Thanks to You . . .
Sister Schools raised nearly $20,000 to fund life-saving interventions in our Ugandan partner schools. Thank you for continuing to invest in the next generation of leaders!
Your support met three critical needs in our Ugandan partner schools:
COVID-19 has forced a massive shift in programming here at Sister Schools. With school closures in Western Washington and Uganda we were unable to distribute supplies or do return presentations last spring. Continuing lock-down restrictions and virtual learning meant we did not launch a new program cycle this fall either. But we still believe that compassion, service, and social responsibility are vitally important lessons for children and young adults, especially in the midst of a pandemic.
“We don’t want to lose our children. We don’t want to lose them. We want to motivate them and remind them of their dreams and inspire them to live after their dreams.”
– Emily Hashima, Director of Ray of Hope Ministry
While we are looking forward to a future that returns us to supply drives, container shipments, and distribution tours, we have also been reckoning with the reality of life under lock-down in Uganda. Our greatest fear is that many students who were enrolled in school last March will not be returning and will not benefit from the donations given by our local schools.
You can still make a difference by making a donation today:
Did you miss the Virtual Gala or do you want to watch it again? You can check-out the video on Sister Schools’ YouTube channel! Because of you, we were able to raise almost $20,000 to support Ugandan communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
