HAPPY NEW YEARS

Happy New Years from the Kasiisi Project Girls Support Program!

Elizabeth Ross is in Uganda starting next week and we should have some photos as soon as she returns. We are purchasing five new Girls' Only Latrines (at $5,000 each). The privacy of single sex latrines is very important for girls to feel comfortable at school. FYI, pads are purchased at the beginning of each term for the girls.

Thank you for a wonderful 2009! We've been around on GlobalGiving since April and thanks to all of your generous donations and support we have passed $50,000 and 1,000 unique donors in less than nine months. We are endlessly grateful to Oprah's registry, many committed individual supporters and The Milton & Beatrice Wind Foundation. Your generous support incredible and is making a HUGE difference. I look forward to being able to send you all some new photos when Elizabeth returns from Uganda of the progress of the latrines!

Please feel free to contact us anytime. For those of you who have, we truly appreciate your feedback.

HAPPY NEW YEARS from Kasiisi Project Girls Support Program and the girls of Kikko, Kigarama, Kasiisi, Kyanyawara, and Rweteera Primary Schools.
