Thank you so much for your continued support towards James, your monthly donations enabled James to continue school till he completed his grade seven, however, during the covid19 pandemic lock down imposed on Uganda to help curb the infection, James started attending an apprenticeship training on construction with his relative where he learnt so much of construction and was making money out of construction, he prefered to continue with his new learnt skill hence departing from formal studies,if James considers to come back for formal education in the near future, we will let you know, our project has identified another needy child eligible for support, for now this project will change name to Support Marion complete school, Marion is in senior secondary school, she had stopped school when her father fell ill, her parents are HIV positive and her dad is ill, this project will enable her to resume school and complete, in Uganda and especially during the Covid19 pandemic, many girls have gotten pregnant and wont be able to continue school, the very few that havent been involved in realtionships like Marion need to be supported to complete school, Marion in HIV negative.
Will you support Marion to complete school?

James learning construction skills
By James Malinga - Project leader
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.
Our project through donations from generous people like you will continue educating young people the importance of education and as well suport them report to school again, Mountains of Hope staff have embarked on this programme to chnge the mindset of these young people so as to prepare them to study again.
