For the past 3-4 months, we have been waiting for word from the Ugandan government about the future of education. Last week, they sent out the requirements necessary for schools to reopen. Each school must receive permission to reopen based on meeting new sanitation requirements. This morning (Tuesday, 9/1) an inspector came to RUHU and confirmed that significant renovations need to happen ASAP.
Meeting these requirements at both the RUHU primary school and the RUHU secondary school will cost $25,000. We believe that meeting these requirements is worth the money and effort. Here is why:
We know that asking for money right now is not simple. Many people are struggling financially. Knowing this, Sonja and I want to lead by example. So we're kicking off this 25K fundraiser with a $2,500 gift. We would love for you to consider helping RUHU reopen their schools by making a gift today. Hundreds of vulnerable kids benefit from these schools and will benefit from your financial contribution.
The pictures above are from 2016. In the spring of 2020 we celebrated our 10-year anniversary of partnership between Beautiful Response and RUHU. Each month we've been remembering a year of our partnership. In 2016 we were hitting our stride, growing the RUHU school and sending our oldest kids off to live in their own small apartments.
