Paint, desks, feet and three new additions to the J10:10 House………

Busy, busy, busy………… I look forward to the school holidays here in Uganda. It is a very welcome break for our brilliant team, a substantially cheaper period for me as I’m not feeding 55 kids and 7 staff at the J10:10 House, and, supposedly, a…

Of painting, harvesting and posho…………..
