Thanks for your recent donation to Sponsor South Sudanese Refugee children project in Uganda. Our board of trustees appreciates your commitment to help these children get out of educational poverty. Education is the only weapon children need to defeat poverty to have a brighter future.

What next? This project is progressing well. Between January and August 108 children have been admitted in the program. These children returned from Britain when South Sudan got independence. Most are under a direct sponsorship, and a small number are benefiting from corporate sponsorship. These children are studying in northern Uganda because the school fees are within our budget. Also, we do have 65 children benefiting from this project in schools around Entebbe, and Kampala.

In these second 2013 term: 123 students were granted short term financial support to complete their final year of secondary education this year. They are admitted to five senior secondary schools.

Jane Amitto is pride of south Sudan: she is doing medicine at Makerere University of Ugandan main Institution of higher education. With our modest contribution she is doing well in the exams and assignments.

These children want to see this project progress so they get an education, and they need your help to put pens and books in their hands.

A new field will be posted after three months where you get to know what impact your contributed has made to empower these children educationally.
