SEPTEMBER NEWSLETTER 2019
Greetings from Miryante home and school. We really love you all and we are grateful for the support that you render us.
Schools opened on the 16th of September 2019, and all our children are back to school in their respective schools (King Solomon Secondary School, Kiganda High School, St. Thomas, Miryante nursery school, Miryante vocational school).

Guidance and Counseling
Report from our counselor indicates that our children’s’ behavior has greatly improved since when they first joined boarding school. According to her, she no longer handles cases concerning bad behaviors.
Her report also indicated that the children are able to interact/seek help from the counselor through sharing the problems they face in their daily lives and finding immediate solutions to their problems.
Children’s hygiene has greatly improved as well as daily supervision of every dormitory.
There has been also a great improvement in the children’s academics.
On the 14th of September we had a farewell party for our horse trainer Mr. Aman Kumar and his wife Meghan who left the country. In their speech, they expressed how Miryante has been the best and hospitable home for them. Other speeches followed and we later had a meal that was prepared by Aman and the wife.
We also take this opportunity to thank the Dresbach family that donated a number of books and sweets to our children. This excites our children the more, they feel they are loved since there are people who think about them.
Under the agriculture department, we have planted various crops like 1 acre of kale, beans, more sweet potatoes, more banana stems, chia seeds, pumpkins etc. Below are some of the photo showing nursery beds with different types of vegetables to be transferred later to main garden:

Our banana garden is so productive. We are able to harvest at least 4 times in a month:
Thanks very much to everyone that is contributing towards our success!
