Group members with their materials ready to start
Group members with their materials ready to start

Thank you for donating towards our youth piggery project recently, as a result, we have already held a two days’ workshop to continue teaching them about piggery management, the nearby school which will be one of the beneficiaries indirectly also sent representatives, the school has provided a wheel barrow to facilitate the piggery project, the youth have purchased a spray pump for spraying the pigs to avoid diseases, a plastic water tank for water storage. High breed piglets will be purchased as they grow fast hence good results realized fast.

The focus of the workshop discussed selection of stock, pig disease and control, and use of pig-waste. They participated in a visit to a farm that currently raises pigs, so the youth could witness firsthand how the farm is properly managed. With the assistance of pig waste, youth also will be able to grow the vegetable. Other vegetables and a banana plantation will also been established with hopes of selling the products at a local market. Of the fifteen piglets we will be purchasing as parent stock, they will be kept in a joint farm.

Globalgiving will disburse funds on 25th of this month, we will send you update pictures of the piglets when we purchase them

Our children are writing a great letter to you

Complete wall
Complete wall

I know you would love to hear the news:

We’ve had progress in the construction project you are funding in Mpigi, Uganda, your generous donation has enabled us to complete the orphanage wall including tying on the concrete ring beam to help hold the walls strong, this week the veranda columns will also be fixed and surely we will be done with the walls!

“Am glad we will be shifting to our new property soon, I will be sleeping in the first room, it’s cool, it’s nice” Patrick

“I can’t wait to see the projects that are going to be done on the property, especially the chicken and water projects that will benefit both the children and my community” Local council 1 chairman Kitaanula village where the orphanage is located

“Our donors are doing a great job, three of them have given to the project more than two times which is great and two of them have volunteered to be our ambassadors in the USA, one ambassador mobilized her friends and family to donate on the Globalgiving bonus day that took place on February 12th” James-Project leader giving progress report to the staff during the executive meeting

Now that we are done with the walls, we are beginning on the roof, good news! We have funds enough for the roof timber, roofing nails and labour but we don’t have iron sheets, this is a rainy season, our engineers have advised to fix iron sheets as soon as possible to avoid weakening and collapse of the walls due to heavy downpour. It takes seconds for the building that has taken one year under construction to collapse but only six generous people will save it from collapsing, if we could only get six donors to commit $200 this month, the roof will be fixed immediately and we will save all the dollars we have injected in this project.

Our children are drawing great pictures and designing a letter with your name in it, if you will give $200 to this project this month you will receive that wonderful letter with colored pictures as a gift of appreciation!

Donors that will give from March 20th  to April 6th   will receive the children’s gift of appreciation, Isn’t it great?

We are almost there

We make sure children are safe
We make sure children are safe

Dear partners,

So, Yes! I know God is blessing us.

I confess that there have been times when I wasn’t 100% sure that we would raise $480 this January.

And yet, in His mercy, has still shown wonderful grace to us.

You see, I set a goal for us to donate $500 in December.

And there have been times when I wasn’t sure it would happen.

But when I see how much we have given since the beginning of last year to  date, $4652, which helped us build up to beam level, I am now confident that we will finish what we started.

There’s still time! We are almost there!

All of us have already given, some of us are recurring donors, and for those who haven’t signed in as recurring
donors can also sign in to give monthly, thank you in advance!  There are only 14 days left to the end of this
month (January). All we have to raise is $1825 to finish the roof!

And you have proven your generosity before. I know you will be generous again.

When you give, you make sure that the HIV/AIDS infected and affected orphan kids in Uganda have the same benefits other kids have all over the World.

I’m counting on you to do your part.
