OCTOBER NEWSLETTER 2017
Greetings from Miryante Home and School!
The children and staff from both school and home send you greetings. We are humbled to have your assistance and we greatly appreciate your love and kindness that you share with us every day. This has really been a progressive year for the Organization with a lot of good things taking place here. We are happy to have a home that can provide basic needs to our children and also a home that everyone looks at in the community.
A report about our children
We have got two candidates sitting for senior four final exams, nine sitting for primary seven leaving exams and four sitting for UBTEB (Uganda Businesses and Technical Examination Board). Their mocks were promising and we are praying hard that they perform well and get promoted to other levels. Several people have prayed for them and wished them success during their exams and one of them was Phionah Nalubega, an employee of Aptech Africa who came to visit the kids with Laura. They also came along with other friends who donated clothes and sweets to the kids. This was accompanied by a dance where the Schafer Family made a donation to hire a DJ to come play music.
Our cattle project is growing big. We are excited to inform you that currently five of our cows gave birth and we are now milking five cows that are giving milk to kids and we are expecting more to give birth.
Miryante Christmas Trip!
We wanted to try something a little different for Christmas this year. After surveying the kids, we got the feedback that they really wanted to take a trip to see the Nile River. The children at Miryante rarely get to travel and see a lot of the attractions that tourists see when they visit Uganda. If anyone might want to contribute to this donation, please let us know. Donations can be made directly through the website via the ‘administration’ section. The cost of the trip is $580, which includes renting a bus, meals for the day, entrance to see the source of the Nile, and a short boat ride. Together we are working towards this goal and we would be thankful for any contributions towards this!
Thank you everyone for your support!
