The politics in Europe are heating up, but we shouldn’t lose perspective – at least we still have a stable social security and somewhat sensible way of dealing with things. In Uganda, they had their General Election earlier this year – there were riots afterwards and hundreds of people died. It was only once the US sent their troop to the country that the situation calmed down. Business suffered, locals suffered, there was much unrest.
And this was because the same President took over power again and the election wasn’t deemed democratic. No matter what people in Europe are saying now, at least our voices are heard and taken seriously.
Now the situation in Uganda and in Kampala more specifically has calmed down. Our music school is offering lessons as normal on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays. The Mother Ann Nursery School takes place from Monday to Friday. In addition to this, the standard consultation services are running normally (teacher training, research, secretarial services, book services for schools and exam services for schools).
Thank you to everyone who has supported us during the past few turbulent months – and here is to continuing the great work!
