Thank you so much for your continued support towards James, your monthly donations enabled James to continue school till he completed his grade seven, however, during the covid19 pandemic lock down imposed on Uganda to help curb the infection, James started attending an apprenticeship training on construction with his relative where he learnt so much of construction and was making money out of construction, he prefered to continue with his new learnt skill hence departing from formal studies,if James considers to come back for formal education in the near future, we will let you know, our project has identified another needy child eligible for support, for now this project will change name to Support Marion complete school, Marion is in senior secondary school, she had stopped school when her father fell ill, her parents are HIV positive and her dad is ill, this project will enable her to resume school and complete, in Uganda and especially during the Covid19 pandemic, many girls have gotten pregnant and wont be able to continue school, the very few that havent been involved in realtionships like Marion need to be supported to complete school, Marion in HIV negative.
I hope you are doing quite fine, James is doing fine too, he is on apprenticeship skills training learning construction skills, when schools resume soon, he will be able to go back to school, however, he is inspired to take on construction or engineering or architect in future.
There are many children in Uganda who havent yet made choices of what they want to become, James is lucky to have gotten an opportunity to identify his gift at such an age. Your continued support towards James and other Mountains of Hope programs have enabled us to achieve much in this difficult period of time, James is able to get for himself basic needs ith your support, when schools resume, James will require a new school uniform, shoes and other scholastic materials, schools are most likely to resume 1st March 2021 for all children in Uganda, schools have been closed for the last 12 months, many children have lost interest in Education especially girls and have gotten married or pregnant, for the case of boys, they have decided to find them selves petty jobs and are most likely not going to study anymore.
Our project through donations from generous people like you will continue educating young people the importance of education and as well suport them report to school again, Mountains of Hope staff have embarked on this programme to chnge the mindset of these young people so as to prepare them to study again.
Hi! It has been a while since I last wrote to you.
James is doing fine,its a long holiday as schools haven't been opened yet due to covid19 pandemic, James has decided to learn how to build houses, he wants to be a responsible man,after school when he is grown up he wants to be a builder, he seems to be finding his career, we will do our part in guiding him to discover his career.
Schools have only opened for finalists,it's most likely children will repeat classes once schools reopen next year.
When schools reopen I will let you know about it. James will be able to learn to do many more things during this long holiday
Thanks for your support towards Mountains of Hope programmes, this particular project wouldnt have supported childrens education had it not been because of you, however due to the out break of the corona pandemic, a total lock down was declared in Uganda and schools were closed down before the end of the first term, children are at home and the government of Uganda is making arrangements to have children learn at home using radios and television sets but most families do not have acess to such gadgets as rural areas do not have access to electricity.
The total number of Covid 19 cases in Uganda as of today stands at 741, 486 recoveries and no deaths, every other day, the numbers keep increasing especially from the truck drivers that carry cargo across boarders, the truck drivers infect Ugandan contacts hence increased community infections, the government of Uganda is most likely not to open schools now, there are local educational institutions which offer study material at a cost so that chidren keep studying even while at home, Mountains of Hope is cosidering enabling children in rural communities including James access self study materials so that children are not left behind especially those that donot have radios, smart phones or television sets in their homes, we have a project planned $30 per child to access self study materials to enable them continue schooling even when at home, at the moment this project is enabling James access quality education that he deserves but one coud make an additional $30 to enable one other child to access education amidst the pandemic.
We will be happy if you considered giving a child an education even amidst the corona pandemic, $30 per hild for 10 children.
I would like to say thank you on behalf of James, James is an amazing young man, James completed his exams last year, grade seven results are back, but James' results had not been released as he seems to have registered some one else' index number, the National Examinations Board found his index number did not match his name, we are not yet sure how he performed because of non released exams, once his results are out, he will go to a secondary school, once we establish he did not do well, we might have to give career guidance and see whether he ca enroll for a short practical course.
Thank you so much for your continued to help to James and his entire community.
