Help provide refresher training for our Leader

$50 $2,935
Raised Remaining

The year is coming to an end and other than the Sinpagore miracle that i was lucky to witness, there is nothing else planned. I have not travelled away from Home (Uganda) since i came back from Singapore. I have equally not had an opportunity for any refresher training within the country. It seems like there will be none until 2015. 

I'm otally convinced that it is imprtant for me to continue making friends when i travel to attend the refresher courses both for myself and the organization. I'm one person who believes that a wider network is a good catchment for project fundraising and I'm hopeful  that this will one day be  vital for our fundraising effort.

I pray that our friends well wishers and donors continue to support my training needs so that I can continue to spread the word about our projects. I am grateful for all the support. Thank you always.

Greetings to all our friends and donors. I am writing this report from my hotel room in Singapore and what an eye opening experience the Singaporean success miracle is for anyone from my part of the world. I had a nice travel to Singapore though I had to devise ways of getting the travel ticket. I have also benefitted a lot from the training. Most important the weather was good for me.

I am undergoing training on Environment Protection and Management and we all appreciate how important the environment is for humanity and continuity of the human race. It is amazing how things are done here and I am more than happy to share this acquired knowledge with people in my community and see how we incorporate some in our own community projects albeit on a small scale.

I continue to make friends on these trips both for myself and the organization. I am hoping that this is vital for our fundraising efforts and should pay off in the near future. I pray that you continue to support my training needs so that I can continue to spread the word about our projects. I am grateful for all the support. Thank you always.

I would like to send my regards to our donors and well wishers. I appreciate all the support and assistance you extend to us. We are committed to continue working with you as you continue to help the Foundation achieve her project objectives. 

I have not had any training opportunities, either local or international since i sent the last report. I could not go to the Trade Policy Training Centre in Afrcia - Arusha Tanzania because i was offered a partial scholarship and could not raise the required contribution. I missed the March and May 2014 intake but tried to make the best of the time i would have otherwise spent at the training centre. I am glad my hard work has already yielded results.

I am glad to inform you that i managed to get a two week Fellowship to Netherland at the begining of 2015 for two weeks. It is an all expenses paid trip and i will be happy network and create awareness for the organisation while in the Netherlands. I am also expecting positive results from Singapore for a one week training scheduled for September 2014, all expenses paid trip. I equally should network and fundraise for the Foundation for the one week i will be in Asia. 

It is all exciting news and am happy that something is coming through. I am however expected to cater for my own transport to and from the airport in my country and was also asked to pay an application fee for the Netherland Fellowship after they had selected my application. 

I kindly request for your support always as we continue to strive to meet our set objectives. Thank you always for the support. 

A blessed New Year 2014 to all our donors friends and well wishers.  Thank you for your support through 2013. 

After an interesting year of travel abroad and training, One offer to kick start the new year is already in. I am expected to attend a 6 week (3 Modules) traning at the trade policy training centre in Africa, Arusha Tanzania. It is always a ajoy for me to take time off and go to different places and network for the Foundation. I will be delighted to go if conditions and circumstances allow. I have attached the admission to the training course. I hope i get a comfirmation for the scholarship soon. I can onl go if am given full or partial scholarship. 

It is very important to take part in these rainings because i benefit alot from the exposure. It is equally imprtant for me to attend because i represent the Foundation and talk about what we do and stand for whenever i find myself. It is for this reason that i am grateful for whatever help you can extend to this project more so if i am given a partial scholarship and need to fork out something. I am always willing to make the time and attend. I I am also happy to apply what i have learnt from the training to my work and organisational context. I am grateful for your help. 

Happy 2014 Once again


The Next time i write a report for this project will be 2014. It is amazing how time flies! It seems like yesterday that we were celebrating a new year and fast forward, we are talking about 2013 year end. Life is a not sure anyone would deny that. There have been lots of good opportunities  in 2013 and am grateful for the support thats was extended to the project in one way or another. I am also happy to note that i fully utilised the available opportunities. 

I am grateful to you all because am ending the year on a high note. I was able to attend a training on Online fundraising, Climate Change and Green low carbon development and then International Trade and Development. All these fields are very relevant to the activities i am involved in working with local communities that face different challenges and most important, i continue to make friends for the organisation during my travels. I look forward to more travels engagements in 2014.moreso with your support.

With your help and assistance, i am happy to inform you that i will be graduating with an Post Grad Diploma (Internediate) in International Trade Policy and Trade Law from The Trade Policy Training Centre In Africa (Arusha, Tanzania) on the 24th November 2013. You will remember that the primary reason i put up this project was because i had a partial scholarship with Trade Policy Training Centre in Africa and am happy that with your help, we are begining to yield results. I will continue to look out for these scholarships and with the exposure from the scholarships i should be able to continue to foster and forge worthwhile partnerships for the organisation. 

I still need support to attend the graduation and i will be happy if you can help. 

I wish each one of you a Merry X - Mas and a Happy New Year 2014.
