Kagoma Update

Latrine & Birthing Center: We will be starting the ground-breaking for the Soroptimist Birthing Center and the latrines at the same time.

School Desks: These (both teacher and student) are all sponsored and funded!  YAY! 

School Uniforms: These are all sponsored and funded! YAY!  The uniform colors will be red shorts, blue tops/blue dresses with red collars. The patch that we posted previously will be on these uniforms.

Books: We are short on the books. Still need donations, please click on buy-a-brick to finish these out.

Dedication Wall in Kagoma Gate Friendship School: These are currently being designed.  I will share the design once confirmed.

Fruit Trees: We are getting ready to start a fruit tree planting so that the Kagoma families can live off their land.  You may also buy-a-brick to buy a tree ($5/tree).  Make sure to put in the dedication that you want to buy a fruit tree!

Thank you all so very much for your continued support. Spread the word so we can finish the wonderful things we are doing in Kagoma Gate!

Note: Mark is returning to Uganda in October to finalize the court hearings. Once we are done, we can continue our work in Wairaka!    We will be starting the greenhouse project and livestock as a beginning to our very important projects in our village!

First Day Of School Is Coming

The first day of a new school year is right around the corner, for you, your child or grandchild we all know someone about to return to school days, and all education gives to us.

In Kagoma Gate Village Uganda, for the FIRST time in this villages history and thanks to so many of you, this November they will have their truly first day of school!

On that first day  Each child will have on their uniforms the newly completed patch above.

The School Building construction is complete!  LINK -  The desks are now funded and will be built and ready very soon! 

ALL we need now is the Text Books and Uniforms. 

For just $5 ( one brick) you can sponsor a text book(s) which will open the world to countless children for many years.

For just $5 ( one brick) you can sponsor a Uniform for  a village child eager to learn.

Please visit our site today Each virtual brick you buy will give the school a text book or outfit a child in a school uniform. For many children in Kagoma this uniform will be the best outfit they have, their pride and joy.

1 book or uniform or 5, 10 or 100, every single one matters and no act of compassion is too small. We need just 225 more "virtual bricks" to open this school.

Thank you!!
