New Rock Foundation Evening

Friends from Ross and Bishop's School in Hereford visited Kampala last August to help with the construction of the New Rock Foundation School. On Saturday, 19th November, people from Ross enjoyed a range of African style foods (including chappattis and ground nut sauce) at the Ryfield Centre, followed by a powerpoint presentation of both the work completed on the school and the 'tourist' bit of the group's visit.

Visitors from Uganda attended the evening also, sharing information about work they are involved with - prostitutes in Kampala and children of the itinerant fishing communities on the Ssese Islands in Lake Victoria.

In the informal atmosphere people were free to ask questions and other members of the visiting party, who were able to pass on their experiences as first time visitors to Africa.

Sue Gasston, party member told Wyenot News, 'We will continue to raise money to finish building the school - to put another storey on the new block. This is our project for 2006. We are also looking to replacing all the very rough wood tables and benches with new desk/bench sets, which cost about 30 for 3 pupils. We are also proposing to take another party to Uganda in 2007.'

If you are interested in helping in any way, Sue Gasston would be pleased to hear from you on 01989 564251.

Pictured below on Saturday, 19th November at the Ryfield Centre evening are John, Sue and Jo Gasston, Janet and Richard Beacon.
