In 2019, thanks to the generosity of several great donors, Tusonge celebrated the purchase of a new van that will:
Safely transport our children to and from school, and
Provide us with a new source of revenue.
Thanks to the business skills of one of our Ugandan directors, George, we were able to establish a unique relationship with his safari company. George takes tourists on safaris in the wilds of Uganda and to the headwaters of the Nile River. He suggested that, by purchasing a safari style van, we could use it for our purposes but when it’s not needed his company could lease the van for safaris.
An additional benefit of this project is that some of our children are expressing an interest in learning about the tourism business and auto mechanics; two fields that they can learn about as a result of this project. Who knows, Tusonge-hosted safaris might be a big new business someday.
