Hi! It has been a while since I last wrote to you.
James is doing fine,its a long holiday as schools haven't been opened yet due to covid19 pandemic, James has decided to learn how to build houses, he wants to be a responsible man,after school when he is grown up he wants to be a builder, he seems to be finding his career, we will do our part in guiding him to discover his career.
Schools have only opened for finalists,it's most likely children will repeat classes once schools reopen next year.
When schools reopen I will let you know about it. James will be able to learn to do many more things during this long holiday

Girls were able to go through the lock down
By James Malinga - Executive director
Thanks for your continued support,although this project was un able to carry out group trainings due to the Covid19 restrictions, the trained girls and women have been able to make as many pads as possible during the lock down. Even when the lock down was imposed,girls continued going through menstruation, it was hard for those who were not trained yet as they could not afford.
The trained girls and women have been able to continue using their had sewn pads as well as sell some to earn a living.
Thank you for your life changing donations and I will always ask you to keep donating to this project and other projects that we host on GlobalGiving

Children will keep studying even during the lock d
By James Malinga - Project leader
Thanks for your support towards Mountains of Hope programmes, you supported children under our care with school uniform so they can continue going to school, however due to the out break of the corona pandemic globally, a total lock down was declared in Uganda and schools were closed down before the end of the first term, children are at home and the government of Uganda is making arrangements to have children learn at home using radios and television, but most families do not have acess to such gadgets as rural areas do not have access to electricity.
The total number of Covid 19 cases in Uganda as of today stands at 774, 486 recoveries and no deaths, every other day, the numbers keep increasing especially from the truck drivers that carry cargo across boarders, the truck drivers infect Ugandan contacts hence increased community infections, the government of Uganda is most likely not to open schools soon.
There are local educational institutions which offer printed study material at a cost so that chidren can keep studying even while at home, this project is cosidering taking that direction to enable children access print material so that they are not left behind especially those that donot have radios, smart phones or television sets in their homes.
This project has planned $30 per child to access self study materials to enable them continue schooling even when at home, at the moment this project is enabling 10 vulnerable children access quality education that they deserve. We will be happy if you considered giving a child an education even amidst the corona pandemic, $30 per child; follow the link below to support this program https://www.globalgiving.org/projects/mohsponsor/
