Warm greetings from Miryante Community. All is well with us because of your support. We are so very thankful to the donors, who in one way or the other contribute to the upkeep of this project and taking keen interest to read our monthly reports.
God bless you abundantly
On Good Friday and Saturday before Easter the children and staff watched the movie of the Passion of Christ. Everyone enjoyed seeing and listening to biblical stories in this creative form of learning. On Easter Sunday they had prayers in the morning and the afternoon they had a delicious lunch of plantains, rice, fish, meat, peanuts and soda. The children really enjoyed their Easter day.
PRESS CONFERENCE: To celebrate Women’s Day, our partnering organization (Uganda Women’s Network -Kyegegwa) held a press conference at Kyegegwa District headquarters to amplify and highlight the emerging issues affecting women in different sub-counties of Kyegegwa District. The press conference was to discuss a way forward with stakeholders on how to prevent violence against women and girls. The press conference was attended by the UWONET project assistant, the Executive Mrs. Doreen Tigah, the Probation Officer Mr. Augustine Kyakabwa, and other district officers and stakeholders.

women’s day in kyegegwa district.
On the 31st of March 2021, Miryante Children’s Home joined Kyegegwa Distict and other partners to advocate for gender equality during the celebrations which took place in Kyegegwa town. The celebration started on the 30th of March 2021 with a women’s bicycle race around Kyegegwa town. The theme of the event was ‘Building on women’s strength for a better future in a COVID-19 world” and the mission was to encourage women and girls to be active in strong in the community. This involved a number of empowered women like the Deputy Chief Administrative officer, the Sub-county chiefs, and the community development officers. Miryante entered with a team of women from the community. We were also blessed with a number of donations from companies and good Samaritans from the community who donated a number of items such as biscuits, water, soda and food towards the day.
The main event was on the 31st of March 2021. Our guest of honor was Minister of States and Culture, Mrs.Peace Mutuuzo, who thanked the leadership of women council for all the love, care and efforts put towards women empowerment. Miryante Girls Club also got a chance to present their skits on girls empowerment. We are glad to let you know that Women’s Day was really wonderful for everyone here.
