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 GlobalGiving. Your support is now reaching over 250 children. Amazing!

Impact of Funds from you through GlobalGiving

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. On several occasions, I have seen people bring firewood to school, I have seem those that have brought food and the most precious type of food Uganda-Matooke! This is because at school mainly children eat a type of food called posho made from maize corn but, because they eat this type most of the time , there are kind parents who have said ‘After all a few bunches of Matooke can serve the whole school a meal, I will go to my plantation and give the school kids a great taste today!’A good example in Mr. Mugabi Mansuuli who is the immediate neighbor at the entrance of the school. He has also given sugar canes, mangoes and avocado to the school children many times. There are also others who are as kind as Manisuuli. The donors of GlobalGiving are the Manisuulis’ staying out of Uganda.

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

We love and cherish all of you our great donors. You are transforming our community slowly but surely. At one time, you will realize the fruits of your great love when these children grow up. Thank you again for your donations through Global Giving.

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 a thousand times!

Friendly  dance for you. You make us happy!
