Good News for our Kids in Uganda

Older students help the younger ones

Here at the end of our Ugandan school year, we have three good news stories for you!

First, students have taken their national exams. This is a tremendous milestone for our students. Many of them never thought they could finish primary school - and this year eleven of our students have taken the secondary O-Level exams! 

Secondly, I'm happy to report that we are ready to complete the second phase of the desk project. A generous donor gave the remaing $2,500 to complete this part of the project, and Primary 4 & 5 classes at Calvary Primary School will have new desks for the next school term! 

Every time the children see improvements at their school, they know somebody cares about them. When we believe that these young lives are worth investing in, they also believe!

Finally,today(December 3)is #GivingTuesday - and Microsoft's YouthSpark Initiative is doubling your donations to our education program!

If you give $20, they give another $20.
If you give $100, they give another $100.
If you give $1,000, they will also give $1,000. 

To have your donation matched, use this link for our project  Education & Support For 500 Children In Uganda. Funds will go to support children in Uganda by paying school fees and providing food and supplies.

Thank you so much for lifting these children up and showing them that they can succeed!
