Our children are writing a great letter to you

Complete wall
Complete wall

I know you would love to hear the news:

We’ve had progress in the construction project you are funding in Mpigi, Uganda, your generous donation has enabled us to complete the orphanage wall including tying on the concrete ring beam to help hold the walls strong, this week the veranda columns will also be fixed and surely we will be done with the walls!

“Am glad we will be shifting to our new property soon, I will be sleeping in the first room, it’s cool, it’s nice” Patrick

“I can’t wait to see the projects that are going to be done on the property, especially the chicken and water projects that will benefit both the children and my community” Local council 1 chairman Kitaanula village where the orphanage is located

“Our donors are doing a great job, three of them have given to the project more than two times which is great and two of them have volunteered to be our ambassadors in the USA, one ambassador mobilized her friends and family to donate on the Globalgiving bonus day that took place on February 12th” James-Project leader giving progress report to the staff during the executive meeting

Now that we are done with the walls, we are beginning on the roof, good news! We have funds enough for the roof timber, roofing nails and labour but we don’t have iron sheets, this is a rainy season, our engineers have advised to fix iron sheets as soon as possible to avoid weakening and collapse of the walls due to heavy downpour. It takes seconds for the building that has taken one year under construction to collapse but only six generous people will save it from collapsing, if we could only get six donors to commit $200 this month, the roof will be fixed immediately and we will save all the dollars we have injected in this project.

Our children are drawing great pictures and designing a letter with your name in it, if you will give $200 to this project this month you will receive that wonderful letter with colored pictures as a gift of appreciation!

Donors that will give from March 20th  to April 6th   will receive the children’s gift of appreciation, Isn’t it great?
