IRFF-Uganda Activity Report 2012



During his tour to the IRFF projects in Uganda the Director IRFF Dr Ashley Crosthwaite paid a visit to Destiny Junior School, warmly welcomed by the Head teacher Mrs. Jesca Kyaligamba, who showed him around the school. The bore hole is still under construction; although there had been hope to reach the water table at around 40-50ft the rock was actually hit covering the water table at 70ft. Nevertheless, despite setbacks it should be finished mid-July. Jesca thanked IRFF UK, especially the sponsors of the children and teachers for blessing the school. To date the school is receiving £300 per month. There is still a lot of work to be done to find further sponsorship. Our visitor thanked all the teachers and the director of IRFF-Uganda, Mr. Robert Mwogeza for continuing to help the helpless children. The delegation also spent time to check on the performance of pupils, and to listen to the children’s poems and songs as well as inspecting the classrooms and rest of the building.


Masaka is 125 kms, from Kampala; the IRFF/WAIT volunteers visited the home of two aged women, who are also Tadeo’s only remaining relative. On arrival they were welcomed by the community. The ladies live in a house that needs renovation,particularly a new roof,for which irff has already supplied the sheets, nailsetc. Because the water source is very far and there was no water at the house the team walked the 1km to collect water, and made a raised vegetable garden in the home of these old women. They also gave some drugs and food items. The women and community around thanked IRFF UK and all the WAIT volunteers for such a timely help offered to them, we now believe some one some really cares, they said. May God bless you.

While in Masaka the volunteers visited Butale Mixed Primary School where they carried out social responsibility in the school, which included removing jiggers from over 30 pupils and fumigated the classrooms. They were thanked by the head teacher Mr. Nsubuga Francis with chairman PTA. Besides that Ushs 240,000 was donated to improve on sanitation expenses by IRFF-UK.

IRFF would like to thank Nalubega Josephine the deputy head, Nassali Grace and Nakamoga Ruth for their kind help with the project. Thanks also to the former pupil Sylvia for joining the WAIT team.

On 1st and 2nd July the team attended Church service at Peace house, and held planning meetings, mainly making the programme for the visiting volunteers from STF {Europe}.

On the 2nd and 3rd July the team began working on the documentary film about Destiny School.

Wishing Dr. Ashley a good tour a round Africa on IRFF and WAIT projects, God bless you.
