Alice Kahuzo - Ja Ja Girl

I am setting this "gofundme" account up in memory of a dear lady who helped many people. Alice Kahuzo passed away on July 28, 2017 due the negligence of a hospital in Uganda. She has left a legacy that we would like to continue; specifically paying education fees for children to finish school.

There are many stories to share about her and how she has helped people, as represented by the over 2,000 people who attended her homegoing service. One that is most urgent is paying for children to finish school.

To start, we would like to continue providing funding for two girls finishing school.

Here is one girl I met personally:

Her name is Karungi. I met her three years ago, but I got to know her a little more on this last trip to Uganda. Karungi dropped out of highschool because she cannot afford to pay the school fees. She is now a "house girl" in the home where I stayed in Uganda. She serves so graciously and if you are not careful, you will miss her. She desires to finish highschool and go on to college. School fees for her are approximately $200 a term, which is every three months.

I'd like to collect funds and pay the school directly. Anything left can be giving to her for uniforms and incidentals. If 20 family members give $10 every 3 months, it will cover her costs.

I am asking her in return to share her report card with us, and write an update on her progress after each term. Also, if you want to visit her in Uganda, you can stay at my friends’ parent's home. They are like family to me and will welcome you.
