SPE Celebrates 10 Years
10 Years of Soft Power Education
On Saturday 7th November 2009, Soft Power Education celebrated 10 years of working in Uganda and over 400 community members came to help us celebrate at the Amagezi Education Centre. Volunteers and staff alike had worked hard to prepare the site with a fresh coat of paint to the buildings, lots of weeding and an early start!
We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped with the organisation both before and on the day, we would not have been able to do it without you all. Here’s to the next 10 years!
The Royal Visit
His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex visits Soft Power Education
On Sunday 18th September 2011 we were honoured to receive a visit from His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex who had been in Kenya working with the international arm of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme. He came to Jinja on a one day visit taking in the war memorials, Owen Falls Dam (opened by the Queen in 1947) and then Soft Power Education.
A huge thank you firstly to all of the SPE staff who made this day possible, secondly to the staff at The British High Commission in Kampala and of course to His Royal Highness The Earl of Wessex for visiting Soft Power Education.
