When we walked into the Agaba Center yesterday, a group of young ladies from some fancy #Kabale school laughed & said “Yamawe mureebe abanyakyaro!” Loosely translated: “look at these villagers”. My blood boiled & my heart sank. Ready to attack them, i looked at my girls faces but they just kept on walking with their heads held high & were soon chattering & excitedly giggling away. I let it go. When I asked how they felt, they reminded me of their pasts. Some were homeless. “And look at us now!” they said. I was proud of them. A part of my heart still remained angrily sank though, on their behalf
I wonder what went through the same awful girls minds when they gradually realized that we were there under special invitation, the sole performers for His Royal Highness Omukama King Oyo Kabamba Iguru Rukidi V1 of Tooro Kingdom! And for the #PrimeMinister of Uganda Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda, the #Governor of Bank of Uganda Prof Mutebile, @unaidsglobal Country Director Dr Karusa Kiragu & other distinguished guests! The girls danced & sang with all their might & joy. It was beautiful. And the king & all the dignitaries loved them so much, that today happened! Omukama King Oyo decided to came to our home!!! 🤭😄💃🏽🙏🏾👑 .
My goodness. He actually walked in through our gate & spent a good part of the morning getting to know about our home, @grace.villa.kabale ☺️. This has to be the most fantastic, historical moment for our home to date. A friend heard about the visit & called a few minutes ago. He said “The girls are princesses now, dining with kings!”. I almost cried ☺️👑 Got to give a special shoutout to our Ambassador @brenda.kiconco - & to our beautiful, amazing, gifted & confident Grace Villa children. And most of all: God
