As part of our history class the 9th grade worked with connect to learn to help send a girl to the Kisyoro school in Ruhiira Uganda. We did this by having two bake sales and by screening the film Girl Rising. I baked for the bake sale, and I attended the screening. At the screening I was surprised to find that there was still so much gender related oppression and that a basic education could really help. I think that it is great that Friends as a community is taking a stand and helping send girls in Uganda to school. There is no good reason that girls and boys in all nations should not have the same educational opportunities as we do at Friends.
