Franklin Teachers, Students Head to Uganda

"Five teachers from Franklin Middle School left for Uganda on Thursday as part of a 15-day educational journey funded through a $25,000 grant from Lilly Endowment," reports The Indianapolis Star.

"While in Uganda, the teachers will tour the capital of Kampala, work at a Habitat for Humanity project, teach at a primary school, help at a clinic for HIV patients, take a three-day safari and travel to the source of the Nile River."

Franklin College students left for Uganda yesterday (17 January) on a trip arranged by Ambassadors for Children to study global poverty while participating in hands-on volunteer work in different areas of the country. They return 29 January.
