Education & Support for 500 Children in Uganda
Dear Project of the Month Club,
Fall is almost here — though I’d forgive you for not believing it if you’ve been enduring a heat wave like the one we’ve had here in Washington, D.C. this past week. But kids are back in school, the days are getting shorter, and it’s once again time for me to share the incredible impact you all are having.
In August, the 183 members of this club raised $6,199 for “Education & Support for 500 Children in Uganda”, a project run by Tributaries International. Your donation covered the cost of tuition, meals and supplies of 80 students returning to class at Calvary Primary School, just outside the Ugandan capital of Kampala.
This month, your donation is supporting “Educate a Mexico Girl-Child From The Barrios”, run by Christel House, which seeks to break the cycle of poverty for the girls they serve in Mexico City.
“It’s our goal to give our students the opportunity to reach their potential, regardless of their background. We provide impoverished children with education, nutrition, healthcare, transportation, clothing, social services and the resources they need to succeed,” writes Aubrey Merki of Christel House. “We appreciate your support and belief in our girls!”
Aubrey also shared that your support this month could provide complete medical support to 40 girls for a full year at Christel House.
Thank you for being part of this community and generously supporting life-changing projects like Christel House every month. See you in October!
