I hope you are doing quite fine, James is doing fine too, he is on apprenticeship skills training learning construction skills, when schools resume soon, he will be able to go back to school, however, he is inspired to take on construction or engineering or architect in future.
There are many children in Uganda who havent yet made choices of what they want to become, James is lucky to have gotten an opportunity to identify his gift at such an age. Your continued support towards James and other Mountains of Hope programs have enabled us to achieve much in this difficult period of time, James is able to get for himself basic needs ith your support, when schools resume, James will require a new school uniform, shoes and other scholastic materials, schools are most likely to resume 1st March 2021 for all children in Uganda, schools have been closed for the last 12 months, many children have lost interest in Education especially girls and have gotten married or pregnant, for the case of boys, they have decided to find them selves petty jobs and are most likely not going to study anymore.

I hope all is well with you, thank you once again for your contiued support towards our programme, despite the fact tht children have not been able to attend classes for the last 12 months due to covid19 pandemic, your support has been enabling them to get study materials to keep them learning while at home, however, this progmme has also enabled us to reach out to the families and have talks with the especially girls so that they dont get married off during this period. The schools are set to be re opened 1st March 2021 after a one year long forced holiday due to the pandemic, this programme funding will enable more than 50 children to continue school especially at such a time where guardians have not been able to regain their small jobs that used to be a source of income.
Your continued support will keep enabling these children continue school, your funds will enable us buy new school uniform, shoes, books and pay some funds at school for meals and tuition, the need is much, we appreciate your help in this.

The secret behind empowering young people;Sanitary Pad project integrates in the face mask making
By James Malinga - Project leader
Thank you so much for your generosity towards empowerment of communities on menstruation management in rural households, as a result of these trainings one youth group has started improving the pad from the simple one we taught them to a modern one that suits even the middle class community. The group has also integrated in the face mask making in their program as it is one of the community needs and as a means of fighting covid19,their mask is affordable and available in the community at all times.
When you support people in needy communities learn how to come out of poverty, you help them to succeed, thanks for always being so kind to them.
These young people in the coming year will also introduce in purified ice drinks,yoghurt and juices, Mountains of Hope will ensure the group receives all the necessary support they need in the certification of their products with the quality control department in Uganda.
However, this project is still raising funds to enable us continue empowering more young people, we will be glad to continue receiving your monthly donations to help in this.
