Winnie
Winnie

My name is Winnie and I am 11 years old.  I live with my mom and dad and 6 brothers and sisters.  I enjoy going to school because the teachers teach well and have good manners.  My favorite subject is science and I also enjoy learning about sanitation.  I like to read books with my friends.  I don’t like coming home and washing dishes and other chores.  I would like to become a teacher someday to teach others and provide them with knowledge like my teachers have done for me.

I hope one day to live in Northern Uganda where my grandmother and great grandmother live.  When I go to visit, I love to work in the garden with my grandmother.

For just $20 a month, you can give Winnie the gift of an education.

Innocent

Meet Innocent:  I am 14 years old and live with my mother and sister.  I love school because it is the place where we go to learn.  My favorite class is science because we learn about sanitation.  I believe the environment must be clean.  When I come home from school, I can often be found cleaning the compound with my best friend, Jared.

I struggle with math, but I look to my friends to help me when I don’t understand something.  My teachers are also patient and will help when I need extra help.  I live in Kampala now, but when I finish my studies, I hope to return to my village in the North, Kitgum.  There is plentiful work in Kitgum and my grandmother lives there.  I enjoy spending time with her and growing crops together.  If we have a garden, we will always have food.

You can help.  A $25 donation provides a monthly scholarship for a child like Innocent.  Consider giving the gift, the opportunity, of education to a child who would not otherwise have it.

Winnie
Winnie

 “Let education not make you rich, but rather, useful,” is the mantra of Winnie’s headmaster at Bishop Cypriano’s academically competitive secondary school.

Winnie is 16 and was born and raised in the Acholi Quarter, a slum on the outskirts of Kampala. Despite many struggles and challenges, Winnie remains undaunted in her quest to receive a solid education. “I love learning a lot,” exclaims Winnie, who loves to read and can often be found in the school library looking for books in French to read.

She hopes to pursue a career doing charity work. She knows very well the struggles of poverty and is committed to doing her part to contribute to creating a better world. “I want to do my part to help,” Winnie flatly states. “Believe you can, and you’re halfway there!”

Dorcas

Dorcas is 16 years old, despite her youthful, shy smile. Her father died of HIV when she was very young.  In February, she tragically and unexpectedly lost her mother during childbirth.  "I have always helped my family take care of my younger siblings, but it is now even more important that I contribute." Children in Uganda too often have to grow up fast and take on responsibilities that far surpass their tender years.  Full of pride, Dorcas speaks of her mother, "My mother was a 'business lady.' Every Friday she sold her paper bead jewelry at the market. In school, I enjoy studying commerce. I hope to be a 'business lady' like my mom was."
