BUILDING A SCHOOL IN UGANDA
A $14,5000 CAMPAIGN
$11,500 raised! Help us on this last $3,000 fundraising stretch!
Here are images of the present school
This community school provides Nursery and primary level education to the underprivileged and poorest 160 children in this community who take turns using the premises. It is basically a shack with dirt floor.
The government is demolishing such schools because they are considered structurally unsafe. They are not replacing them nor allowing reconstruction of a similar building. This one’s demolition was only postponed by our presenting our plan for reconstruction. A new school will have to be ready for the school year starting in February because the present one will be demolished in November
In spite of its shabbiness, the school is proof that with good teachers you can have a good school even in a tent or a shack. The graduates are all able to pass the secondary school entrance exam and continue their education, That is why families want their children in these church or community run schools rather than in rural public schools where bad or absent teachers result in the children failing that exam.
The plan is to build four classrooms on the existing school grounds donated by the community. Our campaign’s goal is to raise $14,500 while the community will contribute $2,000 in unskilled labor and material.

Many of you have asked why we did not start fundraising the day of the volcano eruption. Our answer is that emergency relief is not what we do and we chose to step aside and let those foundations who do it well obtain the resources they needed.
As we all know, there is always a huge initial outpour of support for disaster victims. We also know it does not last and when that initial relief effort is over and it comes to reconstruction the faucet has been turned off.
BUT THAT IS WHEN OUR WORK STARTS
We are asking now for your support because when the more than 3000 survivors leave their temporary shelters, they will have nothing to return to. The land they once owned is now uninhabitable. Their work tools, animals, and housewares are all gone. They have lost everything including loved ones.
Join us in helping the survivors reconstruct their lives.
Depending on your generosity and available funds, it could be just a house for one family ($4,000) or beds for many. As always, 100% of your donation will go into these projects. Our administrative costs are covered through the sale of handcrafts and registration fees paid by our mission participants.
Make a difference !

Dalaus, is an Ugandan child who had his hand injured when he picked up a toy that turned out to be a bomb. Your generosity funded the surgery that saved, at least partially, his hand. These photos were taken at the Merembe Clinic on the day he recently had his wounds cleaned and bandaging changed.

Greenhouses are the only way to grow a variety of nutricious vegetables for communities in Peru’s High Andes where the climate is harsh, the air thin, and poor soil means malnutrition is a constant problem for children and adults.
We are hoping to raise $3,000 and build a greenhouse for a charitable hostel in Amparae, a community located 12,000 ft above sea level. The hostel provides housing to 45 children from poor communities who would otherwise have to walk for two hours to get to school. Most of the children suffer from malnutrition. The greenhouse will add vegetables such as cabbage, carrots, squash, tomatoes and broccoli to their diet.
We invite you to give these children a healthier start in life.Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to donate or participate in the mission to build the greenhouse. A date for the trip will be set soon after the funds are raised.
