Back in June you all prayed and supported me in my trip with Project HOPEFUL,NFP to Uganda. Thank you for all of your encouragement and prayers while I was raising funds and in country. This is a bit of a followup to that trip.
While I was in Uganda, I met and had several occasions to speak with and encourage three young men. They made some bracelets that I purchased. In interacting with them I found out that they had one wish in life and that was to finish school. I connected the three young men with an organization Genda Uganda and pastor in the area. Richard Kibirango has met with Derrick, John Calvin and Fred to ascertain their needs, desires and potential for aid.
I am writing to you all to consider praying for these three and to give you the opportunity to help three deserving young men have a future and a hope in supporting their continuing education through Genda Uganda. John Calvin and Fred have the opportunity to go back to school to enable them to finish their educations and have the chance to excel and have a future beyond making bracelets for a store owner. Derrick desires to go to trade school to learn to be a chef.
At this season of giving and plenty, would you consider partnering with me to make these three boys dreams come true. The cost for school is about $145 per quarter plus some expenses like, books, paper, supplies. That is less than $800 per year for each of these young men to change their lives.
If you are interested in underwriting part or all of one of these young men's dreams, respond here or write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you the details.
Thank you for your thoughtful consideration and prayers,
