Your Support Helps 6th Grade Girls Board at School

By Carol Davis | President

Happy 6th Grade Girls Boarding at Agwata School
Happy 6th Grade Girls Boarding at Agwata School

The 2nd term of Uganda's school year began on May 27th.  The Agwata School's 6th grade class has 13 girls in its class of 24 students. These girls are very appreciative of being able to board at school during this term.  Your continued support makes it possible for all girls to board at school regardless of whether they have a permanent sponsor or not.

Your support helps pay for food and supply costs to support the unsponsored girls at school during the school term.  There was a severe drought in this area of northern Uganda duirng the last half of 2018. This meant very little harvest at year end. Parents are struggling now to provide food for their families until the 2019 harvest later this year.  This makes it especially important and valuable for the 6th grade girls to stay at school where they receive three meals per day.

Boarding at school is not a luxury. The students follow a rigorous schedule of studying while they board at school. This provides them ample time for extra lessons from the teachers as well as time to revise their notes and study with fellow students. The girls hope that their extra study time will pay off when they take their very important year end exams at the end of November.

Thanks so much for your generous contributions which help make this possible!
