Michael and Godfrey


Members of the UK Uganda Network extend a very warm welcome to Esegu Michael and Ssebuuma Godfrey Jackson who arrived from Uganda on Tuesday 3 September 2002. Michael and Godfrey are members of the Uganda Scouts Association and are here for the very first time in the UK at the invitation of Marion and Brian Stagg (Michael) and Marie and Eric Goulding (Godfrey).

Eric and Marie met Godfrey in 1995 when they visited Uganda for the first time. Eric led a contingent to Kampala where the project was to work with the Uganda Scouts Association to renovate Baden Powell House. Marion met Michael in 1997 when she was on her second visit to Uganda with the 'Books for All' project in Iganga, this contingent also led by Eric. The relationships have grown over the years, through correspondence and meeting the young men on all other subsequent visits to their country.

During their two-month stay, Michael and Godfrey will attend several National Events including the Gilwell Reunion where they will be found in the Commonwealth Marquee promoting the UK Uganda Network's
forthcoming projects in Uganda. The Ugandan Scouts will also assist at local Farnham Scout Group meetings as well as taking time off to for sightseeing around the UK. A busy calendar of events is being planned for Michael and Godfrey and they would be pleased to accept any invitations to visit people as the calendar allows.
