The guys showed up this morning to start replacing the floor in the library and what a horrible job. It was at least 30C today, a blistering sun and the poor guys had to use a pick axe to break up the old floor first then they hauled up bag after bag of sand and cement, up three flights of stairs yet when I showed up with a camera they were all smiles.
That is a Ugandan for you.
We had a meeting today and the family we are staying with (Mrs Kalule founded the school) have decided to offer young Ishmail and his mother a place to live here at the house so he can go to a local school and get away from that awful slum. His mother will have her own, large room for her family in behind the main house, with big windows and lots of sunlight. The family will also give her a job working on the farm (which feeds the kids at Cambridge school) and helping around the school, so she can take care of her children,
We will invite her to come see us next week. Fingers crossed she will accept.
Heading to Jinja in the morning, at the mouth of the Nile River (where I stayed in 2012) I can't wait to show the rest of the team that wonderful place
