Today (Monday) Christine, Geoff and Sue were tasked with finding and interviewing some 2nd and 3rd year UgandAid sponsored students. The first part of this proved much more difficult than the second. Various students were despatched around the campus to locate and bring back the students we wanted to speak to. It must be said this was done with various degrees of success.
Eventually all were found and the interviews held.
The really heartening news is the high regard in which UgandAid is held. While being very happy with their experience of NVI, all were full of praise for the opportunities which our sponsorship will bring.
One of the students interviewed was Betty. She was a past MVA student (this means she received sponsorship through school while being brought up in Masese). It was thrilling to hear that she had progressed to NVI and receiving sponsorship for her course there. She said she has fond memories of Paula who is heavily committed to MVA. Betty is now in the one of the tribal dance/choir groups made up of Luo people from northern Uganda. We saw her energetic and joyful performance in the service on Sunday.
