With immense excitement and anticipation, PaCT eagerly awaits the arrival of our cherished friends from the United Kingdom in February 2024. Among the group of 14 visitors will be some of our child sponsors, friends, and three esteemed members from the UK committee, including the founder of the Mityana Charity, Jean Ajin.

Their 10-day itinerary is rich with exciting engagements ranging from visiting the homes of sponsored children and engaging in domestic work with them, to visiting ongoing WASH projects in rural communities. A poignant moment of the visit will their presence at the commissioning of the Kabule maternity ward, marking the sixth health facility constructed by PaCT and a significant milestone in our mission.

Immersing themselves in the cultural fabric of Mityana, our visitors will also participate in a special culture night, where the town elders will narrate the history of Uganda’s tribes and uncover the rich local heritage. The cultural experience will then continue to Ttanda pits, offering insights into local traditions and Ugandan folklore.

They will then journey to Nabukenya Primary School, one of PaCT’s key partner schools which was built with the support of our lovely team in the UK. Visiting the nearby coffee farm will also allow our friends to witness the intricate process of coffee cultivation – a cornerstone of the region’s economy.

The visit will then expand beyond the confines of Mityana, taking them to the enchanting Rushanga in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest for an unforgettable Gorilla trekking experience. Culminating in the vibrant city of Kampala, our visitors will have the privilege of experiencing the Ndere Cultural Centre for a night of celebrating Ugandan performing arts that promises to be a feast for the senses.

This February promises to be a time of friendship, cultural exchange, and collaborative efforts that transcend borders, leaving a lasting impact on the hearts and minds of all involved. We eagerly look forward to reuniting with familiar faces, as well as warmly welcoming new ones.
