It's time to start thinking/dreaming big for our charity and the kids in the program.

We have struggled for so long to keep these kids in school.
Often either a child will leave the program or a sponsor will stop helping
the kids they have chosen (which leaves a deficit ) if we can't find another sponsor to help.
Both of these circumstances make it hard on us as sometimes if a child leaves a sponsor
won't wish to choose another since they had a close friendship to ones they
had been supporting.
We are a small charity and we want to keep growing each year.
We've never been able to reach out to many areas due to
lack of enough donors but this year we have successfully
put 104 students in primary / Secondary schools located in 4 areas of Uganda.
The students come from 4 different villages , but our main project and largest
number of kids are from Mbiko where our work began in mid 2010.

Looking ahead to the rest of this year,
We have a possible 5k race that will fundraise for the purchase of land in

as in 1 or 2 acres just to get us started in our hopes to  build a small school
to reach out to even more than the 100 we're currently helping. That would be something
like a 3-5 year plan as that's how long its taken most school to buy land and build.
Nothing happens fast in Africa.

A typical school takes in 200-300 kids yearly.  We want to have our own school so we don't have
deal with typical issues that happen in Ugandan run schools like poor feeding, overcrowding of kids
in classroom and dorms, teachers hitting students with sticks and just a lack of care for kids in general.
We plan to fix all those issues and run a school properly with high standards.

WE plan to sell shirts, jewelry, purses and choir cds (all things we've currently been selling)
to raise more money to go towards the purchase of land and eventually building on it.
I saw many beautiful pieces of land during my last trip but most were above our budget

Costs for other things as we look ahead, just to give you an idea.
These things aren't unreachable by any means
as many orgs have done this before .
We just need to everyone's help in recruiting new sponsors so we
can help even more kids!

Bedding for dorms
Sheets $9
Blankets $14
Bunk beds $60- $80
Soap $2/ child
Buckets $3/ child

Help a precious starving baby boy.

Baby Abu is the 2nd child we've found in such bad condition. The only other starving child we found was baby Fatuma and she couldn't swallow well due to CP. Abu can walk but is weak and sucks his thumb constantly it see ms. He's lucky to be sponsored but his family situation goes beyond normal monthly sponsorship (mom is alone selling only sugar cane) and there is a sister who seems to be about 3.  Abu around 18 months to 2. They are lucky they had a mattress and net at home to share . The area of kamuli where they stay is Buwenge Mpia (the ghetto ) of kamuli. Where a few of our kids stay since rent is cheaper than in the town. its 10 mins or so walk from the tiny downtown. So we are wondering if any members would want to make a donation of any size to help with food, clothing or soap/ hygiene items and meds if needed. This will keep the family afloat for awhile until the mom can settle and figure out what else to do to earn a living. They only moved to t…

We've had so many illness within our org recently.
Kids getting sick , parents being injured on motorbikes, many people getting malaria from the
rainy season. One child with HIV is very sick right now and needs to be hospitalized but
we've always tried to use $100 of a child's school fee for that certain student. Funds can't be prioritized for other more urgent things If a family loses a house (and typical rent for our families per month is $10-$50) and we could help them for a month or 2 to get settled. Some families have emergency food needs
So if anyone would like to donate to this fund this would be great. The needs are so vast and can't be covered through monthly sponsorship (which is tuition and meals only)

If someone doesn't want to help a child monthly why not give an occasional gift of $10 or $20
Typical hospital costs range from $20-$100 this is far from what a poor Ugandan family can afford. With our help this can save a life.


Challenges our kids face


Our kids are doing ok in school but in everyday life they face so many obstacles.
Especially when kids are sick or have an injury . We have raised funds for a teen to get much needed surgery. So she can be able to walk without too much pain or issues with balance.

We have another child with CP who is doing well with leg braces, a wheelchair and therapy treatments. 

We have several kids with seizure disorders who are on meds and do pretty well
but have issues off and on.

Then our kids who have HIV, they try hard in school but some are sent home often when they feel really weak. Poor diet will always be an issue there. One sweet boy was turned away from his in-laws home and refused food there also. They told him "Go away" you have diseases, and there is no food for you we didn't budget for it.  This is all very common. Extended family , in-laws and especially step mothers tend to be very brutal towards kids who are not their own.
They have trouble providing for th…
