In honor of Buyamba's founder, Late Pastor Bethuel Dongo, God Cares Schools in Uganda held their second annual Dongo Run. Participation was open to students, staff and the community and close to 1,000 people showed up at God Cares high school to run the race! This 7K run took place days before the anniversary of our founders passing, two years ago. The day was full of fun as there were prizes, food, and games for all and people gave testimonies of how Pastor Dongo and the Buyamba Ministry has impacted their lives.
This is an amazing event and we're grateful for the leadership in Uganda who grants this experience to all of our students.
