Board Members in Nakaseeta | 2019
Three of our board members recently returned from Uganda, and had an incredible time visiting Nakaseeta School, and spending time with their new friends and family. We spent a great deal of time building relationships, strategizing about the future of Hope Restored, and imagining the bright futures for all those in Nakaseeta.



Our 4th Annual Nakaseeta 5K Walk/Run Event is on the calendar! It will be held on Saturday, October 3, 2020 (PENDING Phase 4 implementation in Thurston County) with registration from 9 am to 9:45 am, and the whistle for the 5K blowing at 10 am sharp.  All proceeds will go toward the final phases of construction and furnishing the dormitory on Nakaseeta school grounds. The dormitory is needed for many reasons – some of the children at the school do not have families, and a dormitory allows them a place not only to sleep at night, but to be loved and cared for. There are also children that walk an hour and a half to school one-way on a daily basis. The dormitory would allow children that live a great distance away from the school to be able to sleep there during the school week. We’ll see you at the event!

The study of crops is an important part of their school lessons, and the children also have the benefit of eating delicious veggies that nourish their growing bodies from crops that are being grown on school grounds.

The dormitory is partially constructed and has been both a necessity and a dream for many years. The dormitory is needed for many reasons – some of the children at the school do not have families, and a dormitory allows them a place not only to sleep at night, but to be loved and cared for.

Something else that is very close to Christina’s heart is reducing the rate of malaria in Nakaseeta. In her Master’s of Public Health Program, she has been doing an extensive amount of research on Malaria. Malaria is a preventable disease, but it continues to take the lives of 400,000 people around the globe every year, with the bulk of those people being in Africa. Christina and John Joseph have been strategizing about ways a Medical Clinic could be built on school grounds, and ways they could partner with the medical community in Nakaseeta in order for children to be tested for malaria, and have access to the medications proven to cure this disease.
