School supplies for St. Bahkita

Paula Vicenzi provided this wonderful update on our sister school in St. Bahkita, Uganda (please see previous posts on May 28th, '12, November 13th, '12, April 13th, '13, May 15th, '13, and November 9th, '13  to learn about the history of our relationship with St. Bahkita).

HMS students participated in a LifeTouch school fundraiser last last spring. Lifetouch donated $2.00  to HMS for every student who had their picture taken, regardless of whether the pictures were purchased. As a result of this effort, we donated $772.00 to the St. Bahkita School to be used for school supplies.

Charlie Roscoe, founder of Schools for Refugees (, sent the pictures below showing the teachers and students with their new school supplies. We'll keep you updated on news from St. Bahkita throughout the year.
