    “Hi, Herman. Thank you for the kids rainbow sandals. They will be given out at the village of Mabaku Uganda grand opening of the school for primary and secondary students. These students will be the 1st in this village to attend a local school or school at all. This was the dream for the founder Charles of Pamoja safaris. He grew up in this village and did not have an education until he was 15. Much appreciated and they will be worn. I will send pictures of how Rainbow was part of this special celebration.” - Kim and Debbie (pictured)
