Visit to Revival Centre, Matugga July 2018

In July 2018 four more visitors were hosted by Bishop Ivan and Madam Allen.  For Professor Marion Hetherington this was her 4th visit and as part of her plans she and her student Sarah Nottingham (recently graduated from University of Leeds, School of Psychology) assisted in taking weights and heights of champions, day students and boarders. 

This task is undertaken to check that children are growing well and that any problems are spotted and reported to the Directors of the Revival Centre.  This is the third year that weights and heights have been recorded along with some research on the local diets of children, staff and community members.

The research on diet involves looking at the amount offered to children, the amount consumed and converting this into data such as energy intake as well as macronutrient and micronutrient content of the diet.  It is important that the children receive sufficient energy each day as well as the essential minerals and vitamins to ensure good health.

 

 

 

 

 

During their visit Marion and Sarah took a 13 hr car ride to the north eastern region of Teso to visit colleagues at Agributec in Serere.  The journey was long but a great adventure to see more of this beautiful country and to meet experts in agriculture, business and technology.

Marion and Sarah were looked after by Madam Christine Anyait and Mr Okello Patrick (director, Agributec).
