We just worked again with Spouts (see post from August 2015) to acquire 10 ten new ceramic filters! These low cost filters ensure our children have access to clean water while minimizing cost from other forms of sanitizing the water, such as boiling it!
To help reduce costs and improving the sanitation of our living space, we moved to a new home! In addition to reducing costs with this space, we have decided to begin sending the children to the local primary school, allowing our residential staff to provide extracurricular academic support at home!
We had a beautiful graduation ceremony for our kids in December 2016! We wanted to reward the children for all of their hard work and get them excited to keep on learning!
We raised almost $2000 with our December 2015 fundraising campaign through the support of our generous donors. We can't wait to start sharing pictures of the things this money has done for the children!
We have registered with Amazon Smile! If you make a purchase on Amazon Smile, 0.5% of the cost can be donated to our orphanage. Register Raise Uganda Now as your desired charitable organization!
Alex and Spencer headed a fundraiser with Krispy Kreme and HCPEA, a Harvard student group, to sell donuts on Harvard Campus. The fundraiser in total netted over $700, enough to pay for the food, water, and electricity at the orphanage for over 3 months!
Thanks to a generous donation from Spouts, RUN Orphanage and Academy now have clean water provided by ceramic filters and no longer need to burn charcoal to purify their water.
