This summer, IKAR members Cipra Nemeth and Scott Shulman visited the remote village of Katira, Uganda, a community we have helped support since 2010. IKAR partnered with NGO Innovation: Africa to bring Israeli solar power and lighting to Katira’s primary school, clinic, and high school. You’ll see video and hear their dramatic witness accounts of the lives saved and thousands helped. Come and participate in deciding our next project as we continue our critical work in Uganda.
Light refreshments served, including Ugandan tea and coffee. Street parking is available – but please read the street signs!
In the developing world, education is the single most effective way to improve children’s health and likelihood of survival, protect their dignity, and work toward a more just and dynamic society. Since 2011, our community has been in partnership with the village of Katira, Uganda. Through Innovation: Africa, we have brought Israel-developed solar technology to the primary school, medical clinic and to the newly constructed, IKAR-funded secondary school.
