We desperately need the funding to keep St Anthony’s School, Uganda, open. Established in 2010, this vibrant school offers a lifeline for over 50 Deaf children who without it would have no language, no education and very little hope for the future.
The vibrancy and joy you feel when you visit the school is uplifting and inspiring. The children here are so happy to be at school and the whole place feels like a family. They are always excited to show you their work and involve you in what they are doing. Many of the children at the school are orphans; through poor maternal health care, a high prevalence of HIV and AIDS or through rejection and abandonment by their parents.
Father Anthony works tirelessly to keep the school open and to care for the children. He takes no salary, even though we send him one, all his money goes straight back into the school funds. At the land the school is built on he has a number of livestock and arable farming projects which helps to fund the school, his aim is that one day the school will become self – sustainable but for now he relies on the support they receive from generous donors in the UK.
I cannot stress enough how vital and vibrant this school is, and how much difference it is making.
We really need your help to keep the school open. Could you donate £10 and become one of the 1000 Friends of St Anthony’s, and could you persuade 10 others to join you?
It’s as simple as that by asking your network of friends you’re creating new friends for the school and the children who so desperately need it. Click here to donate
