First of all thank you to all of you who contributed to our Big Give Christmas Challenge Appeal. We raised in total £2570 which was matched by Big Give to £5136!
2012 has been an amazing year for Ubaka U Rwanda and the boys that we care for.
I will mention a few highlights for which we can be thankful
- We moved into a significantly larger centre (read our post).
- We managed to raise the funds to buy our own plot of land in hope to build our own centre in the future.
- The boys continued to flourish personally whilst continuing to amaze us with their progress in school (read our post)
- Our founders Becky and Evode welcomed the beautiful Keza Usabyamahoro in to the world.
Apart from the last item, none of this would have been possible without the incredible support of our brilliant donors! Every penny counted and really has made a difference to us (the Ubaka team). Only the boys can explain what huge difference this made to their lives.
One of the foundations of these achievements is the dedication, unending love and work of Evode and Becky. Nor would it be possible without the work of the small group of Trustees and Ubaka friends who work so many hours to put everything together for no pay other than the satisfaction of knowing they helped the boys.
On behalf of Evode and I (as Chairmen) but especially the boys – THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts for everything you are doing and have done. Together we make a great team!
From everyone at the Ubaka U Rwanda team (see who we are) we wish you a very blessed and Merry Christmas
