GoalIM seeks to raise $5,000 in the next year to purchase school and hygiene supplies and to assist with tuition for unsponsored V2V children in Uganda
SummaryThe Village2Village project will improve the students’ overall education by preventing gaps in their education from a temporary lack of funding.
DescriptionThe Village2Village Project (V2V) in rural Uganda works with more than 100 orphans and vulnerable children living with extended family. V2V builds leaders through comprehensive care from preschool through university-level education. The Student Tuition Expense Program (STEP) provides scholastic materials for unsponsored V2V children so that they can continue their educations without interruption as they wait for sponsors. This project seeks to raise $5,000 in the next year to purchase school and hygiene supplies and to assist with tuition for unsponsored V2V children in Uganda. This will provide consistent quality education and care for 120 children. This project will be managed by Laurie Kroll, executive director of V2V, and the Ugandan staff.
Suggested Gifts$50 buys graph books and pencils for 40 students. $100 covers lunch for 20 students for a week. $250 buys copy paper and exercise books for 100 students for one term. $350 provides 40 primary school uniforms. $500 covers transportation between the village and the school for 60 students for one term
Prayer RequestsPray with Laurie Kroll and V2V in Uganda that, as the children grow into teens and young adults, they will become more aware of the abuse and neglect they suffered as children so they can turn to Jesus as the source of their healing.
