This week we closed up shop and 27 of us piled into 2 taxi vans to visit Toepista and her newborn daughter Happy Deborah. Yes, “Happy” is part of her name chosen by the Sseko crew! It is our custom that when an employee is pregnant, she receives a new name and in this case, Toepista, was called Mama Happy. That name is now passed on to Deborah. We adore the little things that are becoming Sseko traditions!
On the way to Toepista’s home, our van was filled with fierce competitors claiming victory in our road trip games. If you’ve ever been to Uganda, you know that even routine trips can become quite the adventure. We’d rather have fun with the adventure than avoid it!
The rowdiness died down as each one held precious Happy Deborah in awe. We welcomed a new Sseko sister into the world today. We couldn’t be more proud of her mom and thankful for a safe and healthy delivery. We can’t wait to be a part of Happy’s life as she grows into the strong, beautiful, smart woman we know she’ll become.
