Christmas 2015:


Throwback "One Year Kisoboka" celebration and Christmas Market

Our birthday celebration at the 6th of december in Tholey was really amazing!

We've been impressed that so many interested people came to see what happened in the first year of Kisoboka. Thanks to our special guest Joaquina Siquice-Rawe for making it possible to transport a bit of the African spirit with the magic of music to Tholey. When all people sang together "Jambo Bwana" and one group played the drums, you felt far away - like in Africa.

After that we started with the "offical" part of the evening by presenting many pictures and videos from Entebbe to show the people what Kisoboka achieved in his first year as organization. Thanks to all the people who made this evening so special!

 

One week later we took part at the christmas market in Lebach. Besides the handmade crafts we brought with us from Uganda we also offered our year calender for 2016 and selfmade dainties. It was a really nice and successful weekend for us!

 

Have a look at the picture gallery from our birthday event and from the christmas market!
