More and More School Children Have Less of a “LONG WALK TO WATER”

Updated: Sep 27, 2021




(2017) A new Kitchen building and cooking stove, and three water tanks have been the result of $4,800 dollars in donated funds by the: Our Lady of Black Rock, East Aurora Middle, West Seneca EAST, and Cleveland Hill Middle schools.


These were proceeds from student fundraising in response to their reading “Long Walk to Water” by Linda Sue Park. This outreach is forever changing the quality of life of many school students across southern Uganda. Another $3,500 will be forwarded this fall to continue the primary school outreach.


When Fr. Emmanuel Katabaazi, from Masaka Diocese visted Buffalo he brought letters of appreciation from the students to the students of the various schools that contributed to their assistance. New to outreach, we welcome students from Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Harris Hill. Fidele Dhan, Fr. Ron and Ms. Joan Ersing had the opportunity to give a presentation and welcome them on board our student to student, school to school initiative Reaching Out 2 Africa…………..
