Newsletter

Dear friends,

We are very happy that we can send you another update from Foodstep Uganda.

Our Home has had a serious make-over and it shows! All buildings have received a new coat of bright and sparkling orange paint. Our new kitchen smells of big pans full of rice and beans. The large shed has been restored to its original horizontal position, we have a new water tank and we are currently renovating the girls’ toilets. Everything looks mighty smart again!

The construction of our hotel and catering school is progressing really well, too. By now, all supports have been fixed and the general bricklaying has started. We are very much looking forward to being able to start our new vocational training school. All the other branches are doing very well, too! We are still growing crops, our glass cutters are busy with new orders and the tailors are producing new uniforms for our security officers. Also, our medical pedicure and hairdressing department have branched out: as from now, you can also book a wonderful and relaxing facial massage!

Our children have started their last term at school for this year. In December and January, they will have their holidays. Fortunately, we have volunteers to help us.
And how the children have grown! My little girls have suddenly turned into beautiful young women. As for the little guys… all at once, their voices are breaking. Even our youngest, Mozes Mogli, is already able to sit up!

We also had another visit from Grandpa and Grandma. They brought a fun group of friends with them and it was great to have them all with us, we had such a lovely time. The children also enjoy these visits a great deal. We played games, had an activity & sports’ day, we visited Kampiringisa…

And then there were the many visitors, from all over the world. It is always wonderful to get confirmed that we are doing the right thing here at Foodstep and that ALL our children are doing so well and are happy.

Warm wishes for all of you,
Nathalie

Saint Nicolas

This year we would love to buy new mattresses for the children in the rehabilitation center. At least 100 pieces at €20 per mattress (transport included).
Also our 10th edition of the Saint Nicolas action is ready to start. €1 for 1 pencil, 1 orange and 1 small package of biscuits. Thanks in advance, Nathalie and all of our Foodstep Uganda kids.

Vélo Afrique

Today we've finished a whole week with Vélo Afrique. Taking care of their catering. Cooking on charcoal stoves, fetching water out of the Nile. Sleeping on mats, driving for hours with a truck, washing clothes by hand …. But what an amazing experience!
I was there with the kids of Foodstep and some of my staff. They were top! Thank you Vélo Afrique for supporting Foodstep Uganda. X Nathalie
