KCC Daycare

We have recently started a Daycare for our staff in Kibaale. There are up to 30 kids coming throughout the day!! 

The younger kids that are there all day are already learning to sit in a circle for meals, songs and stories. The older kids come after lunch and seem to provide extra entertainment for the babies!!

We have been blessed with several donations already; clothes, blankets, toys and books, which was a big help to us as we were setting up. As we get into routine we've realized there a few other items that could really help out through the day, such as bumbo seats, bouncy chairs and a play mat. 

If you have a donation for our daycare you can drop it off at the PAOS office at Pacific Academy School.

Thank You!!!

Talent Show

In August our social committee put on another successful all staff event, a talent show. There was athletics, dancing, modeling, laughing, yes laughing, and eating!!!!

White Ants

White ants live underground in Uganda and come out after it rains. Even after a very light rain like we had on this evening in July. A few of the kids on the property ran into our yard to sit down and have a delicious snack! YUM!?

Cassy, who was on last year's PA Outreach Team, had the opportunity to volunteer in Kibaale for a couple weeks in July. She was a great sport and tried one of the ants herself!

Avin, who lives with her family in Kibaale, is not too sure about this!

New Water Well

We just installed a new well on our farm. The timing couldn't have been better as the rainy season has still not started in Kibaale!! This well is on the other end of our property, near staff housing. 

What a blessing it has been to our staff to have a clean water source nearby. It also benefits our farm and our neighboring community.
