Scholar Meeting and Ndali Dinner, Sat June 28

The group spent Saturday morning and afternoon meeting and interacting with some 55 of the 68 Kasiisi scholarship recipients. Scholar ages range from first year secondary school to second year college. Excellent food. Several speeches.

Rich and Maggie's scholarship student Kiiza Rogers.

Anita and Dave's student Namara Godwin.

Our student Kukunda Martha, #1 currently at Nyakasura Secondary School outside Fort Portal.

Scholar Happy Sauda, who made a very gracious speech at the Friday June 27 Muchwa ceremony.

Saturday evening we all went to Ndali Lodge for dinner with an eclectic group including the chairman of the Leakey Foundation and his family, plus Richard and Elizabeth Wrangham, and also researchers and staff from the Field Station. This is an exceptionally beautiful spot. On one side of the lodge, just a few feet away there’s a 300-foot sheer drop to the Rukwanzi crater lake below, and on the other side there are panoramic views of the Ruwenzori Mountains (when they emerge on rare occasions from the mist and clouds, that is!).
