Day 9: No trip in Africa is complete with the chaos of a land-border crossing, so off we trot. After breakfast in the jungle, we head towards East Africa’s gem,Rwanda. Expect lots of frantic bustling, some wild chickens, a strange queuing system, and lots of fun as we cross into Rwanda, then drive through the spectacular, winding roads from Kabale south.
DAY 11: As the rest of the GBGA crew say goodbye, we hope on a local bus to the Congolese border town of Gisenyi Lake Kivu. A boat cruise of Africa’s highest lake will reward you with captivating views of islands and far sights of the Nyiragongo volcano. Have lunch there and proceed to cross the border with Congo to the town of Goma which is the capital of the North Kivu province. Overnight in Goma.
Our partner community in NGO circulates around an orphanage about 2 hours from Kampala.
Many years ago profoundly touched by the plight of orphans and the growing number of street children, our partnerregistered Community Based Organization operating in Masaka district committed to a life long journey to transform and uplift destitute children in slums.
They soon expanded to running a children’s school WECO Junior school where children under their protection and care acquire free education and those in the surrounding communities access very cheap education. Since then, they have recruited professional powerless young mothers as teachers, caregivers and jobless youths to join our staff also supporting the local market when they buy their produce for our school meals. Currently their Junior school has enrolled 83 students in their junior school of only three rented temporary classrooms and a staff of 6 teachers.
With a growing need, and not enough space, the GBGA has pledged the funds, and labour to provide 3 new classrooms allowing more kids access to the amazing care and education these guys provide. Please come and help us.
