As part of his first United States tour to educate American’s and spread awareness of TASAAGA, in July 2019 Bruhan had an opportunity to speak with the wonderful congregation at Resurrection Lutheran Church in Woodbury, as suburb of Minneapolis, Minnesota. During his meeting, Bruhan shared the story of TASAAGA and encouraged involvement from those in attendance. While Friends of TASAAGA is not religiously affiliated, we are continuously seeking support and guidance from those interested in bettering the educational opportunities of our students in Uganda.
During a recent US tour, Bruhan Mubiru took time to speak with a group of high school students at Robert Morgan High School in Miami. He shared the story of TASAAGA, the differences between Ugandan and US school systems, and stories about his students.
In return for his presentation, the students from Robert Morgan donated 30 packets of books to Friends of TASAAGA that Bruhan could take home with him.
We at Friends of TASAAGA extend a HUGE THANK YOU to Mrs. Rachael Manasco for inviting Bruhan to speak, and to all students who attended to learn more and donate books.
To ensure TASAAGA’s Secondary School students have access to the best education, Friends of TASAAGA raised funds to donate a science lab to be used for biology and chemistry classes.
In January 2019, Friends of TASAAGA raised money for 10 new computers for use at the Secondary and Vocational School. With access to computers, students will now how have the ability to learn important computer skills, as well as access to the internet for learning purposes and school work.

Just over a month after a fire devastated Kimi Island, the Friends of TASAAGA family raised over $6,000 and 3 volunteers flew themselves to Uganda with a bag full of tools to help Bruhan and his team rebuild the clinic. The new structure is reenforced with aluminum siding to reduce the risk of it catching fire again and has solar panels to ensure cheaper and more consistent energy for the medical team that works there. The clinic houses a pharmacy, and exam, antenatal, and delivery rooms. We want to extend a massive thank you to all of our donors; the volunteers who donated their time, money, and tools (which they left with Bruhan); and most importantly, to Bruhan and the construction team who have been working tirelessly since October to support Kimi residents.
Updated December 5, 2017: Friends of TASAAGA mentioned in Ugandan outlet, Daily Monitor, for support during clinic reconstruction.
