Sylvia's Children supports the Mbiriizi Advanced Primary School in Uganda which has 1,024 students (and support for another 120 in secondary school), of which 25% are orphans as a result of the AIDS crisis in Uganda.
Now in our 13th year of support we have built a well, a boys’ dorm, classrooms with furniture, a library with books, a kitchen, a chicken farm, a sewing facility, seven acres of land with corn, a 6,000 sq. ft. medical clinic and hospital.
First, a very special "Thank you" to those of you who so generously donated so we could buy blankets for the children last Christmas. Now, it's time to plan this year's Christmas trip and you are invited to join us for this joyous occasion!
The dates are November 12-22 and for $3,500 you will have covered all the costs except getting your Visa, the shots and tips while we are there. (This trip will have a safari component!).
This will be the eleventh Christmas party we have done and it is an unbelievable experience as you get to have the joy of being with children who are so very appreciative of everything! This year every girl will get a new dress and every boy a new shirts.
You will work hard, helping us pack 1,100 goody bags, serving the children and staff, passing out cake, etc. BUT you will feel so good afterwards.
In addition, we are inviting medical personnel to join us so they can work in the clinic and help the community and continue training our medical staff.
I need to start making reservations now so let me know as soon as possible if you will be joining us. Questions? Just call me 732 946 2711 or send me an e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Need to start planning!
Last year's joyous party!
