Songs for Lunches Concert

Many thanks to the organizers and performers of ‘Songs for Lunches’. The concert was a huge success with very talented and entertaining musicians. The girls were excited to receive a phone call from Br John Kennedy, thanking them for their generosity.
Inverness County Cares would like to express our gratitude to these young ladies. Thank you for thinking of the needs of the children of St Charles Lwanga School. Your contribution will make a huge difference in the lives of these students. We are pleased and proud to have such thoughtful and globally aware young people in our community.

School Update By Br John Kennedy.


The president of Nuestra Escuela, Mr. Justo Mendez, came to the school with a blast. He was highly welcomed by the students who were prepared to present songs, poems and kinds of entertainment.

Mr. Justo giving every child a greeting and a lovely smile of love.

The students spent time with him as they talked together, they got to share even some words  in Spanish and he got to get some Swahili words. Valuing the time spent on one on one with them, Mr. Justo, came to the school everyday for a week talking to groups of five to ten at most. He got to visit various places in the country too with  Bro. Kennedy Oronjo who represented the school well.  

Mr. Justo was later joined by his wife, who hugged every kid and spread laughter and joy to them. They came with food and drinks and hosted a mini party as they bid the students farewell. There was music and dancing and everyone was all smiles.

The roofing of the classroom commences

The classroom building that has taken long to be roofed as a result of lack of funds finally started off. So many well wishers sent funds for its completion and finally some light at the end of the tunnel is seen at last. The progress is steady and the students could likely start using this classroom soon.

The students have been taught a lot by their teachers and now is the time to assess their performance in school. Teachers have toiled to make sure that they are given the best of the best, now they are to see how effective they were. Examinations started off and all the students are seen busy revising, consulting and discussing around the school compound.

A foundation by the name Loreal, came by the school and gave career talk to the students and also involved students in activities like tree planting and painting of the classroom walls which made them feel useful. They then gave presents to the school like lotions and shower gels as the foundation is sponsored by Nice &Lovely.

MCDF, we had fun!! 
We thank you for every support you have given to our school and we look forward to what is in our future.

Yours Faithfully

Bro. John Kennedy O
