September 2015 update

Development Support programmes give the opportunity to monitor and assess the work of Care for Uganda.

 

We regularly look at the work we are doing and ask ourselves if there are areas where we can improve and be even more effective. In this process it is very useful to have 'new eyes', so,  Hope Jones and Kirsten Phillips, both from Bryncoch in Neath, came to Uganda in July to help us with this process.

Children from a school in Bridgend made pillow case dresses. Most children in Uganda would not normally have new items of clothing so they were delighted to be given these dresses.

We visit parents, grandparents and guardians of the sponsored children.

One of our sponsored children, Herbert, is deaf with no speech. He attends Luwero boys school where he is in a special teaching unit.

Two piglets are given to families for breeding. Over time this leads to an increase in family income which, in turn, leads to a slow but steady rise out of extreme poverty.

We visited Ebenezer primary school in a village in Kasozi. Conditions are extremely basic but the head teacher and teachers are dedicated. They are committed to giving their pupils the best educational experience they can with the limited resources that are available. Through a donation given to Care for Uganda specifically for education, we are looking at the best way to help and encourage this school.

We were able to present some games and wall charts to the school.

 

Care for Uganda have been able to impact the lives of well over 350 children through their child sponsorship programme. It is wonderful to see the changes, both to individuals and to families, which sponsorship brings. There are literally thousands of children who are desparately in need of sponsorship. If you would like to help in this way please email for a sponsorship leaflet.

The training of Village Health Teams is progressing. FLOW (Friends of Luwero), the medical wing of Care for Uganda, has recently received a grant which will enable this training to continue for the next two years. Motorbike ambulances, donated by FLOW are having a positive impact within the community.
