Equipped with our brushes, rollers, overalls and paint, we set off at about two in the afternoon. It had rained heavily that morning and the question that was lingering in the minds of the crew was “Who goes to Bwaise on a rainy day?” Notwithstanding that fact, we set off. We were going to paint a classroom at St James Church of Uganda Primary School that the headmaster gave us to use for our weekend programmes. He couldn’t wait to have us in his school.
With our gear, we were able to turn what at first look like a vain attempt, to a beautiful decorated classroom. Thanks to the “head prefect” of the day Roland Tibirusya who by the way is the young achievers award winner 2010 (Art and Design), gave us directions on how to go about the painting. He would have never done this alone but with the help of other young professionals that were enjoying every bit of the painting session. The touch of the roller was exquisite made the work easier and enjoyable.
And who says you need a lot of money to make a difference in your community. This classroom that we were painting will be used for our activities in skills training.
And as usual it was an opportunity for every one that was present to serve and to reach out to the community.
The day ended with a prayer and a vote of thanks from the headmaster who was visibly grateful for the work that we had done.
