Kibooba Progress
In early January 4 Oneworld provided aid for the Kibooba Primary School to fence the school grounds. Kibooba Primary School Director, Joel Ibanda worked tirelessly to install the fence. Now that the fence is in place the school 
is close to being up to code. The government inspector required the fence for security and an upgrade to the pit latrines in order for school to remain open. 4 Oneworld recently sent funds for the pit latrines and the plan is to 
have them completed by the first week of February.


Seeking Volunteers
4 Oneworld Board Member, Shannon McMorrow was recently nominated as the 4 Oneworld Education Committee Chairperson. The committee includes 4 Oneworld Secretary, Liz Semaan and Treasurer, Niki Millard. The goal of the committee is to raise awareness among Southwest Michigan students about the challenges young people face in the developing world and what 4 Oneworld is doing to make a difference. 
4 Oneworld is seeking volunteers for spring of 2010 to help with the education committee. If you’re interested in learning more contact shannon@4oneworld.org.

4 Oneworld in Uganda

4 Oneworld Executive Director, Tara McKinney, will be spending February and March in Uganda. Her time will be divided between the community and Kibooba and the St. Kizito Secondary School in Kampala. The goal of the visit is to research income generating projects to help sustain the Kibooba Primary School teachers’ salaries. 
The citizens of Kibooba will be providing a variety of ideas for projects. With the help of 4 Oneworld, they will  consult professionals and research options to decide on the best course of action. 
In mid-March she will be joined by a team of 4 Oneworld volunteers who will be sharing their gifts and time with the students of Kibooba Primary School and the St. Kizito Secondary School.
