The Final stride 2012

Greetings from Ngoma Aid Foundation. 

I would like to thank all our friends, wellwishers, supporters and donors for the support and generosity they have shown to us over the year. Thank you for making our 2012 a good one. We continue to request that you maintain the support. We are very thankful and appreciate the effort you extend to us to keep us going. Thank you so much.

I am happy to report that we managed to raise the original amount for this project and have since extended the project so as to start our fundraising for the children for the next academic term. It is never easy, it might take longer than expected but with your support and generosity, we are always comforted that we will get there and that is what is happening.

I am also happy to inform you all that , starting with this last school term of the year, we will be extending our help to 4 more children. Two young girls will be at the house with the rest of the girls while the other two who lost a father in August will be staying with their mother while we extend support inform of school fees, uniform, books, pencils, pens etc. We are always glad we can help were possible. 

Kasaija and Haanifa will be seating for their senior four leaving exams in October and November. We are glad they have come this far. If we had never supported Hanifa for example, given the circumstances under which she was discovered, she would most likely be a rural mother of four by now, without an education and no future. We are glad that with your support, she is almost there. I hope she gets good grades and goes to college and if anything were to happen now, am sure she has the ability to make the right choices in life as a result of the acquired education. They began their school term much earlier as demanded by the school.

Natasha, Nina, Rukundo, Krishna, gladys, Jane and Elizabeth are supposed to begin their third and final term of the school year today 3/9/2012. I will be traveling to Ngoma today to facilitate their back to school programme. It should have been done earlier but i was away and had not approved the school fees release. All will be settled within the week, including their shopping and all the other items they will need for school. This is only possible because of your support. Thank you always.

I did promise sometime back to investigate the reason behind Jane's missed exam remarks on the first term report and Elizabeth's poor performance. One of our staff made a follow up with the school biut i was not satisfied with the explanation i got. I promise to go to their school on 6/9/2012 and will be glad to share the findings and way forward. 

I am afraid i can not attach last term's reports on this project report. The reports  are in Ngoma Sub County and am in Kampala. Like i said i have been out of office for training and haven't looked at the original copies. I should be able to post them on here sometime this week and also post new pictures of everyone.

We at Ngoma Aid Foundation remain committed to helping the disadvantaged and marginalised especially children, women and the elderly. We can only achieve our objectives with your support. We strongly appreciate your help. Keep supporting us.

Have a great month
