Greetings Dear Partners,

First,let me say Merry Christmas to you all our dear partners, and I pray you pass through all the Christmas season safe when you are alive in Jesus name,  at Kassanda Children’s Aid we are having a very busy time s we are organizing the Children’s Party remember every year the birthday of the founder is celebrated with children on 25, hear we invite some few selected children on addition to the children who stay with the Founder (Pastor Ssenyonga Vincent) and they enjoy together, sorry that the notice for this report it was a very short time and yet we were so busy organizing this important day for the children, special thanks goes to our Fundraising Administrator Lisa Dengel who did a very important role so this party can be organized,  and not only that she went ahead to contribute with funds, Mrs. Patricia Woosley , Mis  Virginia Louderback-Godel , Mrs Susan Louderback  Seaboalt , Mrs  Esther, Chamberlin, though we are still stuck to receive the money she sent by world remit wallet,  Georgina Taylor and Mr Dean Siminoff  I say thanks very much, on this contribution some few children we managed to get them clothes,  the rest to buy food and a goat. 

Among all seasons this has been a very hard season at the children’s Center because twenty children got sick and were treated and they got healed Glory be to God, special thanks goes to Mrs, Stacy, and the Charity Director they stood with Kassanda Children’s Aid in this season by helping to pay the medical bills and to cater to buy food as it’s a holiday period many children are now at the Children’s Home, right now we are having three children who are seriously sick.

On the building of the children’s home in this season Kassanda Children’s Aid got a disbursement totaling to $271  in Uganda shilling it was 970,000/=  from Global Giving with all our heart we thank our monthly donor who gives every month and we are in high demand for such donors,  

The Great news on the building of the Children’s Home KCA founder and KCA fundraising Administrator reached to an agreement to add all funds which were collected from global giving to buy three acres of land with five roomed house near the land of Stephen Baker Farm this was supported by one of our donor Mrs. Patricia and she contributed 1000$ this whole land and house costs 22,0000,000/= due to the importance of this land and house,  KCA Founder managed to secure a loan of 8,000,000/= to add on the money they had to make a total payment of 22,000,000/= we believe this land will be productive towards KCA work and it will help to sustain KCA  by doing projects on it. So we decided to stay having this fundraising open so that we can get funds to finish up the loan we got and the funds to make finishing on the house and we shift in that house with kids.

Your Fall 2019 Update

Birthday Party
Birthday Party

Dear Partner,

     We had visitors from Canada who came to tour and fundraise,  so we had opportunity to celebrate Stacy's 50th Birthday  along with her Get-schooled Children. All this went so well and we had a chance to host the governor of Kassanda District and KCA got the chance to present the detailed report on what we have achieved. We also got to tell of our plans for the next years to come. Due to the occasion it was also covered by the National Television and Monitor Newspaper Article

     The building of the children's home is still slow due to funding, we got a donation from Progressive Insurance Foundation totalling Uganda money 4,500,000/= when you add the last amount we had it totalled to 5,500,000/=. Right now this money can buy iron sheets and the start cement on the house. I do thank KCA partners who tirelessly bring change to our community by building this house.  Compared on the collected amount,  we are still in need for more funds to start this house and we still believe that we can build it together with your support 

    We are happy to report KCA along with the donation of Mrs Stacy and John, adopted a needy family and we constructed a new home for them to live in.  Thanks also to David  from Charity Director who organized our sponsor girls to get a chance to have 3 months suppy of sanitary pads as they were going back for their last quarter of school. If you would like to fundraise for any of these above efforts, volunteer in any capacity or visit us, please reach out. Together we make a difference!

Dear Friend,

     Excitement is in the air as KCA hosts two Canadians and one American with the goal of riding bikes all over Uganda. They will cover 2000 km or 1250 miles to raise funds and awareness with Get-Schooled for the children of Kassanda Children’s Aid! In total they raised enough for this year 54 kids, 14 in secondary school, 39 in primary section and 1 in vocational institute. Before leaving we visited the nearby schools to see the some of the children at the primary schools called Walton, William Mukasa, Lwakisa, Ssempera Memorial and lastly Pride Secondary School.

      The official riding started on 06/06/2019, Joshua, the American could spend only two weeks and then had to go back. Stacy who came to celebrate her 50th birthday with the Get-schooled children and John her husband are from Canada. They will finish their tour on July 22 but before they board back on the 23rd we hope to have a farewell party with our visitors, caretakers, and the Get-schooled Children. We are planning to have different guests from the District Headquarters of Kassanda, Stake Holders and Partners.

     The building of the children's home has been slow because we have collected only $400 out of the $15000 needed. We managed to put some materials to start with 7000 bricks, 4 trips of hard core stones and two concrete stones. We are still believing that we can build this house together with your support so children can be helped.

      Kassanda Children’s Aid with the help Mrs Patricia Woosley also built another house on the Stephen Baker Land which was given to one vulnerable lady who had four kids as their sleeping conditions were in very poor conditions. We appreciate all of our donors and volunteers who help us, here we say WEBALE NYO, which means thank you so much!
