Day 1 part 2

Today we also pulled in to Siita Nest Mother's Love Home, which is home to 63 children and teens. This is the day I have been waiting for! The young people have all come from various backgrounds: some have lost both parents to AIDS, some fled the atrocities of war in the north after losing both parents, all have a painful past but have found joy here at SIITA. You can see it in their eyes.
Today I worked with the older teens on the jewelry project. It was a very fruitful time. We will have a training time again on Friday! they ooo'ed and aaah'ed over the samples Wendie created using the paper beads they made by hand.
James is a young man who grew up at Siita from the time he was 14 when his parents both died. He has just finished university with his degree in art design, and heads up the jewelry project at Siita. Stay tuned for more from Uganda!
