Advancement of Education

The friendship link has built new classrooms and teachers’ houses in Uyogo village and in two other villages in Uyogo Ward, called Kasela and Igembensabo.

We built nurses’ houses for the original mother and child clinic, dedicated to the late Eric Deal, a founder member of the group. We also sponsored village nurse Joyce Ongati enabling her to complete a doctor’s course in Dar es Salaam.

Joyce successfully graduated after 5 years’ study of in 2017.  She is now working in the main District Hospital in Urambo, near Uyogo, but would like to return and run Uyogo’s medical facilities.
