As I like to do after one of our fundraisers, I am printing a list of those who made the effort to donate in this last round of School Book Funding for the school in Uganda we support.
This is the 13th round of books, supplies and teaching aids we have provided to this little school in the middle of the Ugandan jungle. Without us, there would be none of the critical books and supplies needed to educate more than 270 children from the village of Buyijja, and other villages in the area who have no other school.
The best news of all, these gifts are changing lives…and the teachers there are reaching goals of success. of which many schools in developed nations would be proud.
I’ll let our project manager deliver the results…
From a FaceBook Chat Session this week:
Emmanuel Kibubuka: According to the Uganda National Examinations Board (Uneb) results released last week 38 out of the 43 kids who sat for the examinations at passed between Division Two and Division Four. Seven candidates passed in Division Two; 20 in Division Three; 11 in Division Four while one candidate passed in Division Seven. Three did not attain any grade because they were absent.
Emmanuel Kibubuka:This means that 43 kids qualified for their next week level of education.
To help make this clear…in a district of Uganda where less than 40% of the students regularly qualify to go on to high school (secondary), 38 out of 43 kids from our little school passed.
And at the lower levels, 94% are receiving passing grades on the national testing, compared to less than 26% when we first started helping the school.
This work cannot be done without you help. And in this last round, we met, and exceeded our needs in a little less than ten days. This happened from the generosity of many kids from my wife’s grade school, Twin Oaks Elementary, but mostly from donations from our very own “Addicts” here on TSTOAddicts.
Here is the list of those who donated. Every donation mattered, both large and small. As I have said before, the large donors make an impact, and help us to reach the the goal more quickly. But, it is the consistent, regular givers who always step up with donations of $25-$100 that are the real fuel in every campaign.
Thanks to ALL of you!
