More About our children:
Out of 558 orphaned and vulnerable children (OVC), 300 children sat for both PLE and O’level (senior four final exams),
262 sat for Primary Leaving Exams (PLE)
38 out of 89 in secondary sat for O’Level Exams
Other 258 are in lower classes but also did their promotional Exam.

There is tremendous demand from other children in the community in need of support.
It just overwhelming and heart breaking when I see children come to me crying for help.
From within January and February 2013 in Tororo alone we registered more children totalling
to 1,000 children with hope for funding.

If we received additional funding we shall extend the support to these needy children
of whom majority are girls.
