Dear Friends and Sponsors,

I am writing today to thank each of you for your generous support and to announce that we have successfully concluded our project, Vocational Training for Displaced Ugandan Children (#3729).  This was our first project on GlobalGiving and we are extremely Grateful for your Compassion and support in fully funding this project.

Both facets of this project, the Model Farm and Livestock Management have grown and developed to the point that they are self-sustainable.  The cassava production on the model farm has become a showcase for the region and has received recognition from national Ugandan leaders.  Many families in the region have been gifted with high-yield cuttings to augment their food security.  The goat and cow herds have grown to the point where, in addition to supplying all the dairy requirements of the 600+ children at Future Victory School, there is surplus livestock to sell or barter for other needs.  But the most important part of the programs is the personal development of the children involved.  They have not only learned real-world skills to augment their formal education which will stand them in good stead in the future, but through an active outreach to aid families in the region, these children have instilled an understanding of selfless service.  As many of the children at Future Victory School are orphaned, we believe this is the best way to integrate a sense of community and reweave them back into the fabric of society.

Thank you!

Please visit our other project in Uganda which aims to create vocational training modules for girls teaching seamstress skills, helps keep young women in schools through the creation of reusable sanitary pads and, most importantly, teaches selfless service through the sharing of pads the girls create with other girls to help them stay in school.  You can find it at: Keep 1000 Ugandan Girls in School (#8789), http://www.globalgiving.org/projects/pads-for-schoolgirls.  We hope you will join us there.

With Gratitude,
