Do something! Feed a school -Uganda

$6,460 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 28 people in 3 months
Created October 2, 2018
 Did you eat today? Some of our sweet and beautiful friends at "Let's Wake Up" primary school in Uganda generally only eat every two or three days. When they do eat, it is at school and it is with the very best that the school can offer. The school is going above and beyond but the most they can offer is ground, white corn with little nutritional value. As we played and laughed with these beautiful, young children some faded quickly since they hadn't eaten in days. How could we go home and do nothing?This is their everyday life of survival.  We couldn't. And, neither could the young people that we were traveling with. They reached into their pockets and collected $870 dollars before we left. This was enough to feed these sweet children, approximately 100 of them, a nutritious lunch of beans and rice everyday for six weeks. For some, this is truly the only food they get. Please note, regular weekly attendance by local church workers conducting bible teaching is feeding them spiritually! We now want to help feed them physically. The video attached to this campaign was taken just two days after the school received the money. With new plates and a sense of excitement, the children received their lunch! Since that day, we have received encouraging reports of a new found life in the school. Children can learn and play with new energy and happiness due to their full bellies. It is just that easy. We know there are desperate needs around the world. This is clear. But we must start somewhere. Our goal is to raise enough to feed the school for one year. We have already contributed for another six to eight weeks of food but we cannot continue to do this on our own. We need your help. Going forward, we are brainstorming ideas as to how we can make this sustainable. It would break our hearts to feed the children for a year, only to take it away. Golf tournaments, a non-profit...we will look at all options but for right now, the need is urgent! Can you help? Please watch the video and consider how you can help. We will post updates and new videos as the headmistress shares them with us. Thank you from all of the children. We wish you could receive the love and joy from them that we experienced but please know that they are truly thankful and their lives are truly changed!

Also must be noted that NONE of the money raised goes to airfare costs. All of the funds will be used for the food for the school children.

So amazing to see that we have half our intended goal to be able to feed the kids for an entire year! Thank you for your so much for your support!

Just a little more information .

In February we are planning to fly to Uganda and meet with the School leadership and distribute some funds. We are in a weekly contact with workers in Uganda and can ensure that things are going very well and provision for the kids is going as planned.

Our family travels to Africa at least once a year and plan 2 trips for 2019. Thank you for being apart of changing the lives of these dear kids. It is humbling to see immediate action and results of your giving.

We are in the process now to be able to give tax receipts for further donations. Keep you posted.

Again thanks for your love and sacrifice.

Vic and Angela Doucet.

We want to thank all of you who have donated to this fund! The kids are very thankful too! They have had a constant dailey supply of nutritious food since we've started this campaign. "New life"
has been brought to the school due to your generous offerings according to the headmistress. We are in constant contact with a friend in Uganda who is faithfully supporting this work amongst the school. Very interesting things have also been happening here in Canada as far as moving forward with a more sustainable model of support. please be in prayer for this and we will keep you posted!!! Once again your participation has made a difference in the lives of dear children who, for some, now know people care.
