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!

Show them some love this School holy Day!

Their success and bright outlook for the future is all down to your generosity. Without you, they would be spending their days worrying about where their next meal would be coming from instead of playing with their gifts or presents! That you send them monthly.

As GlobalGiving employees, my colleague Katherine and I get to talk to a lot of organizations doing great work every day.  Every once and a while we’re lucky enough to get a chance to see some of the work that those groups are doing in their communities.  Today was one of those lucky days! 

We arrived in Kampala yesterday, jetlagged but excited about our upcoming visits with GlobalGiving partners in Uganda.  This morning we work up, refreshed after a good night’s sleep, and maneuvered through the city traffic.  After 45 minutes we arrived in Kulekaana, which means ‘the shouting place,’ the slum where Mama Africa works.  We were greeted enthusiastically by Winnie, the organization’s founder.  She was dressed in a beautiful green traditional dress with “Mama Africa” stitched proudly across the front.

Winnie gave us a tour of the Mama Africa facilities.  There are several rooms, each which serve a variety of purposes.  We saw the main office, which also serves as the store room for the children’s food; the girls’ room, where younger children sleep two to a bed until more space can be purchased; and the tailoring room, which doubles as the boys’ bedroom at night.  Throughout our mini-tour, Winnie’s passion and drive to help the children Mama Africa supports was clear. 

Winnie shared her story with us: she grew up in the slum where she now works, part of a large family with an illiterate mother and an absent father.  She was always driven to complete her education, but when her family couldn’t afford school fees she was forced to drop out.  A pastor eventually helped her pay for her education, and she was able to return to school.  Even while taking classes, she worked to earn money so that her siblings and other poorer children in the slum could afford to go to school.  “When I got a job that earned $25 a month, I thought ‘WOW!’” Winnie said.  “You can imagine the meal we had that day.  It was big!”

She started informally sponsoring children in 1997, and formally incorporated as a non-profit in 2008.  She now supports 63 youth with scholarships, food, medical care, and mental support.  Older children receive vocational training, and we met several of the youth who have completed their education and are  now employed.  She runs an efficient program – spending only about $1,200 a month for all of Mama Africa’s programs.  When she doesn’t receive enough through GlobalGiving and other donors, she covers the costs herself.  Her next dream for Mama Africa is to buy a building, where the children have enough room to live under one roof and they can build a small school.

Winnie has made her dreams come true through education, passion, and hard work.  I’m proud to be a part of a GlobalGiving network that includes donors like you who are helping to make others’ dreams come true too.
