In summer 2014 Jamie Clarke (a neighbour of the trustees Tom and Lydia) took a break from his university studies and chose to visit Uganda. As well as volunteering with another organisation Jamie visited Sr Theresa at the Good Shepherd Special School and spent some time with the children. “I am very thankful to BAO for putting me in touch with Sr Theresa and the children at The Good Shepherd School. The children are incredible and I think about them every day. It was good to see first hand how the money being raised by BAO helps these children – it really does make a huge difference. I cannot wait to go back!”

Should you have family or friends who would like to visit Uganda, please do contact us and we can provide you with some contacts and travel advice.

What Next?

In 2016, we are hoping to build accommodation for a group of orphans in Western Uganda. These orphans currently live in very small, cramped and uncomfortable housing. In partnership with HUGS we plan to build a new living quarter for these children which will vastly improve their quality of life.

We also hope to set-up further school partnerships with North West Schools. Our aim is to ultimately have the 7 Good Shepherd School Classes linked and supported by 7 schools in the UK.

Please contact us should your school be interested in this scheme.
