CHEDRA and Bugabira School supporters, you are so dear to us!

We at CHEDRA would like to thank you for having such kind hearts and for donating to the community though global giving. Your support is now reaching over 250 children. Amazing!

Impact of Funds from you through Global Giving

The impact that your support has is both short and long term. On top of supporting the school to help more pupils, This kind act of donating is building a spirit of determination and love for one another in community. This is what happens here: Whenever we get a donation from you, we tell the children, parents and the community that we received support from kind people that we do not even know by face. What surprises people is the way that people from far away and majority of whom have not been to this community before but commit them to help others. In fact, on top of making a recurring donation, even donating the first time is great! We want to thank you for using you hard earned money to support others in Uganda.

The resultant fact is that some community members have also turned to use their time and energy to help. It is because they have seen you donating even when you are not here. At the beginning of the year CHEDRA conducted a community meeting in which we introduced plan for the new Year 2014. One of our major concerns was that we did not have enough dormitories for the children. At the end of the meeting, several people in the community especially youth committed themselves to come to school and make bricks which can be used in construction. Of course we had to pay them but at a subsidized price. One of the hey people involved is Mr. Kayondo, he says he has been helped by many people and therefore is more than wiling to support others. The funds we received have been used to pay for some of the items needed to make bricks like water, grass and firewood. We have plans to finish up the building soon.

The children are happy, today they are sleeping so squeezed but there is hope that in the near future, the school through your support will be in position to have enough facilities for them. This has been possible because of your support.

Our commitment has been and will be that; Bugabira School shall never turn away pupils from class and will use the availed funds to provide short-term relief to needy children and prepare them for a better future.

Thank you again for your donations through Global Giving. We are looking forward to helping more and more children with their guardians. How best do you think we can attract more funding? Do you know any agency that funds children or education so that we can apply?

If you have any ideas, suggestions or questions about how best to help people in Masaka, or  about the use of the funds, please contact the Program Coordinator Kigozi Moses at: Tel: +256 776 512 227.

Thank you many times!
