In loving memory…
24th June 2019, marks the passing of a dear friend, Henrietta Rose.
The extraordinary breadth of her interests and the many ways she served her family, her friends and her community were evidenced by the tributes paid to her. One of the great loves of her life was Sky Is The Limit school in Fort Portal, Uganda. As a valued and active trustee of Ecologia Youth Trust, Henrietta was an inspiring example of commitment to the project. Under our umbrella, Henrietta raised thousands of pounds for Sky Is The Limit, to buy piglets and fruit trees for the farm, sink a well for fresh water, build a toilet block, buy classroom furniture and a new truck to transport the children to school.
In memory of Henrietta Rose, we have set up a memorial fund for Sky Is The Limit One of our goals was to rebuild the classrooms, destroyed by termites, into a permanent brick structure. It will stand the test of time as a testament to Henrietta’s love and dedication to this small but important school in Uganda.
I am so happy and proud to let you know that the 3-Classroom block is under construction this month! Funded by the Toy Trust and your donations, it will be completed in July. It was my great pleasure to visit Sky Is The Limit in early June to celebrate the completion of the Kitchen and Dining Room and the inauguration of the School Classrooms. I was able to witness Henrietta’s contribution to the school, hear everyone’s appreciation for her and Tom, and their gratitude for Ecologia’s support. Their love has renewed my own commitment to this exceptional school and its dedicated staff.
Happy as a King I am
For the gift of being at
Sky’s Limit School
A spick and span place for learning
Where we keep the pot boiling
As proud as a peacock I am
For our directress and the teachers
Who don’t pour cold water on us
But work hand in hand
For the best of our future
As sweet as honey
so are the sponsors
Who have not thrown dust in our eyes
But have funded the construction
Of the nice and robust school buildings
In the blink of an eye
adding more beauty at Sky.
