Uplift a Child Children Activities During COVID

Our children families impacted with Flood in Assam
Our children families impacted with Flood in Assam

Dear Well Wishers, Sponsors and Friends,

COVID-19 has impacted us big time. It might have impacted us financially but will not impact us on our success. It will not impact our desire to excel. Frankly speaking, most of our children and families are underprivileged and their lives remain the same during the pandemic. All of our fundraising activities are canceled for the remainder of the year. However, some of our donors are very kind to us and have sent us a little extra. We are also very thankful to the US government who has given us a total of $7,000  to help maintain some of our applications.

Here is a little update on our new school year of 2020-2021. 90% of our operations are in India, 10% in Congo, Kenya, Nepal, and South Africa. In India, the government has approved a plan for all the educational institutions not to conduct the final exams due to COVID-19. Instead, they have promoted all of the children to the next grade by taking their monthly exam grades, quarterly exams, and half year exam grade results to an average. Because of that reason, we are unable to send you a final exam progress report to all of our sponsors for the 2019-2020 school year (which generally concludes in April). For the new school year, the schools in India will be starting (re-opening) 3 months late.

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, it is a similar situation, and final exams are not conducted. So again, we are unable to send a final exam progress report from there. For the new school year, it supposed to re-open in September and looks like they too may be starting a month late.

In Kenya, the schools will be re-opening only in January 2021. The government did not want to promote anyone to the next grade but to repeat the same grade again. All our children have lost a full year. I personally spoke to some of the children in Nairobi, Kenya and inspired them never to give up and continue the hope we all have for them! In South Africa, the schools will be starting January 2021. They will be on time.

Apart from our educational support to the children in all of these countries, we have also done some help for the families affected by COVID-19 and other related issues by supplying food and items under our budget.

 India:

April 2020: Our volunteers went to a few slums in Vizag, AP, India to distribute food supplies to some of those needy families. Please click on the link for details: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=upliftachild&set=a.1592409950922506

 July 2020: Apart from COVD-19, the state of Assam was impacted by floods. We are currently working with our local volunteers to help the victims of the flood (most of them are actually our Uplift a Child children families in the area). Please click on the link for details. This is ongoing and we will be providing a full report in the next quarter. See the details below: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?vanity=upliftachild&set=a.460819387414907

South Africa: Nagaraj Gurrala and his team from the Johannesburg area worked hard to raise some funds during the pandemic to help an orphanage receive some needed supplies. Please click on the link for details: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YvK_yLvAeyE

We would like to thank all of our sponsors, donors, and well-wishers for choosing Uplift a Child to help the community. We have earned all of your trust and that will continue forever.

Please stay safe and wish you a wonderful week,

Sam Vonumu
