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.

The family of Charles, one of our beneficiaries at Makerere Secondary School, had spent a couple of days without having a single meal in the home. By the time, we reached out to this family with 15 kilograms of maize flour, 6 kilograms of beans, 5 kilograms of rice, 2 bar...

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.

In late February we received the first team of volunteers from the US, which was followed by another amazing team at the start of March. Both teams graced the commissioning of two changing rooms at our partner schools, distributed more than 1,500 hygiene kits to girls at our partner schools, and held two soccer championships. All of these...

What a day! Over a thousand students attend Bungatira Primary School in Gulu, Uganda, a school with 1098 students and 19 teachers. Nineteen teachers for 1098 students! Math is not my strong suit but it's obvious that student: teacher ratio is CRAZY high. Fields of Dreams Uganda has provided the school with a social worker one day per week. FoDU’s social workers move between schools each day (5 schools each week) and service over 1000 students per school. I'm a school counselor and all of these numbers blow me away. My case load per week is l...

This trip marks my return to Uganda with Fields of Dreams Uganda. Yesterday we made the journey from Kampala to Gulu. Two years ago it was a long bumpy drive that lasted about eight hours. This year newly paved roads all the way to Gulu, instead of just part way, made the countryside even more beautiful on the only six hour journey.
