Maama Africa the Voice Uganda’ received Shafic thought the local council 3years ago now. It wasn't long before a little boy dressed in some rather smelly clothes popped out from behind a truck with his hand out.
He was holding a bottle of the infamous glue that street children sniff to remain high, not quite so hungry and rather warm. This little fellow's name was sula. He was wearing two very dirty and torn jackets. It is rather cold at night and very warm during the day. He keeps the jackets on so he doesn't lose them for the evening cold sleep on the sidewalk or in street in different shelters..
This is not unusual. Each of the hundreds of children living on the streets has his or her own story to tell. Often these children have forgotten to tell a 100% truthful story, but Maama Africa intends to follow up on everything he told us and find the best way to help him. Shafic has been with us for 3 years. He is now over 11 and is in Class 3.
He missed a great deal of school before coming to us. He struggles as a student due to the lack of a solid foundation when young. He is a hard worker and very responsible. Rather quiet, he is always ready to lend a hand. Turn around and he will be there and say "Let me help you with that. ".
He is in love with automobiles, Radio mechanics and hopes we will be able to help him get his School done and mechanics dream. Shafic missed school because he was admitted but surprisingly after being discharged, he was given exams on request and he was the 3rd in class out of 47 students. Early in the year, a wonderful donor came along and assisted him to get his school fees paid, and renew the parts of his uniform that were no longer useable.
He now has a sponsor. He has four years more of primary school then takes his examination. He is hoping to take a degree in mechanics a course in university. One day we believe Shafic will be independent, employed and grateful. Thank you for considering this wonderful opportunity.
We have come a long way together. This year 2013 our primary, secondary and Vocation children are back in school for their third term. This will mark the completion of their third school term. When we asked if you wish to go for further studies (college), guess what the answer was? All of them said yes! That moment was really satisfying and encouraging for us and this has been made possible by you all.
Times are changing. From the point where we were trying to prevent child marriage, women Violence, reduce the number of street children , we now seem to be stepping into a new phase...a phase where the real potential of these girls has just started to bloom. In this report we would like to show you the difference you are making by your contribution. Attached is a link to a short film about one of our school girls Madiina which is just a glimpse of what your contribution does.
Your generosity is making an immediate difference in the lives of the girls at Food for Life at Maama Africa the Voice Uganda. The funds are going toward the education, food, uniform, stationary and the overall development of the girls. You are making a difference!
David’s past paper. Who ever knew he would?
Thanks to the continued support in the past, present and future, of you our donors, your 63 Oprhaned children locally worked hard to produce amazing results in schools this first school term of 2013, of over 200 indigenous children. What is even more special about these results is that many of our children came from different straggling Backgrounds, like David was believed to be dead because he was over Mal-nutrition and his Background tea red down and broke my heart always. through the ranks of the school since the start back in 2010 and we helped them through gradual development to get where they are today, teaching them and share with their new susters and the fellow community, thanks to donations.
Over all the subjects, including Mathematics, English, sciences, dance and drama and PE the averages were very good; kinder: 92%, 1st grade: 84%, 2nd grade: 79%, 3rd grade (photo of David): 80%, 4th grade: 71%, 5th grade: 77% and 6th grade: 79%. One must bear in mind that 4th grade is a huge step up from third grade, so an average of 71% is very respectable.
The fact that the school exists at all is a huge pat on the back for you, our donors, and we thank you now and in the future for your continued support – we are looking ofward and believing God for our own premise for the school, home and a place to play games cheers
We belive and belive to have our own Land for the training centre for our own school!
