In Uganda, January marks the beginning of the school year.  With your support, we were able to enroll 92 children into school and give them the opportunity to change their lives.

Meet Gloria. She is 16 years old and hopes to become a doctor so that she can help people. Her mother, Betty, never had a chance to go to school.  Betty's father died when she was only one month old.  She had four brothers, so the priority was their schooling.  Education was not seen as important for Betty or her sisters.  Because of that, she is determined that Gloria receives an education.  Gloria is equally determined.  "I want to become somebody in life."

Meet Samuel. He is 12 years old and lives with his mother and 10 siblings. When he was about 9 years old, his mother, Paska, noticed that he was "running with the wrong crowd" and was skipping school.  She implored us to enroll him in a boarding school.   Since then, his grades have steadily improved and he studies hard.  A rising entrepreneur, during the break between terms, Samuel has a small business selling paraffin.  He uses this money to buy his school requirements.

These are just two of the many exceptional children living in exceptionally challenging circumstances who are looking forward to a brighter future through the opportunity of education.
