The Padre Pio Capuchin Franciscan Monastery, Kabulamuliro

The Padre Pio Capuchin Franciscan Monastery, Kabulamuliro, located between Entebbe and Uganda's capitol, Kampala, is both spiritual and community center for the neighboring and surrounding Kampala area.  A thriving assembly of friars, volunteers, parishoners, and visitors, there is always activity on the grounds, in the offices, and in the sanctuaries.  It is from here that Father Godwin Ogam, Provincial Superior, has selected the students we are supporting.  Future plans include the creation of a board of trustees to oversee operations in Uganda.  As "Let's Send These Kids to School" develops we plan to impliment a more formal application and screening process for our students.
