As a charity, we are providing hope to countless vulnerable children. Through our mission, we are saving orphaned children throughout all corners of Uganda. Today, I am pleased to share with you the impact we are making regionally.
A few months ago, our team visited the Luweero district of Kampala to meet Maria. Maria is an 8 year old girl, who lives with her family in the rural part of her village. Although a little shy, Maria is enthusiastic with big dreams. When she grows up, Maria plans to attend university and become a fully trained nurse.
Two years ago, however, Maria received terrible news. At the age of six, she lost her mother to AIDS. Maria stopped attending school and was forced to look after her 3-year-old sister, while laboring at a farm.
Today, Ugandan families are forced to pay for their child's tuition fees. Struggling to get by, many parents simply cannot take their child to school. Without an education, what future does Maria have?
Within 2019, Maria received help. She was enrolled into a child sponsorship program and registered at Destiny Bridge Primary School. Today, Maria attends school and receives a full, quality education. When we speak to Maria, she tells us how excited she feels about her future.
Through affordable tuition and safe medical care, children like Maria have hope. Today at Kampala Children's Centre, we are establishing a Medical Centre to help families like hers get help. We plan to offer safe medical care at reduced rates, while progressing research into HIV/AIDS. Our project is on the final stretch and due to open on the 17th July 2020.
In our schools, we are offering education at an affordable rate. We are also implementing STEM learning systems to provide greater engagement in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math. We plan to have full implementation by 2021.
At Kampala Children’s Centre, we believe every child is a miracle. Deserving of safe medical care and a full education at affordable rates. If you would like to make a difference, you can help further our mission. A donation of any amount will help us offer a child like Maria medical care, education and social assistance.
