March 2019 – News from Ora

Dear Friends, Little did I know what would come of that foundation I laid 11 years ago. It was an act of hope, not knowing where it would take us. It gives me the greatest of pleasure to attach this newsletter written by Christian Ora, one of our students who was one of the first students I chose to be sponsored. This letter shows the amazing success which courage and determination can bring. I am so very sure that you realise that these things would not be happening without your continued support. Our sponsorship programme is our lifeblood, if you are interested in sponsoring a child please let us know.

I have a list of subjects and hopefully I will be able to get to it soon. My newsletter this time consists of photographs of main events this year, including the most wonderful gift to me of a celebration day when I was treated to a Traditional Rwandan gift ceremony to me as a ‘mother’ from parents and the school community. A ceremony full of love and very moving.
