Congratulations Exam Grades Are In!

Dorcus to school now
Dorcus to school now

Last year YOU gave 37 students out of 68 free education, healthcare, meals, shoes, school uniforms, and school supplies.
We want you to know that YOUR hard work is paying off! Every year your Primary 7 class is required to take the big Primary Leaving Exam. The senior 4 students as well as senior 6.


This test has the power to decide their entire future. It will determine if they will be accepted into the secondary school or vocational school of their choice. Students who do not score high enough are often forced to go to a school that provides a poorer quality of education or they may have to seek out an apprenticeship rather than attending a formalized vocational school.
This year, Sanyu Achora Primary 7 students received a B and that and that is a second grade Phiona get a second grade in senior 4 ALL of YOUR students passed! We are waiting on Robert senior 6
Thanks to your new year 2015 were we are waiting on more children to do it as well, the children’s home. Vocational primary school is on its way ALL of your Primary 7 students will be given high quality education when their new school opens on February 9th!


YOUR support is the reason these children have a chance at a happy, vibrant future that many children are not so blessed to have.
The more YOU help, the less likely these children will be trapped in poverty, unable to fulfill their dreams. Because of YOU they will not miss out on valuable education. Even though we are opening the Secondary School, we still have a lot of construction to do before it is completed! If you want to help us ensure that these children have a place they call home and all of YOUR future students have the opportunity to get a high quality education, please consider giving to our new project on global giving; Build A home and School for HIV/AIDS Orphans in Uganda.

Cool Stuff We are Doing!

Jaja Byakulya Kubula
Jaja Byakulya Kubula

This past year 2014 YOU bought land for the children's Oprhange Home,Vocatyion Primary School and a reacreation centrel!

The work was completed on the 18th of october 2014. You are a warrior in the battle against poverty.

Your weapon?

47 pencils in the hands of 47 little girls and boys .

Why? Because you know the only way to successfully combat poverty is with an education.

You are one smart cookie. Unfortunately, getting an education in Uganda is not free. If a child cannot afford a uniform, tuition or school supplies, classroom doors are often slammed in their face. And if a child is female, she has even less opportunities available to her simply because she is a girl.  and most of them drop out of school before their completion of primary seven.

You are stepping in and empowering a community of girls and boys with a vocational carriculum.

You are equipping them with education ,pencils that they will raise to fight poverty. Thank you!  each child will hav vocational skills and a pencil in their hand because of YOU.

Each child will be healthy because you provide them all with access to clean water and plates heavy with nutritious food daily. Each girl will be healthy because you also provide them with support when they transition from small girls to young women and Men.

You are winning this battle and poverty is running scared.

each brick  costs $1 to purchase a brick in Uganda,0.02 for a pencil yet this small expense can prevent girls from going to school every day.

Are you going to let poverty stand in your way?

We didn’t think so.

Your mother would be SO proud.

You are changing the world for a young girl named Dorcus.

Much Love..

YOU Made 2014 Wonderful! and worth a living.

Books and geting ready for school
Books and geting ready for school
YOUR support this year has given all of your 68 children exactly what they need to reach their dreams.
YOU have given them free education, meals, healthcare, shoes, school uniforms, and school supplies. These are things that we may take for granted, but without these vital resources, YOUR students couldn't go to school.
Over this past year, YOU have helped Mama Africa the Voice Uganda reach more children than ever before. YOU are to build a primary vocational school this year 2015
If YOU had not stepped in, they would be trapped in poverty and even their children would be more likely to stay in poverty. They would be more vulnerable to predators and HIV/AIDS. YOUR girls would be more likely to marry or have children before they're ready. 
YOUR generosity has changed the course of their lives. Because of YOU, they will be leaders in their communities when they grow up. They will be doctors, lawyers, politicians, business leaders...the possibilities are endless!
I hope YOU feel the profound magnitude of the gift YOU have given this year.
The below excerpt comes from a letter written by Hadijah written to Mama Africa the Voice Uganda Board of Directors and the directors. Hadijjah is one child that Mama Africa (thanks to you, our donors) has supported in school. In her humbling letter, Hadijjah thanks Mama Africa for their support and she has permitted us to share her letter with you. We have left the letter in Hadijjah's words.

"I come from a single family of eight where my mum is the bread winner of the family. My dad died long ago that even I can’t remember his face how it looks. Being a single mum [my mom] - to educate those children was very difficult so she distributed others [children] to her sisters who were available. They [my siblings] were made house help where they don’t attend school and this made them not to be interested in school. The three of them, who were older, got married earlier because of this -- because they don’t have any other option so they decided getting married is what can help from the suffering they were getting from my mum's sisters.
My mum saw this was not helping so she took us in to live with her. The only business she could do was to sell Malwa {local alcohol and marijuana}. She did this her whole life until she was found by the government and she had to serve her sentence in jail after she did she came back and got back into alcohol.

This was the most difficult moment in my life as I had no dad, no relatives, nothing at all that gave me the hope to live. But one thing I kept despite the fact I am coming from a Muslim family on saying and telling my sisters is that we are serving a living God. He will not let us down and that our tears will not go to waste. The place we were living was hell: it was near a pub where you could find beer flowing inside our house. We couldn’t do anything because we didn’t have any option to live in a better place. My Mum made a deal to exchange me for a debt of 1 Million shillings she had with a man on the village which I hated the most.

When I was in primary school, I kept telling Apio and Akello how I will go to school and college. I didn’t know where the money will come from, but what I knew was that I would fulfill my dream no matter what it would take.

Luckily the Lord sent Mama Africa the Voice Uganda {a nonprofit Organization] who came to my rescue. I thank God for that. When my mother was in jail and we stayed alone in that dirty house -- no relatives, no friends, no mother, no dad -- our mother and protector was God. On behalf of my family, I take this opportunity to say we are really grateful for everything Mama Africa the voice Uganda has done for us. This is where Mama Africa the voice Uganda took over. They visited us at our place, advised us and gave us food that could last us for a whole week. We were happy then so that we didn’t have to depend on only one meal that was in school.

When I was taken in by Mama Africa the voice Uganda, I knew I couldn’t be the same again. In terms of education, I could live the life I had longed for which is to have education, this is the best gift someone has ever given to me, but I couldn’t do it without the advices of Aunt Winnie the director of Mama Africa and the Board Members with the sponsors you have shown me how great you are. You have really helped me a lot. You have shown me that life does not end where somebody is raised and that even that little fly has dreams and can really work hard to fulfill them.

The past of someone does not determine the future of somebody. I believe that now and forever. I was almost giving up because I couldn’t bare the pressure anymore, but once told me that whatever you want in life will not come from a silver platter -- one needs to struggle in order to get it. And a humble person does not get tired until she gets whatever she wants. This means that my life will not end in Kosovo slums and other rural areas of Uganda. I know I am going places with the little knowledge I have I can help someone who has given up in life and really needs help or encouragement that he or she can’t get it. I can put a smile on somebody.

Given the opportunity, I would really love to give back to the society, to put some smiles on the children’s faces like they put on me. Thank you big time and love you all."
