Kampala, (Uganda) -- International rural project

University women from Uganda and Spain joined forces in a work camp from July 4 to 24 in Kampala, organized by Teemba Study Centre, the Kyoga Foundation and Goimendi Student Residence in the University of Navarre.

Their principal activity was repairing the dormitory of Santa Maria Goretti high school and that of a school for orphans in Munyonyo, Gaba. They also built a chicken coop with the intention of teaching the small children how to raise and care for poultry, something that will be useful to them in the future and at the same time provide a supplement to their diet. When they finished building the coop they christened it Kikiriki 2004.

While the construction was underway, the girls received classes in English and mathematics, as well as some sessions of human formation.

The students also visited a center for the care of AIDS-patients in Banda, and spent a morning in Kivulu, a poor neighborhood of Makerere where the Club Medfriends, made up of medical students, provides a mobile clinic. The young volunteers gave the Club medicine and equipment as well as clothes, toys, and school material for the children and their families.
