June 27, 2016
Hello, my name is Sherry, I am raising funds for Streams of Hope Uganda to help build a school for the children in a village in Bushenyi Western Uganda. But first let me give you a bit of background of WHY!! My first trip back in 2012 forever changed mine and my husbands life. We spent 2 weeks in a country that will forever be a part of us. In the next year we adopted two children from Uganda and became very close to many people in that process. One being, an amazing women (Syson) who is a teacher and has a deep love for the children of Uganda and her village. In getting to know her and her husband (jonathan) who is a pastor for the youth, we could see their passions for their callings in life. They now have too become family to us. Syson was given a piece of land to build a school but the local council has given her a time lime to complete this. Only 9 months. The total build will cost 7000.00, we have completed the first phase which is the foundation. We are still in need of 5,000 + 2,000 for furniture, equipment and supplies. I have made it my personal mission and goal to help her complete this. Once completed it will have 5 rooms with the opportunity to school 150 children, employ 5 teacher a cook and guard. At this time she is teaching 10 children in a run down room, hence the time line the local council and district is giving her. This village of Uganda has no schools near by so the local people are not able to send their children to school because the closet one requires transportation, between school fees and transportation, they just can't do it. The people in the village are already seeing the progress being made on the land and getting so excited they have already asked if their children can attend once completed. Not only is this school going to be able to provide and education but it will also provide employment. We love Uganda with all our hearts and want nothing more then to give back to the country and it's people that have given us so much. Won't you help us make this happen. I will be giving updates as the money is raise and the progress is made with the building of the walls and the roof and well as floors. The foundation has already been completed. After the completion I want to be able to supply the school with desk, chalk boards, play equipment and school supplies. Thank you for considering this fundraiser.
