Kindergarten Graduation in Kibaale

What a day for celebration!  On Thursday we held a graduation ceremony for our Kindergarten classes in Kibaale Community Nursery School.  It was part of the annual year end “Speech Day”.

This is the first year we held an actual graduation…with gowns, caps and certificates!  The parents and guardians were so proud of their little ones and there was a  wonderful spirit of celebration as teachers, students and parents danced together.

God has been good to Kibaale.  The piece of land where Kibaale Community Centre is located was a desecrated site where atrocities took place during the time of Idi Amin (president in the 1970s).  It was an army camp that was a curse to the community. Over the years God has redeemed this land, restored hope to the families who suffered so many losses to HIV/AIDS, and  made the centre a place of blessing.  To see these kindergarten children so happy and proud of their achievements was very encouraging.  They are the future of this community and will follow in the footsteps of many of the hundreds of children who have graduated from our secondary school and have gone on to university and other colleges.
