Obumu Nederland -Uganda

Dear Friends,

We are excited to announce an ongoing fundraising campaign for the build of the St. Charles nursery and primary school. The campaign is an initiative by the 'Obumu Nederland-Uganda' foundation. 

But first, a little context of who we are, what we do, and why we do it. . .
Obumu Nederland Uganda is a non-profit organization that aims to provide educational and psychosocial support to school-age children and their mothers in the Rakay district, Uganda. 

The local community asked for help in their initiative to start the St. Charles nursery and primary school to provide their children in better education. After evaluation of this initiative Obumu decided to support them. The local community has proven over and over again that they are highly motived to making the school and their goals a big success! 

In the first few years of operation (we started in 2014 ) the foundation was able to build 6 classrooms, a sanitary building, full year watersupply and provide a foodprogramm and a vegetable garden.   

With the support of friends like you, we enrolled 415 children into the school and we have a lot of children waiting to be enrolled. The level of education is so good that the Ugandan governant uses the school to set an example for other schools. 

The school has started classes for the mothers of the children as well. During these classes they learn skills necessary to become more independent, to provide for themselves and their children and to help them build a motivational social network around them.

Why donate? 
100% of the money raised will go to a great project which will benefit children's and women's education. Any donation will be greatly appreciated.

Our current goal. . .
Our fundraising goal is to finish the next 2 classrooms (the build has already started) and to take care of all the school needs, instructional materials, books, furniture, teacher support etc. 

But off course we won't stop there... More classrooms are needed to give the children and women in this community the opportunity to receive education which will give them a change for a better life.

We invite you to support our campaign and help the dream of the local community to come alive, as we firmly believe that together we will achieve much more.
