Project Workers settle into their schools in Mbarara

After a busy training week in Mbarara (read what our Project Workers thought here and here), last weekend the PWs were finally ready to spread their wings and fly the nest. They’ve now spent a full week living and working in their schools, and for me and my fellow coordinator Anna, the week was spent visiting them in their schools to see how they’re settling in.


Me and Anna, on our way to visit the PWs in their schools.

It was great to see the PWs settling in well, making friends, and getting stuck into work in their schools. It looks like it’ll be a fun and successful summer for all of them here in Mbarara!
