This is an area to describe the details of the event. Or you could have any information in here really, it just doesn't matter all that much. But the real test of an area like this is how much text it can actually hold. I mean, surely there must be limits. Right? Well if there are we sould probably display a Link Style.

Since 1994, St. David's has had a close relationship with the people of Uganda in Africa. Started through a Companion Diocese relationship, St. David's involvement over the years has increased exponentially and now we are the largest supporter of two schools in Uganda. There are several buildings, cows and children that bear the names of our church and our generous parishioners.

Project Ensonga
Keeping Girls in School No Matter the Time of the Month
Read the article below for Project Engonga founder, Leslie Roy's, experience with her kits in Uganda...
Imagine living in a community like Kampala, Uganda, dependent on help from others. The children living in the slums there are in dire need of money for a daily lunch, clean dormitories and modern classrooms. Funds are also needed for water tanks to collect rain water from the roofs or to drill a well to get water when the rain barrels run dry. The needs are daunting.
In 2012 and 2014, I visited Romans and Sarah Serunjogi, in Uganda, who are partners with St. David’s Episcopal Church and ECHOES Around the World. Thirty years ago, they started a school with six students in their home. Today this school, Trinity Children’s Centre, in the slums of Kampala, has grown to 1,300 students from pre-school to primary 7. They started Centenary High School in Masaka which now has 800 students. Later, they added the Double Cure Medical Centre in Mpigi which is run by their oldest daughter, Lydia, who is now a doctor.
With all that has been accomplished, they still lack funds. Twenty-five percent of the students cannot pay the meager $275.00 per year tuition. And because of Aids, many of the children are orphans. After my visits to Uganda I kept thinking about ways in which I could help.
One persistent and unacceptable issue affects only the female students.
Many girls miss up to five days of school each month because they have no feminine hygiene products. Most do not have the money to purchase disposable products and if they could afford them, there is no safe place to dispose of them. Bathroom facilities consist of shared outhouses with a hole in the ground for the toilet and no place for washing afterwards.
Girls will use old pieces of uniforms or other rags that are not properly cleaned. Or they may just sit in their rooms on a piece of cardboard.
After reading articles about this issue, which exists in all developing nations, I discovered Days for Girls International. The nonprofit’s founder, Celeste Mergans, saw this need in 2008 and engineered a sewn, reusable feminine hygiene kit. This solution was perfect! The kits require sewing (which I love) – a skill that can be taught to the women and girls at Trinity Children’s Centre (which has a classroom of sewing machines).
The statistics show that after kit distribution in other Ugandan schools, the absence rate dropped from 25% to 3%.
In November 2015 I quickly made several Days for Girls kits, and when Sarah and Romans came to visit the United States that month, I showed Sarah the kits and explained how they were used. She was excited! When she returned to Uganda the tailors who work at Trinity began to make the kits, but they did not have the money for the required materials.
In December 2015, I launched Project Ensonga. Ensonga is the Ugandan word for issue, which is how they may refer to their menstrual cycles. My goal was to make 500 reusable feminine hygiene kits to take to Uganda the next fall. I wanted to be sure every female student at Trinity Children’s Centre and Centenary High School would receive a kit if they had begun to have their period. This project would require raising money to buy supplies such as fabric and thread, recruiting people to help make the kits, and setting up collections for the remaining items in the kit including underwear and wash cloths. Each Days for Girls kit will last three years and contains two shields made with a waterproof piece of fabric and snap onto the underwear, eight liners which are the absorbent pads, two pair of underwear, one washcloth, one small bar of soap, two plastic Ziploc bags to store the dirty liners, a visual instruction card, and a drawstring bag to carry everything.




April 2012 Ugandan Partners visit St. David's

It was an amazing month for Outreach as we continued to grow our relationship with our partners in Uganda.  Sometimes growth is hardly discernible, little increments over time but April wasn’t like that; it was a big jump when Romans Serunjogi and his wife Sarah along with Patrick Wakkonyi and his wife Sarah (yes, two Sarahs) visited us. Since many at St David’s have touched Uganda at some time over our 30-year relationship, Romans and his wife Sarah were known and loved so there was definitely a sense of renewal with their visit.  Our engagement in St. Peter’s is newer so this time proved the perfect opportunity to grow our faith together as we cared, shared and learned.  And of course had much fun with both families.

It takes a village to raise a child is an African Proverb and it truly felt like a village supporting their visit to the US.  There is much to be organized in terms of volunteers and logistics: host families; airport runs, pick up and drop offs, site seeing activities, bible studies to attend, in the case of Romans, an operation to be had, trips to our local outreach and a fun celebration party.  But central to it all is relationship; we can certainly have an impact deploying our resources but underlying all our international outreach is our relationship with each other and with Jesus.

Uganda Trip June/July 2009

In the summer of 2009 eight people traveled to Uganda to work in the schools and the Double Cure Medical Clinic. The group was hosted by St. David's liaison in Uganda, Cynthia Anderson. They took with them donated soccer equipment for the children in Uganda.

St. David's and Uganda, 2008-2010

2008 brought a very exciting development in St. David's Uganda Mission, when parishioner Cynthia Anderson answered a call to become St. David's first in-country outreach liaison. In late February, Cynthia moved to Uganda for a period of two years to live among the people St. David's has come to love through this outreach mission. Living at Namirembe Guest House (an Anglican-based hostel in Kampala) and teaching English to students at Trinity Children's Centre, Cynthia has been our eyes and ears, and has hosted several visitors from the US who have traveled to give of their time, talent and treasure to St. David's Uganda Mission.

St. David's and Uganda, 2004-2007

In March 2007, seven people traveled to Uganda from St. David's. On this trip, more parishioners were introduced to the mission, and they also painted and helped as needed at the newly-opened Double Cure Medical Centre. The group also visited the schools that St. David's supports, and observed continued progress in both the physical plant and in the welfare of the children.

In October 2005, another group from St. David's traveled to Uganda for the purpose of introducing additional parishioners to this mission and to check on progress of current projects. Among the many changes and growth that were celebrated were: continued improvements in the health of the children at both schools, many building improvements accomplished or in progress according to previous goals, and new machines at the Maize Mill. The group assessed future needs, including building interest in the Uganda Outreach at St. David's, serving the ongoing needs of the children, and continuing to make improvements to the Maize Mill.

In August 2004 and March 2005, fifteen parishioners traveled to Uganda. Their focus was providing medical care and supplies, and establishing a feeding program for students at the schools. Additionally, our Ugandan team helped with the start of a knitting ministry, which grew out of St. David's Plentiful Sowers group. This knitting ministry has evolved into a small business for the Ugandan women who learned to knit during this trip.

This programming year was a record year for donations to both Guatemala and Uganda. Almost 100 parishioners donated money to World Gifts while The Gift Shop enabled St. David’s to give over $10, 000 to Guatemala and Uganda.
