There are no photos of our first staff meeting at RUHU. It was just Sonja, Patrick, William and I at a Japanese restaurant in Kampala, up on Nakasero Hill.
Throughout the Pandemic, school was a big focus for us at Beautiful Response, as it was all over the world. The interruption of in-person class came near the end of 2020 Term 1, leaving students with two terms to complete.
Sonja and I welcomed a baby boy into the world Monday evening. Birth puts everything into perspective, doesn't it?

Next week Tuesday (12/1) is a day dedicated to giving, a day to celebrate generosity. People around the globe are inspired by the power that their generosity has in making a positive change in the lives of others. On Giving Tuesday you can make the choice to show your generosity to a non-profit that you believe makes a difference. Beautiful Response is fortunate to be partners with two such organizations.
