Dear Social Promise Donor,

Thank you for your generous donations to Social Promise's project to provide education for these five girls in northern Uganda.  By combining your donations with donations from other programs we have been running we were able to successfully provide scholarships for these girls!  We are now able to close this project!

In particular,

Everlyn, whose parents both died of AIDS, is attending St. Mary's College Aboke, and

Caroline, whose parents both died of AIDS, is attending Bishop Cipriano Kihangire Secondary School, and

Gloria, whose parents both died of AIDS, is attending St. Mary's College Aboke, and

Brenda, whose father died of AIDS and mother is being treated for HIV, is attending St. Mary's College Aboke, and

Irene, whose parents were killed by the LRA rebels, is attending St. Mary's College Aboke,

are all in school because of your help.


We know that you want your donation going to people who are extremely poor who will have new hope for the future because your donation.  We want this too.  In fact, Social Promise is an all-volunteer organization so we can keep overhead as low as possible.  Every member of our Board of Directors contributes to Social Promise just like you do.  And we make sure that our donations go to changing the future by partnering with outstanding nonprofits in Uganda.  You have honestly made a difference in the lives of these five girls through this scholarship program.

Thank you.




Your donations are making a difference!!  We have raised enough funds to pay for one girl to go to one semester of secondary school.  It might not seem impressive to you but think of the difference it will make to her.  She may have come from a small village where most people never attended upper primary school never mind the final years of secondary school that she is attending.  Instead of becoming a subsistence farmer - who is living week to week with no extra money to care for family or emergencies - she will be prepared for a career.  For a paying job that requires expertise and training.

So your donation will have a broad-reaching effect.  By providing education, you are changing the future for many people.  Not only for one girl, but for her family and her future children.  And you may inspire the people around her to change their lives too.

At Social Promise, our campaign to send these girls to school is broad-reaching.  Global Giving is a significant part of it but rest assured that we are working every angle to make sure as many children as possible have access to education.

Thank you for making a difference.

Keep inspiring!
