So far, 19 donations for EUR 1 101 euros have been received (through GlobalGiving) under "Building kindergarten for 100 kids in Uganda" project, so EUR 26,138 remains to the final goal. We are currently working on some other projects, but soon we will be more active for both - this subproject and it`s main project, which is to build a school in Uganda, so we can educate hundreds and thousands of children in the future.
I hope that my personal involvement as Founder of Smile for Africa Foundation and my visit to Uganda, where I`m going soon to directly manage the project activities, will help a lot for that.

From me and from the whole team of Smile for Africa Foundation - Thank you very much for your kind support.

Although the delivery and installation of the rainwater harvesting system has not been easy, we can congratulate each other on our success and announce that the project has been completed.
We would like to say: “Big THANK YOU ”, from Smile for Africa Foundation`s team, the Greenfield Kids Foundation`s team and especially from the children who no longer have to carry water from the forest.
Mr. Robert Akampurira – Director of Greenfield Kids Foundation says:
“The water system you donated to us is helping us in many ways, no more going down the hill to get water from the river which you visited. Now the kids who are staying at school can wash hands before eating, wash clothes, and also get enough water for bathing, also no more lack of water for the cooks, the tanks we have, before water is finished between that time we have to receive rain which can fill them all again, good enough we have enough roofing which can help us get enough water to fill all the tanks.”

We would like to thank all of you for the support that you have provided to our foundation.Every small donation add up to a big change.
With the donations made to the project "Water-donate this gift to kids in Uganda" we will support the installation of big rooftop water storage tanks, which will constantly resolve the problem with the lack of water for the kids living in Greenfield Nursery and primary school in Uganda.
Together we have raised EUR 4,821 (approximately USD 5,330) from 80 different donors- BIG HURRAY.
The collected funds has been transfered to our account on 29th of September 2019. After we received an updated quota for the materials and installation we sent the ammount to Greenfield Kids Foundation, Uganda.
The construction works will start in a few days and we expect the job to be done in 3-4 weeks.
Few words from Robert Akampurira, Founder and Director of Greenfield:
First of all I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for great work doing for the children of Uganda; for sure you are really making a difference. Thank you that you made fundraising at GlobalGiving to solve water problem at our school.
I also want to say: “Thank you very much” to all donors, who make our dreams come true. Now you are part of our family and you are welcome to visit us at any time.Here, water has been a very big problem but after installing water tanks we will start harvesting rain water and I`m sure there will be no more water problem at school. It has been very hard for kids to fetch water from the river. That water is not good for drinking and cooking that`s why we are so happy that we are going to install enough tanks to store enough water .Thank you for having a heart of helping African children. The children around whole the world are the future of tomorrow.”
