The most encouraging update is that all our staff members together with their families are all in good health and doing great. In addition to this, the food distribution exercise is progressing on well and some of our beneficiaries are regarding the support as a miracle from heaven.

At Fields of Dreams Uganda, we had a great start to 2020 with all the children that we serve at our partner schools happily returning back to school for first-term studies according to the Ugandan academic calendar.

It is with great pleasure that I step into my role as Board President for Fields of Dreams Uganda. It was only two and half years ago that I first went to Uganda, and I was completely unprepared for the way the nation and its people would take hold of my heart. Since that time, I’ve had the privilege of traveling to Uganda four times, with my fifth trip coming up next month and my sixth coming up this summer.
