Send refugee and poor children to school in Uganda

Dear friends and supporters,

In the previous term (1st term 2012), the hostel witnessed several achievements.

The students also moved into two bigger residences with fully functional piped water.

For the first time, the hostels received qualified administrators to take of the students. The boys received a full time patron while the girls received a matron. The medical problems were managed by the matron also acting as the hostel nurse owing to her professional background.

Academically, hostel students awaiting to join A’ Level performed very well including first grades which enabled one boy reach the finals of admission into the Cornerstone Leadership Academy as well as having one girl being admitted to the prestigious African Leadership Academy and other students placed on the waiting list.

The hostel also received a consignment of text books mostly Science based; donated by student friends from the USA.

The hostels acquired a qualified matron who also acts as the hostel nurse. This has seen the number of sickness cases reduce. Plans have been finalized to ensure that there is procurement of basic medication to respond to the immediate medical needs of the students pending referral to more equipped health facilities whenever need arises.

There has also been recruitment of a qualified hostel manager has ensured that cases of low school attendance, poor hygiene, etc are reduced.

I thank CIYOTA for the effort put in molding my life and I don’t hope to regret in my life because even if I have not fully succeeded to where I want to be, I have I can see that I will reach where I want to go.

I have a passion for providing a solution to my community problems and dream of a situation when everyone can have a chance to go to school which I have witnessed can change lives.
