Dear Supporters;

Thank you so much for yout continuous support to GLH. The children’s health has greatly improved as a result of better nutrition. They can now are eating a variety of  fruits, greens, meat and rice.

The children had the opportunity to go for study Tour at Entebbe AirPort, the Zoo, and various historical sites like the Uganda museum and City Squares. The children learnt about key historical figures and other important aspects of the Uganda history.

GLH children have had the opportunity to participate in sports.  It was the first time the children played on such a large field.   They placed 8 out 12 schools and were very excited!  We want to thank you for supporting our children with sports gear which was a requirement in order to participate in the games.

Nabakooza, Irene and Patience have greatly improved in their school work.  Their spoken English and Mathematics skills are improving as is their social skills. You will remember the two girls are double orphans and it was not easy for them to adapt to life at GLH. Patience hopes to be a lawyer and Irene hopes to be a pastor. We pray that the Lord may reward their efforts. I have attached a  picture of Irene in front of her school classroom and one of Patience with the Head Teacher Julius. 

We continue our daily efforts to provide education, nutritious food and quality medical care for over 40 orphans. Twenty pounds will cover the basic cost to provide with these basic needs for one month.  We are still in need of providing back school fees for the second term.  Third term fees are due on September 22nd.  The total cost for 15 children is; 9,900,000Ugsh approximately 1,980 pounds.  And contributions towards the childrens education would be greatly appreciated.

Once again, thank you for supporting our children.

In God We Trust-

James Mukiibi

Dear Friends,


Thank you for praying …we have had a long school holidays since  December 4 to 22 Feb(unusual!) due to presidential elections which took place on 18/Feb. I am glad to inform you that we resumed our school programme on 22/Feb and all started well.


 This year my reports come to you quarterly and I bring News straight away from January to-date.


 
GLS students excited with the news of newly Introduced school uniforms for 2016.  Saying bye bye to the old colour (which used to get dirty quickly!) photo  attached.


 Our work reaches over 40 parents/guardians to change lives and transform many within the communities of Kibwa and Katooke,… – but we never lose sight of what makes it all possible:


Your support has helped us reach people like  Nabakoza and Patricia  (Sisters), orphaned sisters’ under guardianship.  These children had completely lost hope to study, enjoy good diet…following the death of the parents.  The two girls can now study, be fed, and assured of treatment in case of sickness….  At GLH. Now becoming more confident for a bright future. Patricia hope to become a lawyer and Nabakoza, a doctor. The difference you help make in Patricia and Nabakoza’s life will ripple across communities and generations.  


And changing the next GLH lives starts with you: GLH management is calling on 40 individuals to be Founding Partners in   this exciting year as we look for school fees to take back our students; - We need scholastics materials, school fees and maintenance fees .You will help us empower more children than ever.


November 2015,  Australian Friends  visited us for the Renovation exercise which was not completed due to limited time they had with us-We thank God for the work done ..Some jobs remained undone and the local team moved on with the a few Jobs.  See a few highlights for the Jobs done after our Australian friends left . photos attached
                                                                 
With the extra classroom as a result of renovation last year we are able to offer primary 4 this year at GLS ….Many thanks to you all who helped with renovation exercise.


Among the few tasks Friends  left behind was purchasing a nearby plot of Land due to an urgent need for extra classrooms (By having more rooms we should be able to enroll fee paying children for self sustainability) and Teachers staff houses. The purchase (50ft by 150ft land) was a success but the real challenge remains Money to build the proposed classrooms structure and Teacher staff quarters especially for Head teacher Busobzi  to move his family from Masindi to GLS (Kampala).  Busobozi  has just had a new born baby girl and I am sure he needs close contact with his family (1corithians7:1-3).

We work around the clock to make a tangible difference in children's lives. But none of it  is possible without people like you, and that's why we are calling on you to help. Previously we have seen taking our students through Primary as our target (helping only a few beyond) but then realised you cannot support vulnerable children for years and then drop them.2 students are under vocation education  two boys doing electrical installation and Vehicle mechanics respectively . We have another 4 girls who we would like to help. They want tailoring or hairdressing, neither of which require considerable equipment and both develop skills which have clear and immediate outcomes.  


We can't put our most ambitious, empowering plans in action without 40 people becoming Founding Partners of our 40 children we care of.  Changing a life always starts with one action from individuals like you. Are you ready to take it please? 25pounds can educate and feed one child for a month.

Thank you for all you do.

 The school third term has now been open for 1.5 months and is always a busy term in the year with lots of activities at the end like graduation of our Top nursery students to primary one, primary leaving final examination for 2 of our children who will be completing and now looking forward to either secondary level or vocational studies to acquire life skills.

The number of children in vocation is gradually going up and next year the total will likely hit to 5 or 6. We thank you that your support has pushed them there. So, far, these children are keen to acquire skills in Tailoring, hairdressing, computers applications, carpentry, electrical installations.
 Two student teachers, doing a placement, came to help.
Water connection came through in our home. We can now incur less/or zero  on water as  compared to the past .Children clothes are being washed as soon as they get dirty  not as at first when they could be heaped , then plan for water expense …may God bless you heaps and heaps for making water connection happen.
Praises;
1-Both Water and Electricity connection came through.
2- There have been less cases of sickness compared to other months.
3-Due Diligence re-registration process with Global Giving Uk is going well.
4-Feeding has greatly improved at GLH.
Prayer requests;
1-Friends will be visiting GLH end of this year for renovation work…pray that all goes well.
2-Due Diligence re-registration with Global Giving gets completed smoothly.
3-Our vocational students get fees to acquire life skills.
4-Good health among the children we care for and the staff.
5-Gerald (an orphaned boy) does well in his O levels and get sponsorship for a law course.
8-Children success in their studies especially as they hope for other classes next year. They will need God’s hand to achieve this.
9-Orphan sponsorship scheme Administrator to be got….We sent in request to friends but this has not been materialised. We pray for one young man who is still thinking over God’s direction on this.
As usual, 25 pounds can educate and feed an orphan for a month. So any kind help could pass through mark at markshawhamilton@hotmail.com or David at  meadows.dj@internode.on.net

Newsletter June/ July 2015

Dear friends and supporters,

Here is an update on our progress.

We have been very busy here at God’s Love Home/School, and hosted our great ‘Parents/Guardians meeting. It was exciting to hear from the community we serve how they appreciate our work. GLH is Godly sent, teaching is superb at GLS, we can now eat drink good clean food and water, get medical support…our children are really happy. Though some commented on the issue/need for immediate medical care to reach treatment points. The photo is of our recently purchased house

Our Sugar cane has matured and is now due cutting …our head- teacher ,Julius has been in Masindi chasing the process. I attach a photo for ongoing cutting activity…pray that the process goes well. A friend has helped with electricity connection and water installation is in process…Our Home/School has power… We can now use our one laptop computer to communicate with friends like you, Teachers can access internet through their mobile phones

 

There is lighting after dark and our hair cutter machine is being used. We pray that the water connections comes through quickly; installation is done but water is not yet seen due too long procedures involved.

We have had learning tour where our children visited wonderful places to look at the practical aspect of what they are taught in classes…They saw a giraffe! Our children enjoyed a day of total relaxation, starting with an hour of City square ,a zoo places,…… followed by superfoods workshop. Justus then made a short presentation of the organisation, followed by a gorgeous organic lunch. Photos were taken by our dedicated Teacher Justus photographer. We altogether thanks to all the other generous souls that also gave us a helping hand.  We are planning another event in September due the popularity of this first one, as everyone had such a lovely time and we had fantastic feedback!

James was generously supported with a study course on “Christian view on Disability ministry” which was conducted at Africa Christian Renewal University….We had a fantastic feedback on how to manage vulnerable children as Christians in communities we serve.

I shared about a new house we bought and I attach a photo …this house acts as a classroom presently. Again, thanks for supporting this cause for a next class.

 

Here are our prayers needs;

1- Friends will be visiting GLH for renovation work end of this year. Pray that this goes well.

2-Websit design progress goes well

3-Building planning goes well.

4-God’s provision for clothes, shoes of some children between ages 1 to 10.

5-Orphan scheme sponsorship to come quick and an administrator be seen to help on this .

Blessings,

James
