Thanks to help Sponsor South Sudanese Refugee children in Uganda.You helped pay school fees for 25 pupils out of 300 children this year. Your kids do not stay out of school, instead wandering every day to school they stayed in boarding. You have shown that they are future assets to their future and nation. You fed them, give them medicine when they are sick, clothed them in new school uniforms, and put their first pair of shoes on their feet. Because of you, their future is full of opportunities and surprises
Hope Ofiriha wishes you a Merry Christmas, and a prosperous new year!
There is no political agreement reach between the government and SPLA in opposition despite the IGAD sponsored peace talks in Adisababa since the alleged coup. South Sudan is getting worse every day, and hope for peace is weak as the clashes continue to take place in Jonglei state between the regime and rebel forces.
Thanks to Sponsor South Sudanese Refugee children in Uganda.
With your funding, the charity kept 32 pupils in schools. Your help goes very far in providing these kids with the basic education they would not have access without you.
Two staff have been running the sponsorship programme with great enthusiasm. Most of the pupils sponsored go to schools in northern Uganda because of affordable school fees, and few pupils attend schools in Kampala areas.
Three board members have drawn up the rules for the project, so that money is used wisely for those who deserve help. We sponsor each child per family, and from different tribes of refugee families who are living in exile. Unfortunately, few student have had to be removed out due to poor attendance or poor performance.
The Students at each school, have to nominate a fellow student to be their representative. He or her reports back to the charity and is the main link with that school.
In November 2014, We organized a mini graduation party, held at "Kawotto B". The Nursing student is the first ever younger refugee girl to graduate with "Advanced Diploma" through the sponsorship initiative. As Ngo, we are proud of her achievement. She will be a new row model for other refugee girls to replicate her journey of fighting poverty while at the same time pursuing her studies. We had a good turnout with 62 parents and students. They were very positive about the programme, and it was very rewarding to see their apparent gratitude and commitment to do well.
In the next quarter a new field update report be posted, so you get to know the educational progress these children are making to give them a bright future.
