28/06/16 we inaugurated the playground that has been under construction for a period of time. It was a very beautiful and fulfilling day to both us as staff at Kids of Uganda and the entire group of people that participated in the process of ensuring that the playground is completed. It is very heart-warming to be a part of a winning Project.
This day was a joyful day whereby we recognized the children in the region and properly highlighted their right to play!
Because this inauguration day was very important to us, we decided to celebrate it together with every member of the Bubulo community including the children, parents and the community leaders of Manafwa district like the Residents’ District Commissioner, who was our guest of honour; the Inspector of schools, the district Physical Planner who helped in the allocation of the land on which the play ground was allocated, the police in charge of children’s affairs to mention but a few.
The day was full of poems, songs, performances and sketches. All these activities were high lighting the theme that was “right to play”.
We also had to listen to speeches from different guests and it was amazingly colourful and very beautiful. The community has an added site for the affairs of children and we are honoured and privileged to be a part of the team that is working together with the community leaders to make livelihood for children in Bubulo better and worth living through play!
Major thanks and gratitude to the play without borders organisation for providing the plan that we used to construct the playground. I also thank both my work mates, Astrid and Louise who started to put the puzzle together in collaboration with Daniel, Amie and others!
Last but least, I thank my Ugandan team: Kangala James, Kakai Krystyn and Samuel Sendagire for helping finish up the work. It was because of the great teamwork that we successfully brought this great project to completion.
The people of Bubulo send their greetings and gratitude to the fundraisers in Sweden and the whole Kids of Uganda community for giving such a wonderful gift to the children of Bubulo in particular, Manafwa as a whole and Uganda in general.
