Denis Kwesiga, a senior at Bridgewater State University had a visit from his mom last month, a the Honorable Prima Ndeka, Mayor of Rakai, Uganda. Mayor Ndeka combined this visit with a Ugandan meeting in Washington, D.C.
The town of Rakai has an award winning football (soccer) team but many of their players do not have cleats! (Neither do they have matching jerseys).
The many wonderful people from the Town of Bridgewater worked together to arrange the donation of lightly used soccer cleats and sporting goods for Mayor Ndeka to send back to Rakai!
Bridgewater Youth Soccer donated some cleats they had collected and The Dome has set up a collection box. As well as individual Bridgewater citizens who reached out to collect items which Mayor Ndeka brought home with her. Denis & Mayor Ndeka say a HUGE THANK YOU! They are very grateful for the outpouring of generosity! Anyone who wishes to contribute here is their FB page : Rakai Youths For Action and Development – RYAD or contact Denis directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
