You've Helped Vivian Be a Happy 8th Grade Girl!

By Carol Davis | President

Vivian, Excited to Go to School
Vivian, Excited to Go to School

Vivian was one of the top performing students in the Lamwo district in 2017 when she completed 6th grade.  And yet she could barely afford to go to secondary school and then only sporadically as a day student during 7th grade thanks to an auntie that could occasionally provide help.  Teachers at her secondary school quickly realized her potential and even began taking up collections among themselves to help buy her school supplies.  And yet, they knew they couldn't do this forever.

That's why we selected Vivian to be a part of our child sponsorship program.  She does not have a full time, long term sponsor yet, but thanks to this project on GlobalGiving, we have been able to pay her school fees as a boarding student at her school in Kitgum Uganda for the first two terms of the 2018 school year.

Vivian is very thankful and overjoyed that she can now attend school regularly and board at school like most of her other fellow students. In Uganda, most secondary students board at school so they have time to study, adequate food to eat, and electricity to study at night.

Thanks to you, Vivian has now risen to being the top performing girl student in her 8th grade class.  Please share this letter with family and friends who might be interested in our project of helping girls like Vivian remain in school.  Or who knows?  Maybe one of them would want to sponsor Vivian to complete her secondary schooling!

We appreciate you very much.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You have made Vivian's dream come true by giving her the gift of education.
