Uphill Teacher Benon's New Home

Benon-and-Family.jpg

Uphill teacher Benon joined the school at the beginning of the 2017 academic year and teaches in the primary 4 and 5 classes. Director Elius tells us that he is very hard working and is an asset to the school. Life is often very hard in rural Uganda and even those with qualfications can struggle to keep a roof over their family's heads. We received a request this month for a one month's salary advance for Benon so that he could afford to buy this little house to provide a secure home for his wife and 5 children (4 of whom attend Uphill Junior School). We were happy to be able to do this and Elius sent us these photographs along with Benon's grateful thanks. As ever, a little goes a very long way in rural communities like Iruhuura...
