Lusagala Bosco is the director of Great Valley Orphanage/ School in Kampala, Uganda. Great Valley is located in one of the largest slums in Kampala, and currently has over 300 children from kindergarten to grade 8. Bosco has participated in Brush Out Poverty for two years…and will be visiting our schools in Pembina Trails in May, 2010.
Brush out Poverty (BOP) is a Pembina Trails initiated art / social justice project. The aim of BOP is to raise awareness between students in our school division and children orphaned due to AIDS in Africa. To date, 27 schools in Pembina Trails School Division have taken part in this art exchange. This video chronicles some of the many children in Uganda who have created paintings for our students here in Winnipeg.
