We are delighted our stall raised £84. It was beautifully sunny all day, so unsurprisingly we are now sold out of our broad-brimmed papyrus and bark cloth hats!

June 2012 - Elmgreen Primary School
Two of our trustees, Joanna and Mark, recently visited our partner school in the UK. They started with a stall at the school during their lunch hour "market place" selling some of our craft work. They then attended the regular Wednesday afternoon "charity choice" session. They gave a presentation on Jinja DEAF illustrated by slides and a short video to a group of children, including hearing-impaired children, and some teachers. After they left the "charity choice" session, the children discussed amongst themselves ways in which to fundraise for JD. The day was a great success and it's always a pleasure to visit the school!

It has been an opportunity for Jinja DEAF to publicise its work and to make useful contacts in the deaf community and in the world of deaf education.
