Sherwin and I (my work partner) will be leaving for Kasese, Uganda on March 4th, 2014. The name of the high school is Rwenzori College. We have not been there yet so we do not know exactly what it will be like, but we have been reading up on that area and we have some info from the people that are sending us.
This is what inspired me,
"Poverty is also a big problem at the High School. There are 480 students in school and 320 students were not able to pay their school tuition. The level of poverty varies
though. All students are obligated to wear a school uniform, but some students cannot afford this, even though the school chose for cheap uniforms. There are some students who
wear old and wasted uniforms from previous school students. These students get picked on because they wear old uniforms."
The uniforms cost about $10, so we were thinking that we could raise money before we go and when we get there, buy new uniforms for the ones who are wearing old ones. If we have any money left over we will be purchasing things they need like, tooth brushes, pens, pencils and helping as much as we can with tuition.
We will be taking a lot of pictures when we are there of the students, the school, the Uniforms and share them at the end of March when we return home. Thank you so much for your heart, for caring, and for helping out. It is truly so kind of you.
Also, feel free to Facebook message me if you have any questions. Big hugs and love to you all.
