Report on wheelchairs and education in Uganda

You made the September Open Challenge a wonderful success for Social Promise and our partner nonprofit in Uganda, St. Jude Children’s Home. To date, we have received $5,236 in donations from 70 donors. We met our goal of becoming a part of the Global Giving community, and in doing so, we earned $4,000 in matching dollars directly from our own anonymous donor. THANK YOU!

Because of your incredible generosity, Social Promise will be providing wheelchairs to seven people with severely limiting mobility disabilities. We obtained donations for four of these wheelchairs directly through this Global Giving campaign and another three during an event we hosted in New York in October. We are actively working with St. Mary’s Hospital-Lacor, Whirlwind Wheelchairs, and Consolation Home at St. Jude Children’s Home to get the wheelchairs delivered. Thank you for making this happen! Please take a look at a couple of the chair recipients and learn their stories below.

We have also guaranteed St. Jude Children’s Home funding for five orphans for an entire year and one child with special needs for half a year, with donations from the September Challenge. We are providing 12 girls with supplies for secondary school and with additional un-specified donations through this drive, we are able to give St. Jude Children’s Home the ability to support other orphans in their personal, health, and educational needs. The September Open Challenge was a wonderful experience for all of us at Social Promise as we learned what we need to do to keep our supporters informed and empowered to help with the excellent programs in place at St. Jude Children’s Home.

Thank you for all you do to help these children in Uganda have bright, safe futures. Please continue to visit us at , on Facebook at , and through Global Giving.
