Description of charity's activities and outcomes:
Donations received this financial year has allowed us to continue to accept village children to attend schools in Uganda - almost 4,000 students are currently attending schools we have built. It is wonderful to know that our students are consistently achieving higher results than existing schools in Western Uganda.Almost 1500 individual members belong to the 87 Community Development Groups we support in Uganda. All Groups are eligible to apply for grants for income generating projects.The Vocational Training College in Uganda had 503 students this year and because we are accredited by 2 Universities, all students were offered employment prior to graduation.Students attending schools in Kenya number almost 3,000.This year we have been able to support new projects offering education and safety to homeless children. One new lower primary school in an inner city slum already has 157 students. By encouraging Indonesians, we have helped to commence 2 more Pre-Schools this year - one in Palangka Raya and the other in Bali.The Mental Health Facility has undergone major renovations over the past months and is now receiving patients again.None of our workers receive salary or expenses, and we invest donations as they are received.Airfares are paid by workers for their own travel.Administration expenses are deducted from the interest received on investments and the balance is used for projects.We are delighted to report that once again, we have given more finance to projects than we have received in donations.
