On Friday Simon (right on the picture) graduated as a Social Worker. We are very proud that he made it! Simon is working for many years in Amecet, he started as our driver, going with us to the villages and helping us. Then he did, together with his wife Josephine, in 2003 a Discipleship Training School in our mission organisation YWAM. And since that time he is co-leader in Amecet. He was always working in Amecet as a social worker, but now he also got the theory of a social worker, together with his social practical skills! It is quite a step to go back to school and even more so, when you have a family and a full-time job. The institute where he did his study was in Soroti and it was only 1 to 2 days a week. But it is a big accomplishment! We are also grateful for the financial support for this course of The Dutch organisation, The Figurant, we know that Amecet will gain with the knowledge from this course.
On the picture is one other staff member of Amecet, Emmanuel. he did the same course and came in Amecet for his fieldwork, he is still working with us and we also congratulate Emmanuel with this big achievement! The graduation was in Kampala and as you can see on the picture, it was a very formal and official celebration.
