The start of a new and exciting community service project at ISU
Last Saturday morning 21 April ISU welcomed about 30 local students coming from the 'Foodstep' NGO based in Entebbe. Foodstep is a non-profit organsation that provides a home for abandoned or street kids who previously had ended up in the notorious Kampiringisa detention centre for 'juvenile delinquents'.
The idea behind this new project is that ISU students would like to share our privileged campus facilities with the disadvantaged children sheltered in the Foodstep home. About 25 ISU Senior School students have volunteered to organize and coordinate and exchange fun and educational activities together with the Foodstep kids such as a variety of sports, IT skills, swimming, art, dance, music etc.
Last Saturday was the first session of this exchange activity. We started with a number of fun icebreakers to get to know each other and finished off with a sports session, including improving basketball skills and soccer. The ISU students also provided snacks and drinks in between the different activities.
This was a great start to a new Community Service project, which will continue to run on a weekly basis. Lots of smiley faces all over!
