*New & Improved* KUZA House

IMG_0199 17 students now live in KUZA House!  Earlier this summer we moved to a new location... Why the move?  To be closer to the universities and to better meet the needs of our growing KUZA university population.

The new house is situated on a quiet street on Lubaga Hill, just down the street from the Catholic church.  While university is in session, 17 students live at the house, pitching in to cook and clean to keep the house running smoothly. A house mum oversees the day to day operations.

During the high school holidays, we host 2 dozen high school students for retreats at the house.  Students love to come to the city and explore!  For some of our students, coming to KUZA is the first time they've left their villages to visit the city.

The new KUZA House even has guest rooms, equipped to comfortably house up to 4 guests. The US team stayed here in August, and experienced some of the quietest nights they've ever had in Uganda!  In the future, these rooms will be rented to generate income for KUZA Uganda.

All students share rooms, and our handy open closets mean they can easily store things within sight (and see what clothes a roommate might have to share!)

Our neighbors have lovely gardens that can be glimpsed from our balcony. Our yard is a flat grassy field.... perfect for hosting 60 people to Vision Day 2015 or playing an impromptu game of soccer.

Our peek-a-boo view of the city is gorgeous any time of day.

Come visit any time. Rest a while. And experience life with KUZA family at KUZA House.
