John,our follow up in team interacts with girls

Its 3months back since you last heard from us at UYSTO, today we are very much pleased to reach out to you with wonderful information collected from the girl child you care about here in Uganda.

Our “donate to buy sanitary pads for 50 girls in school project” follow up team, had to interact with our project beneficiaries and a lot was shared. The team first listened to the girls’ testimonies about the support and got too much touched, thought it could be more memorable and concerning the world if these wonderful messages would be put before the donors and the restof the people in the world. The team leader, our volunteer John merry posed and then asked what would it require you to have this testimony in a written form?  all the beneficiaries shout out, a pen and paper, One Immaculate said,”this would be wonderful if our donors could really see how we personal put out our appreciation to them and the way we have changed with their kind support sent to us through UYSTO”. And the team agreed to leave the girls and put up literature that we think will be in position to attract every one's attention, you will hear what these young girls are talking about your support.

After a week, we got concerned and made another visit and what we collected are really touching stories that one would not miss reading. Here at UYSTO, we encourage you to read these stories, you will really not remain the same, these are stories containing new other projects communicated from your girl child you are supporting.

When interaction with these girls, we felt touched with the happiness expressed and new ideas they shared with us in the discussion.

There time came and GlobalGiving disburses donations collected for buying sanitary pads for the poor urban school girl child to Uganda Youth skills Training Organization. The process of delivering sanitary pads was underwent, preparations were arranged together with volunteers from Lithuania and Uganda as well as youths at UYSTO training center, something that kept their mind unsteady, to find out that girls in schools cannot access sanitary pads, as this one was not enough, they also got it on their arrival at school from the teachers, that teachers too cannot afford to buy sanitary pads.

While on arrival, joyous groups of cubs surrounded us with marvelous songs, praising us for the support rendered to their sisters, this inspired us to raise up our banner written on “Uganda Youth skills Training Organization together with its individual donors through Globalgiving donates sanitary pads to poor urban school girl child”

UYSTO voluntary staff and the director, were welcomed by the deputy head teacher at Namungona Kigobe primary school and presented the visitors book for signing, thereafter we had meet the teens who were full of joy and ready to receive their packages.

The deputy head teacher welcomed us once again and presented her speech and in her words, she appreciated the package and the work done for the young girl of Uganda, and requested UYSTO and Globalgiving to continue what she called “unusual work” helping those that you have never met.

I cannot believe that what you are telling is true, that you got this support to us from individuals who do not know us, the deputy head teacher Rebecca said.

Rebecca, after her speech called UYSTO director to talk to the cubs and the UYSTO director assured the learners that its true all these are from people who do not know you but felt touched when they came to learn from UYSTO that girls drop out of school due to lack of sanitary pads as a result of parents being unable to afford sanitary pads for their children to be in school. They tiredly work hard to see that you stay in school, learn and be productive citizens of your country and the world at large. Bob the director Uganda youth Skills Training Organization, appreciated the management and staff of Namungona Kigobe primary school for the efforts put forward in upraising the girl child in Uganda. Added that “when you educate a woman, you educate the entire nation”

The handing over of the sanitary pad kits to the beneficiaries, was by the two volunteers from Lithuania and these were Donata and Fausta, who did it in the most wonderful and amusing way, full of joy and wonderful presentation.

One of the beneficiary Racheal, was requested to say a word of appreciation and in her words, she said “ it’s the prayers that we have been saying every morning on the assembly, that UYSTO and her kind hearted partners  are able to keep us in school with this kind of support ,and requested UYSTO staff to extend couples of thankful messages to Globalgiving and that most especially to those who donated without knowing the beneficiaries.Since we  now have everything required of us to be at school,we promise that, they are no more excuses. Racheal said.

Ended the function with praising songs from cubs following us to our old Regius car, entered 20 of us in number off back to UYSTO.

Thanks to all of you our most loved and wonderful donors for the love, kind and generous support you have put in place for the betterment of Ugandan girl child to attain education for future shining child and Uganda

With all your support to us, moreover without knowing whom you are supporting!! We would like to say we are the ones here enjoying your lovely and kind support. We still remember, value and praise the moment of the day, when UYSTO came into our lives, being there for us with all your support. Rachael, Maria and Sophie, feel that they were borne lucky to be beneficiaries of the program of benefiting from receiving Sanitary pads, Rachael tells our coordinator Miriam, that "l was feeling guilty of tearing my young brothers shirts" for padding, something that was not perfect also, because even if l could pad myself with those clothes, due to, too much blood, l would go back home after lunch or even before that time.
Now am very happy that you distant friends of us, the friends of the needy , as l may term it, you are here for us and we want to assure you that we will not disappoint you. You are our guardian angels.
Really Globalgiving donors, you are superb with this support you have given to girls to stay in schools. while with these girls, Maria talked of being given disposal sanitary pads like those ones given out to their neigbouring schools by rotary club and that these reusable sanitary pads have a lot of work especially when it come cleaning them.
We have got same issues from the parents saying that because of even living in single rooms, when they are washed; at times find difficulties with drying them. They requested that we do improve by providing disposal ones for hygiene purposes.
That’s why we are now requesting you to donate for buying disposal sanitary pads to 50 needy girls not to all schools as we had planed the project.
We thank you very much you kind and lovely donation to needy girls in Uganda.
God bless you all.
