We’re thrilled to have several educators participating in the June 2020 Uganda Trip.  Three of the teachers currently teach in Chicago at St. Andrew School and Thornton High School – Annie McGuire, Emily Matus and Marie Wojdelski. And, one of our participants is a retired teacher, Bill Carroll.

During our visit, the teachers will have an opportunity to experience a variety of schools, where our scholarship recipients attend, interact with Ugandan faculty and even teach in some classrooms.  Equally important, the firsthand learning these teachers experience will be shared with students and classes once they return to Chicago. Plans to enrich curriculums and connect classrooms from Chicago to Uganda will create lasting impact.

Two of our teachers, Annie and Emily, have established a GoFundMe page to help with their expenses and any money raised beyond the needed funds will be donated to our Hand Up Scholarship Fund.
