The kids are back in school

Kids and caretakers alike in the village of Kaihura are celebrating the children’s return to classes. “The last two years have been incredibly difficult for the kids and their teachers and caretakers,” said Prossy Babone, Bringing Hope to the Family Uganda Administrator. “The interruption of our lives by the Covid pandemic led to a tragic lack of consistency and normalcy that these children need so badly. We are overjoyed to try and get back to normal!” We are too, Prossy! We are too.

Our BHTF Uganda educators and caretakers rely on your help to maintain a safe, “normal” environment for these kids. Please help them by making a donation today.

Bringing Hope to the Family Uganda is reporting that a fire has destroyed the dormitory at the New Hope Vocational Institute Kyongera. Fortunately there were no injuries, and an investigation is underway to determine the cause. In the meantime, BHTF will need help rebuilding the dorms. Please consider a donation to help with this rebuilding effort.
Thank you.

Our renewed commitment to clean water

One of the biggest challenges faced by the communities in rural Uganda is access to clean water. Although we had success last year in facilitating one new well, the need is much greater. “Access to clean water is a human right,” explains BHTFUSA Executive Director, Christine Deschaine. “Over the many years that I’ve visited the Village of Kaihura, the lack of fresh water has been an overwhelming need.”

Building new water wells is a top priority for BHTF USA in 2022. Our plan is to build at least six wells. Please join us in this important endeavor.

But Charlie Rogers has demonstrated time and again that he can always make time to volunteer for BHTFUSA causes. “Charlie has never hesitated to help when called to action,” says Christine Deschaine, BHTFUSA’s Executive Director. “We greatly value his enthusiasm in helping with our events, marketing materials and so much more.”

Charlie recently joined the BHTFUSA Advisory Board and continues to include us in his busy life. For that, we are grateful. Thanks Charlie!

Enock Vicent Alijuna

Vicent has been under the care of the loving staff at BHTF Uganda since he was an infant. He and his siblings arrived after their mother died and the father was not found. He has now entered his secondary education, and his caregivers have high hopes that he can attend Nyakasura or Mandela school. 

Your donation of any amount to our Education fund goes to assist Vicent and other students at BHTF. If you would like to support an entire year of Vicent’s education ($1,250), please contact us.

Lillian Kansiime

Lillian was found by an outreach team without parents and under the care of older siblings in a grass-thatched house on the verge of collapse. She was first educated at Hope Academy Nursery and Primary School and is now studying at Mandela secondary school.

Lillian is hoping for a full sponsor, but any amount donated to our Education fund will help her and the other students. If you would like to support an entire year of Lillian’s education ($1,250), please contact us.
