Two more kids enrolled in school!

Good news!  Arnold and Judith have each found a school to attend so that makes 6 for 6 Nshombo family children enrolled in the winter school term in Kampala by Boise To Bukavu, Inc donors!  Your help is needed to keep them there!  See the “Donate Now” page for details!   Having the children in school not only furthers their education, which is vital to their future,of course, but it will also give the Nshombo parents time to work on creating a business to help support their family.  The kids will get school uniforms and a hot lunch each day as part of their tuition costs.  This means less cost to feed them at home and less clothing costs for the family as well.  Thanks to those of you helping to send these kids to school.  We will post information about the schools shortly so you understand where your dollars are going and how this impacts these children.  They are so grateful for this opportunity.  Arnold will be taking pictures of the kids in their uniforms and at their schools soon for us to post!  The new school term officially starts in early February in Kampala.  Please stay tuned for regular updates (at least weekly and sometime more) on life in Kampala for the Nshombos.  They recently started the process of applying for refugee status with the United Nations in hopes of eventually getting to the United States – or a safer continent which offers them a future.  

Soon we will be creating a section of this blog to talk about the refugee assimilation needs we plan to address within Boise.  It has been very gratifying to assist the Nshombo family with their needs in Kampala and we will continue to do this until they have had time to become self sufficient.  They are certainly very driven towards this end.   More soon…
