Send Ugandan Children in Kampala to School for a Better Life
Organized by: Christina Horton
Many of you will remember our friend Fausta Nalubega. She works tirelessly for the poor in her village of Kampala in Uganda, Africa. Through the generosity of others (possibly you), she was able to help keep her six nieces and nephews in school after they had tragically lost their father.
While we were raising the funds for her family against all odds, Fausta expressed that a call had been placed on her heart to attempt to send all of the children in her village back to school. They had all been attending until the fees became too high for them to afford. You see, Fausta isn't satisfied with just taking care of her biological family...she has a heart to care for all people in need, her family in Christ. Fausta saw God provide for her own family and now wishes to grant this same honor to the other children in her village.
She and I are asking for your help. We can send one child at a time back to school where their lives will be enriched more than we can imagine.
The cost for "public/government" school (the cheapest) is:
Primary school: $42 per child (food included)
Secondary school: $75 per child (food included)
There are 24 primary school aged children in Fausta's village and 12 secondary school aged children, for a total of 36 children.
Even if you can only give a small amount one time or monthly, that would help us to eventually send one child back to school at a time.
Any amount toward our goal would help these children immensely.
