Where we are in that time where we need your prayers, this time of year is also the rainy season. The rains started in April and have been very heavy. Many of the schools are in areas with red mad soil and that means that even four-wheel drive vehicles cannot gain access.

September is back to school time for many of the children that we support. It is usually a time of great excitement for students as they are keen to share stories of the schools holidays, vacation activities with us and their friends and the gifts and presents they received from their sponsors those that have. For students who live in the rural and inner city communities we serve it can be a time of great anxiety and they struggle to find the necessary school supplies to start the school term. You can help. Give us two minutes of your time.
We initially believed we could get land at $10,000 but land has increase and increases day to day currently we came across land and the range is $12,000 to $15,000 we have the $5,510https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/raise-a-roof-for-mama-africa-orhanage-and-vocation/ that has been raise so far under this campaign and its held in the bank until we get the full amount to purchase land at least 2-3 acres that will have a children’s village.

Resolve to make second school term and the next 6 months 2013 as the time of Giving!
As we waved goodbye to the School holiday and welcome the New school term, we hope that you’ll resolve to make 2013 a year of giving. For the next hours you can set up a monthly donation, receive 2013 tax benefits, and have the first month of your donation doubled by Global Giving!
Your monthly donation of just $5 will provide school supplies every month for one of the kids at the orphanage. Or, your donation of $21 a month will pay all education costs for one child every month.
If you can afford a little more, your monthly gift of $25 will put food on the plate, put shoes in her feet of a child like Joy.R. every day.
Joy’s father left their home while she was very young and he is thought to be dead and she was brought to the orphanage when she was just 4 years. She was maltrinutioned and ill, and we weren’t sure if she would survive. But she’s a fighter, and today she’s approaching her 11 birthday. Thanks to donors like you, she’s thriving, and with your support, we’ll help her grow up strong and healthy.
Whether you’re ringing in this quarter of the year with a fabulous party, or watching the ball drop from the comfort of your own couch, we hope you have a lovely evening and wish you the Happiest of the next six months
Moms and girls waiting as they learn to make Liquid soap at the Workshop
As we come to the mid of the year JUNE 2013, we are focusing on supporting our Moms and children in the slums with sustainability skills!
Our former student Harriet Kabenge brought four friends with her to Mama Africa this week, her third visit, to run our very first Soap making Workshop in Slum community of kosovo.
Harriet, Our student who has become a specialist in breaking the cycle of poverty amongst women here in the Center in Kosovo, gave the first ever in 2013 workshop on fighting poverty to more than 80 Mothers and children at Mama Africa in Kosovo Uganda. The community was really interested and the talk was given in Luganda and lusoga to ensure everyone understood the information that was being provided. The workshop covered the importance of sustainability, women Empowerment and how to reduce the number of violated women due to financial constraints’ and included the opportunity for a Liquid soap Market check from one of the team.
We also launched the Skills empowerment short courses this week with the same team, distributing books, pens for their notes. The plan is specifically aimed at children of Mama Africa, women from the community and the entire community to eradicate, break the cycle of poverty locally and improve their Income in their families and all the days of life, the time deemed most important for a economic development.
We are part of GlobalGiving’s campaign that says, "The world is full of problems, GlobalGiving is full of solutions.” You can do this through a gift. If you would like to support Mom's and girls in Uganda at Mama Africa, whilst gifting your Mom a handmade scarf and set of worry dolls then please take a look at our website: www.mamaafricaorganization.org.
