Reconstruct school for 200 rural students in Haiti

by Shashamane Sunrise
Jan 16, 2013

Semester starts with renewed hope for Marion School

January is back to school time for many of the children that we support. It is usually a time of great excitement for students as they are keen to share stories of the schools holidays, vacation activities with their families and the gifts and presents they received. For students who live in the rural and inner city communities we serve it can be a time of great anxiety and they struggle to find the necessary school and classroom supplies to start the school term.

On a positive note, Shashamane Sunrise has been selected as one of four charities to take part in the January Education Appeal of global donor marketplace Global Giving UK. The appeal highlights our effort at Okoboi Primary School in Ngora, Uganda to help reconstruct the school’s dilapidated roof and buildings.  For more information see our Project Page, website or our Facebook Page.

You can help. Give us two minutes of your time. Help us promote the Back to School Appeal:


  • Like us on Facebook, Twitter and refer a friend or colleague
  • Make a donation
  • Host a Back To School Fundraiser 

During the campaign, everyone who makes a donation of USD$25 or more will receive a Shash Tee. Additionally, if you host your own Shashamane Sunrise Fundraiser, one lucky person will be eligible to receive a roundtrip ticket to one of our ShashTours during the year. For more information e-mail:

In the Spring of this year we will visit Haiti as part of a site visit to prepare for a Fall Service Tour. We are seeking volunteers to travel with us to Haiti. Please email us if you are able to travel.


The current schedule for the Shash Service Tours is:


  • ShashT&T: 23-30 Jun
  • ShashJAM: 1-7 Jul
  • ShashUGX: 18-24 Aug  
  • ShashKEN: 25-31 Aug
  • ShashETH: 1-14 Sep
  • ShashHTI: 27 Nov - 1

We are also seeking volunteers to help us organize an Art Exhibit in New York City this summer to benefit the school.

We have recently completed a Grant for some funding for the building construction at Marion School. See attachment. We would welcome any suggestions for any funding agencies we can submit it to.


Best Wishes for the New Year to everyone.
