Project Report | Aug 17, 2023

By Eddy Morris ogweng | Project Project leader

Dear Esteemed Supporters and donors,

It is with very profound gratitude that I write to you this brief.

The last three months has been a mixture of strides and drawbacks.

At our ECDC center we had a unique quarter with the enrollment of over 240 children at the center. A number of these children come with such excitement and Joy that our staff and volunteers simply see a dream come true in the persuit of not only their professional career but also the learning center. Our centers are premised on the desire rooted on the motto' Esteeming the Next Generation" and seeing children flock the center in excitement speaks to the reality that we are building an esteemed next generation who are able to take charge of the affairs of their time. It is important to realize that our children will become leaders of a more demanding and complex generation and decade of great digital stride. Today as I piece this brief, Uganda is launching a roadmap for the digital space and we can only hope for our rural communities and children to have access to equal digital opportunities but as it stands out it can only be a brutal reality that it might take decades for children in the communities we serve to fully benefit from the digital transformation agenda.

When someone sits in Washington or Nairobi or Kampala, it is possible to make assumptions that all communities are already enjoying the benefits of digital transfer but the truth of the matter is that poverty, climate change, hunger remain one brutal obstacle to achieving Access to education for the rural poor children and to sit and assume that everything is well is likened to burring our heads in the sun. Our centers attract children whose parents can not offer them two meals a day for 365 days of the year and this has a direct bearing on school attendance which directly affects learning. If we have a child attending school twice a week instead of five days a week we can not be proud that we are making impact but we have not lost hope. As stated earlier in this brief, the center opened this quarter with 240 but as the quarter is closing we are seeing 140 completing the quarter and out of the 140 , just about 100 have been a bit consistent.

As an organization, giving up on our mandate is not part of our DNA and as a result we are constantly investing in fully understanding the cause of the disparities and how to address these challenges and disparities. Our center has continued to provide meals for the children with some modest contribution from the parents and we have continued to encourage parents to supplement our efforts to ensure children have uniforms but this is still difficult as we still have several children we are unable to offer uniforms.

Ours supporters and the GlobalGiving community, I wish to request and implore you to come to our rescue by giving us more support and resources that will enable us continue Esteeming the next generation of leaders that we have at our centers. I understand your contribution has been enormous and we can not be more grateful for all your generous giving but as I stated,we have gotten to a point where communities have built strong confidence and belief in us and entrusted the future of their children in our hands,we can only hope that you remain steadfast in trusting us with your finances that will guarantee a safe and secure future for the next generation of children we are raising to take charge of the world in a more challenging decade of digital transformation.

Appreciations are in order for all your prayers and support for us and we look forward to hearing feedback on what you think can help us move forward in our persuit of Esteeming the next generation.

Recieve our sincere gratitude and Best wishes!
