Bambi Uganda

Sending children to school

In the country of Uganda, there are many children in need of education, beyond what the system is able to support. Unicef estimates there are 1.2 million children who are orphaned by aids alone. Fortunately, many children live with extended family or are supported in their communities.

Many of these families however are stretched beyond capacity financially, and lack the resources to pay school fees and other requirements for their own children, let alone adopted children. Whether orphaned or living with family, all children need a good education to change the outcomes for their lives.

The good news is, that sending children to school in Uganda, although cost prohibitive to many Ugandans, is relatively inexpensive by North American standards. For example, we currently send 8 children to school through our Bambi Uganda project, (5 in private school and 3 in public) for a total cost of about $5,000.00 for an entire year which includes three semesters, along with all materials and requirements to support their success.

Every where we traveled, in all parts of the country we met children who are in need of help with their education, and parents who are desperately seeking a way to give their children a better life.

Bakka2thesource has a dream to send 10,000 children to school. This dream can only be achieved when we partner with others. Your donation of $1.00 for the 13 track Ensigo download, along with our other fundraising efforts will be used to help achieve the dream of Bambi Uganda and our other three projects.

We thank you in advance for your support.
