Now that Irenge is out of the hospital and feeling stronger, he has been able to get back to managing the school and will be arranging meetings with others NGO's in Kampala. During these meetings we hope to get some on-going financial support from these NGO's who have stated their intent to help students get educated, but who did not have the budget to take that on independently.
Now that our teachers and students are really settling in to the school routine, we feel happy that we have been able to feed the younger students twice a day and the older students once a day. As research shows again and again, students who are genuinely hungry are not able to focus on schoolwork or retain knowledge.
The students and their families are so pleased to be part of our school.
The only issue with the continuation and expansion of Bootstraps Education, is securing enough donations to fund it. Please see our Budget, Urgent Needs, and Donation pages to find out what you can help provide for our students. (Unfortunately our Go Fund Me and Pay Pal donation avenues are not able to set up monthly recurring donations, so if you want to donate monthly, please make a note on your calendar to jog your memory.)
We would love to hear from you via our contact form or by email at email@example.com.

Thanks for being part of the solution!
