Mengo Home Girls Visit the Zoo

This past October, our girl’s in Mengo home were surprised with a trip to the zoo! A very generous donor that made a special connection with the youth at Mengo presented HALO with the funding necessary for the day trip to visit the exhibits. The youth and mentors at the home couldn’t have been more thrilled for the opportunity to travel outside of Kampala to neighboring city Entebbe for the trip. Most of the girls, including the mentors, had never had the opportunity to visit the zoo before, which only increased the anticipation. The group set off from their home with their packed lunches in tow and arrived at the zoo about mid-day. The girls spent time with all of the exhibits, but especially enjoyed observing the gorillas. One of the most brave of the girls, Brenda, even had a chance to hold a snake!

Mengo home truly appreciates the incredibly generous donation and the opportunity to learn more about the animals inhabiting their beautiful country.
