An integral part of SEARCH’s success is actively engaging with the local community. One of the ways the SEARCH Eastern Uganda team interacts with the Mbale community through participating in monthly corporate league games. Last month, the SEARCH Eastern Uganda staff participated in several games including football, netball, volleyball, indoor games etc. The SEARCH football team played three 30-minute games against Mbale Local Government team (result 2-2), vs Livingstone University (result 0-0), and vs Shell Elgon (result 4-1 in favor of Shell). The SEARCH netball team played four game againts Mbale S.S, Club Eltanjia, Livingstone University and MTN. The next league games will take place on December 13th.
