end of January.

All the orphans and vulnerable children we have on the list are returning to school. We will share some new photos and info of new children coming to Bwindi in January. New children equal new sponsorship opportunities. Contact us if you are interested in becoming a sponsor.
The seven girls are doing fine. Two of them will be graduating from primary school this year and will be joining secondary school. The other five will still be in primary and their fees do not change. For the two joining secondary school, they will require $900 each for the 2021 school year.
We encourage all sponsors to send their support for fees in early January at the latest, to enable us plan effectively for next year. The next school year begins January 11, 2021.
The staff, the school nurse, the farm manager and the entire school community are all doing well. All of us love you so much. With your valued assistance we look forward to having a colorful Christmas party! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
