On 08th October we delivered a donation of five desks to Kibiribiri Church of Uganda Primary School. The donation was passed on to KIRUCODO from Bluebonnet Hills Christian Church of Austin Texas through their leader Pastor Dr. Landon Shultz. In the photo slideshow below, you will find the current classroom sitting arrangement of the pupils where majority of them squeeze themselves on the benches and use their thighs as support of their books while writing. In some cases, they are so squeezed that even some use the backs of their friends to rest on their books while writing.

On the other hand, you will find the new desks we delivered and there is still a great need of school desks to serve rural schools such as this one. Just in case you can support our Rural Schools Desks Program please let us know and we shall provide you will all the details. We want to reach to as many rural schools as possible. Thank you Bluebonnet and everyone for your continued support to our community programs. God bless you
