Keep Impoverished Refugees in School in Uganda

Happy Thanksgiving Holidays

Sudanese children need education in Uganda

Without your help 300 Sudanese refugee boys and girls cannot go to schools in Uganda.

Hope Ofiriha sponsors 5 students to attend a primary school in Uganda in 2010. Two of our previous volunteers are individual sponsoring certain students to go to expensive (by Ugandan standard) private boarding primary and secondary schools. Although this is an excellent opportunity, we are finding that volunteers are being pestered to sponsor individuals, and this is creating a certain amount of jealousy. We would like to promote sponsorship for both boys and girls on the basis of achievement so that children have fair chance of getting sponsorship. Therefore, we are looking for sponsors to pay all or part of these fees which work out at a total of $420 per year per student or monthly $35.

Two of our sponsored students (Okello, Jolly) will join secondary school in 2011. They have sat for their primary leaving exams, and we are expecting the two will do well.

Quote from Okello – beneficiary;
To my sponsor whom I don’t know  – I could not get an education and have a good future – but because my sponsor is kind "I have a good future.

We thank our Globalgiving donors for their ongoing support and Hope Ofiriha looks forward in working with you in 2011- and years to come.

The staff of Hope Ofiriha and volunteers wishes you a Happy Thanksgiving Holiday season, to your family, friends, and colleagues!
