At last the hostel for blind and visually impaired pupils at Katente West Primary School in Mubende, Uganda, is almost finished!. There is an update in Sue Errington's report of the visit she made in September. But of course, now that the building itself is complete, the next focus is to complete building a block of latrines - and then furnish and equip it. Tom Errington completed the Great West Run in aid of the hostel for visually impaired children at Katente West Primary School - donations are still welcome at http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/TomErrington1


To celebrate 20 years of DDE we have published a new brochure and have set ourselves a target to raise £100,000 to fund our work with schools and communities across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay over the next 3-5 years.

‘This is one of the most innovative and exciting community projects to be found in the South West… Through its activities, it is a key player in Devon in celebrating cultural diversity and challenging injustice, both of which it does energetically and enthusiastically.’  Martyn Goss, Exeter Diocese
