It was a great joy when Sharon received good news that she will be joining form one soon. She had stayed home for two months since form one admission ended. Her mother was not able to pay for her school fees, since the only thing she would afford was shelter and food. Sharon had scored 257 marks out of 500. As Juhudi children we came to rescue the girl after visiting the school she was admitted but she went back home until she pays fees then she will be allowed in the class. The principal told us about the girl performance and how she has stayed home for long time because of lack of school fees. We agreed with the principal to support the girl until she completes her high school education. We us Juhudi we were very happy for her and we look forward to continue supporting her education up to the higher level. She is now catching up with others and she doing very well according to her mid-term exams. She is a bright student and ready to learn. She dreams to change the lives of her family and herself by working hard in school. As an organization we will be hand in hand by ensuring the girl has pursued her education well. We therefore urge our able donors and well wishers to continue supporting us so that we reach more girls who are bright but they stay home due to lack of school fees. They are at risks of becoming teenage mothers. Education is the only thing that will change their lives and become the change makers of the community.

It is with great trust and hopes that we have managed to support girls who were at risk, to get access to education this year. As we are remaining with a few days to end the year, we won’t be ashamed and delayed to mention the powerful and great achievements that we have made. Nekesa is one of our girls that we shared her story and support. We are proud that Nekesa managed to sit for her final exam. Destiny and Chebo are among the many girls that are still looking for our support in the course of next year.

As we are sharing the positive impact that was spearhead by our organization’s passionate volunteers with many great donors and well-wishers we hope that we will make 2019 a smiling year for many needy girls in the region. We are humbled by the devote donors who always support our work. As we are coming to the end of this year, we always count on you and your kind support. We look forward to changing a life and be part of the journey that we do and always walk.

CHEBO GET SUPPORTED TO PURSUE HER EDUCATION

After getting your donations from you, we wish to share a success story for this girl who was at risk of dropping out of school because of school fees. Her mother died 3 years ago and was left with her father and 3 siblings. Being a polygamous family, her father abandoned them and moved to the first wife leaving them alone. They just depend on neighbors or well-wishers so that they can eat. She is the last born while the two brothers, one is in form 3 and the elder one is in the college. The girl is in form 2 in a day school. The life for them has not been easy after her mother’s death. As Juhudi we came in to help her by paying her school so that she can pursue her education.

 As an organization will make sure the girl gets what she requires in her education throughout her journey. We have seen her future is bright because she is a straight forward and focused girl. She is read to learn and acquire knowledge to help the society in future. It is our mandate to ensure such girls are supported fully. You find that those girls, who are neglected by their parents or guardians end up dropping out of school, get married early and also, become house girls.

We hope that through your support towards this project will enable us to reach more girls and support them fully. We really appreciate for your kind donations always. May almighty bless you abundantly.

A SUCCESS STORY FROM DESTINY

After getting your donations from you, we wish to share a success story for this girl who had dropped out of school and through your previous support she managed to go back to school. The girl is in form one doing very well in her studies. She is topping her class. Currently we visited her school to see how she is faring on. We witnessed her good performance and it was commendable. The girl has changed so much and she promised us to do much better to get quality grades to join university. She aspires to become a lawyer and help people in court to get justice.

As an organization will make sure the girl gets what she requires in her education throughout her journey. We have seen her future is bright because she is a straight forward and focused girl. She is read to learn and acquire knowledge to help the society in future. It is our mandate to ensure such girls are supported fully. You find that those girls, who are neglected by their parents or guardians end up dropping out of school, get married early and also, become house girls.

The girl has motivated the organization to reach more girls and support them. It will help us rescue more girls who are at risk of dropping of out because of the circumstances at home. Some families are very poor and they cannot be able to afford to pay fees for their children especially girls who are not considered to acquire education. We hope that through your kind support we will be able reach more girls who are vulnerable and at risk of dropping out of school soon.

It has been 3 years ago when she started her journey in secondary school. This journey had a lot of challenges on the way. The big challenge being school fees. She used to be send home to collect school fees which was not there since her single mother had nothing to give out. Her budget was only to cater for food for the family. That is where Juhudi children came in to assist the family by paying the fees since form one to date. She is now in form four expecting to sit for her national examinations this year. We have made sure her fees is paid in time so that she remains in school.

At beginning in form one the girl had lost hope for continuing with her education but her hope was restored by Juhudi again. We happen to visit the girl in school and have a discussion with her and teachers. She expressed her gratitude to us and we felt that it is also good to share with you well wishers for playing an important in this, by supporting our projects generously. This what she said “I can’t believe am in my final year completing form four. I want to thank all people who were behind my success especially Juhudi children for the kind support to me. May almighty God bless you abundantly to be able to reach more needy children like me.’’

As the organization we join hands together and also appreciate all our well wishers for making our project a success. We promise to reach more girls in the region to restore their hope in life. Thank you so much.
