For the school year that runs from February through November 2018, LITA contributors have helped 92 Ugandan orphaned and vulnerable children with the fees, scholastic materials and requirements they need to attend school. Having surpassed our goal to raise the number of LITA students from 42 to 70 in 2018, we realized an increase of 50 students over 2017.. and have had a very happy, and busy, year!!
With the coming of 2019 just around the corner, our sights are set on the new school year that will begin in February! Our fundraising goal for 2019 sits at $122,000 which will enable us to continue helping all those who were supported last year and answer positively the requests of assistance we have received from several other students for 2019.
We wholeheartedly thank you for every kind consideration and contribution toward our 2019 Education Fund. We need and value your support.
In 2015, LITA introduced an innovative and exciting music project to orphaned children in Uganda. For more info and to donate visit: LITA Music Project
With a mission to aid and inspire orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda through music, LITA Music Project gives the children the tools, materials and teaching to make and play a 3 stringed dulcimer.
In February 2014, in addition to dormitory housing and two latrines for orphaned and vulnerable children that were built in 2013, LITA completed the building of an eight classroom, brick primary school with two offices, in collaboration with a local community based organization helping orphaned and vulnerable children in eastern Uganda.
Thank you to all who make these iniatives possible for the children.
More Info about LITA’s Education Program – LITA supports the education of orphaned and vulnerable children by helping provide access to school along with materials and requirements for school.
‘Access’ can include helping develop housing at a school site for orphaned and vulnerable children who require full time care during the year so they can live in the dorms during each term and attend school every day, returning to the care of extended family at holiday time.
‘Supplies’ can include items like: scribblers, pens, pencils, math sets, back packs.. as well as school fees, school lunch fees, extra study support, uniforms, desks, along with local curriculum text books for reference in a library setting for the children.
All materials, where possible, are purchased within the local community and assist the children, caregivers of orphaned children, and local community initiatives in providing circumstances that encourage and support education.
