Many of you may be aware that over the last few years Sis Safina Kavuma has been running a charity, Ekyombo, that diligently seeks to address poverty and lack of education in the village of Namabaale in central Uganda. By the grace of our God, and with a small team of volunteers and family members, Sis Safina managed to start a school in the village, Namabaale Progressive School in 2017. Students ages range from 3-13 years old; and the numbers have continued to grow steadily since its opening in 2017.
With more students attending the school daily, and with just seven teachers available, Ekyombo needs your support to employ more teachers and complete the building of the school. (class room).
Here’s how you can help: With the Buy-A-Brick fundraising initiative, you can buy a brick for £1. £10 buys 10 bricks and gives you, the donor, the opportunity to have your name inscribed on the school classroom wall for all to see. You can of course buy as many bricks as you wish.
Another way that you can help is by sponsoring a Namabaale child by giving a monthly contribution of 10, 15, 20 or £25. Please see the poster on the noticeboard for information on how you can support this worthy cause.
