April 2010 ~ UPbeat from ChildrenUPAmbrose

Ambrose Okot sent ChildrenUP an annual timetable schedule of student and mentoring activities for a year. This will enable us to do necessary planning and budgeting. We thank Ambrose Okot for his attention to detail in this and all of his communiqu├ęs.

Mark June 26 on your calendars! ChildrenUP is in the process of organizing its first wine and cheese tasting Fundraising activity. Please see our home page for details.

On April 20 and 21st, Charlie presented programs on Uganda to Churchville Middle School in Elmhurst, IL. The students were incredibly enthusiastic and asked some wonderful questions. Churchville is supporting Okello Francis as he enters high school in Gulu, Uganda.



Another presentation was made to the 6th grade at Jackson Middle School in Villa Park, IL. Again, the children were quite responsive to seeing how children live in Africa.

The Elmhurst Lutheran Evangelical Church Youth Group asked for a presentation on the challenges of growing up in Uganda. Yet another group of enthusiastic young people! We thank Pastor Denny Beach for having scheduled the meeting.
