Thank you all for the moral and financial support that goes towards educating children, ore so, the girl child.

Besides suffering from the effects of COVID-19, we risk having the children at home where they may be lured into early marriages, early unprotected sex, pregnancy, severe poverty and pure hopelessness.

The children we had groomed for the last 7 years are now back to zero ground without our protection, support, education and hope.

We herefore ask you to remember us as we struggle through this. Shcools are closed. The senior class of 35 children are the ones allowed to return to school. Teachers wont be paid because the parents have exausted their financial contributions towrds educating children. 

We ask that you help us with two current issues:

1) Furnishing the new classrooms geared to declutter students when they return. 25 to 25 Desks are needed, each at $13.00 per desk.

2) Contribute to salaries of these 6 teachers who have sacrificed and remain teaching the senior class of 35 students til March- when they sit for their final exams. Teacher salries range from $100 to $250 per month.

Thank you for your assistance.

Academic Year  2018 we had about 280 children. In 2019 we had about 300. Both years we had about 0.1 % drop out rate.


PLE was passed with excellent grades in both years.


We have provided Uganda with the best citizens of the future and we cannot do it alone.


Thank you for your continued financial support.


We are in a process of reducing class overcrowding in St Jerome Emilian Academy in Lunya, we have come up with a plan to make our own building materials. Here, a distinguished senior teacher( university graduate) Okumu Ronald is preparing bricks for the upcoming classes. Thank you Mr. Okumu.

The struggle of eliminating illiteracy and teaching the children their rights as Ugandan productive citizens starts with selflessness. Grades shall lead Ugandan children to colleges and universities, BUT if that graduate does not know how to produce food or build a house or repair a desk, the degree might as well be a degree of lack of basic knowledge.

Uganda needs to support skills training and hands-on curriculum so that our future men and women become global citizens. Life is more than academics, life is about living wisely.

Please donate and support us decrease crowded classes -50 to 60 children in a class is not the best learning setting.

At Kiwonnongo Foundation Inc Uganda, a lot of strides have been made.

The Senior Secondary School is vibrant with 8 youths who are eager to learn hands-on skills as well as academics.

Five youths have successfully been enrolled in Blessed Trinity school in Nalweeyo, one of our nearest prestigious schools about 150 miles from us (it is the nearest productive senior secondary school). Three boys and two girls that outgrew the education system are now enjoying a learning experience, thanks to your donations. Without you, these children would be married off to the highest bidder. They would have had many children of their own or would have died due to pregnancy complications. The boys would have married already and suffering to provide for their new families enforced on them by a culture they all know too well.

In the primary section, the 300 + children and thriving, vibrant and happy. All are shown from their smiling faces and the type of English they speak right now. 

We are taking on the major responsibility of teaching their parents too, to learn the values of education. It is not about getting rich. It is about knowing one's rights and using that knowledge for the future. 

Please donate and support these children's education and hands-on skills via Kiwonnongo Foundation. $10.00 a month is all one child needs. We have 300+. Thank you for your generosity.

Thank you and God Bless you.

Hello Well wishers;

At Kiwonnongo Foundation in Uganda, struggle continues.

WE would like to thank you for your sacrifice  of donating to the vision and mission of educating a girl child. As we educate the girls, we are also educating the boys. This year, we have managed to enroll   350 boys and girls and kep them in shcol for this year so far.

6 Older children graduated 8th grade and moved on to 9 th grade, they are doing well thanks for your contributions.

The struggle  is just starting. As the 350 children remain in school, so is the rise of  financial needs  they require.


With your prayers and continued support, we shall educate them all.


Pray for us.

Come and visit them in Uganda

Come and volunteer for a while at school

Sponsor a child of your choice - inbox me

And pray for my health so that I can continue to support 35o children and 35 staff

Plant a church at our Uganda site

Come evangelize


Thank you.

Hello and greetings;

Thank you very much for  all the time and donations sent to Kiwonnongo Foundation Inc of Uganda, as we stand to educate children, esp those who have out grown the regular educational system. In Uganda, a child could be 25 years old, but may not evenn know thier age since their parents do not know how to read or write and there fore did not record birth dates of children. At St Jerome Emiliann Academy, we get many of those. The population we serve is 98 % illiterate. We also accomodate any child of any age to join us. We have a program called Special Education Program where these older children are allowed to attend a program basically  teaching reading and writing. As grown children are very inqusitive, they learn very fast and as soon as they learn reading and writing, we put them at an age appropriate class to join the rest. This prevents them from stigma and shame. They catch up really quick and we have  seen positive results from this program.

Thank you again for your contributions, these funds assist with this special ed program and we have successfully sent  5 students to a SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL to Trinity  Secondary School in Hoima. One of them was the best student as he passed his PLE with flying colors. Another one is one of our overgorwn student sho repeated some classes at least 4 times and she has not finally graduated Primary section and is in Senior Secondary school. Her story is an amazing one.

Other children consist of Kato Patrick, whose parents are unable to support; Kasumba Charles, an orphan  and Nakagwa Phionah whose father dies many years ago. These 5 students wouldnt have gone to Secondary Education without your help.

Joan (18 yrs old) and Jackie (about 23 yrs old) couldnt read or write a few months ago,remain in St Jerome, but they are very enthusiastic about their academic lives.

Our children passed Our first Uganda PLE exams ( Grade 7 National Exams). We are very excited about this too.

We encourage you to support them on a monthl basis so that they stay in school getting education.

Giving is medicine for the soul. Thank you.

Mary Michelle

CEO/Founder of Kiwonnongo Foundation and St Jerome Emilian Academy
