Giving Tuesday 2018
Going Kansas In Uganda
The founders wanted nothing named for them. So, in true Ugandan style the origin of the founders, Kansas, would become the name of the only secondary school in that part of the Ugandan bush. Kansas College, born over 10 years ago, continues to be a force for good in the lives of the poorest children in that region of Uganda. But we are always looking for ways to do more.
This is our third year of targeting big needs through the Facebook campaign, Giving Tuesday.
This year our goal is $8000.00.
Soap, tooth brushes and toothpaste, deodorant,
and the greatest expense…our girl’s hygienic pads. It is over $500.00/month. We investigated reusable pads but with the threat of HIV it isn’t a viable alternative. Without these products our girls lose school time and are socially isolated.
Giving on Facebook through our Fundraiser on #GivingTuesday gives the opportunity to double your giving. Paypal has partnered with Facebook to match funds up to $7 Million.
Consider us again this Giving Tuesday. As always, it literally changes the lives of our kids.
