When our Beacon of Hope robotics team, the CyberKnights, visited Seattle this November, they created a groundswell of support and attention. And for good reason – they are the first Ugandan robotics team to enter into the global competition league, FIRST Robotics, and their participation represents another major step forward for the Beacon of Hope school and its enrichment programs.
King’s High School robotics program generously hosted our team, and their mentorship and team spirit helped the CyberKnights build an entirely new robot after their own was lost in transit to the U.S. The entire visit, organized by Pilgrim Africa’s Seattle office, offers another insight as to how the Pilgrim community can come together to do truly inspiring, life-changing things.
