Mutuuma Primary School
I have a soft spot for Mutuuma Primary School, the elementary school I attended many years ago as well as a school that both of my parents taught at and became principals. Since 1999 I have tried as much as possible and with the help of friends and family to give back to that school. Here I want to share some images of the slow but steady growth of the school's infrastructure over the years.
Here on the left is a view of how the school was prior to 1999. When we were in school it was not as good as this because we had mud walls in many of the classrooms. Here below is a shot of one of the trips I
made with friends from Augustana College who supported the renovations of these and other classrooms. Some of the classrooms did not have windows (okay they had wire meshes) or doors. Here below you can see a shot of the school after we had completed major renovations to it. My thanks go to all my good friends across continents and family who have supported this endeavor. It means a lot to me and I want to continue supporting the school in whatever ways I can.
