On Thursday, 18th July 2013, a capacity-building event took place at the Potentiam Youth Development Centre in Bukasa, Muyenga. Augustine Bazirake, “Living with HIV Country Champion” of Standard Chartered Bank Uganda, together with Surea Njuki, the Youth Centre Manager, held an information session about HIV/AIDS. The workshop was very interactive with a lot of involvement by the participants. Besides youth centre staff and students, a large number of community members from Bukasa perish attended the event, as well as the Fontes football team and the Fontes cultural troupe. Everybody had a lot of fun and learned some new things about HIV and AIDS.
On Wednesday, 17th July, the new team equipment has been handed over to the Fontes football team. It was an exciting evening for the players, as they received a complete set of new match uniforms as well as the desperately needed first aid kit. The team and the coach are very thankful for the generous donations made by the Fontes supporters back in Switzerland, especially JÃ¼rg and Jean-Pierre Pletscher for the uniforms as well as the unihockey club Red Taurus Wislikofen for the lion share of the first aid box, and send them their warmest regards. After the handover, the team already inaugurated the new uniforms during a friendly match with their friends from Namuwongo area, and the first aid box has already been of good use as well.
