When we moved to the new home, the courtyard contained a dozen pieces of quality playground equipment. The landlady informed us that it had been left by a previous tenant, and she was planning to sell it to help with the debt left by the former tenant. The equipment is worth 16 million UGX. Our U.S. friend Marcia Brown was moved by the children’s delight in having access to a playground and expressed an interest in helping toward purchasing this equipment
The children have been so blessed to have an outlet for their energy. The landlady was asking 11 million UGX, but she came down to 6 million UGX (about $1600 USD—a fair price and less than half of the true value). So far, about 2 million UGX has been raised and paid to the landlady toward the purchase of the playground equipment. Because the landlady was so kind as to lower her price, we hope to pay her off as soon as possible. Please let me or Marcia Brown know if you would like to partner with her toward this project.
