With the arrival of 2019, and our sights set on the new school year beginning in early February, our fundraising goal for 2019 has raised to $122,000. This amount will enable us to continue helping the 92 students who were supported last year and answer positively the requests of assistance we have received from several other students for 2019.

17 February 2019 Update: So far, 133 students have returned to school for first term made possible by our kind and generous contributors! Thank you!

We wholeheartedly thank you for every kind consideration and contribution toward our 2019 Education Fund. We need and value your support.

Thank you.

Looking and feeling very wonderful in their new t-shirts from Marcon – one of the donors who made it possible – the children are standing in front of their new school, completed Feb 2014, singing Thank You songs of Love and Appreciation!

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.
