Give “The Gift of Education”  for our Uganda Sponsored Students

The sponsored students of Northern Uganda (click on their names to see their biographies and to print a donation formGorretti, Gloria, JuliusPeace, Sebastian, Stephen, Sunday) are grateful for the educational support that MMS and LJHS have provided for the past ten years.  It is only because of this kind generosity that 24 orphans have had the opportunity to attend school, have a brighter future and help their families and communities advance. The lives you change are the lives U-TOUCH!

Muirlands Middle School ASB Philanthropy Team is challenging each class to voluntarily raise $350 or more during the next month to keep these Ugandan orphans in school.  MMS is committed to supporting these sponsored students, which amounts to $7,000 this year.  Therefore, it is so critical that we receive your voluntary support now!  You are encouraged to share this information with your family, friends and neighbors.  Multiply your efforts and ask others to consider donating!  100% of your donation reaches the Ugandan sponsored students and related U-TOUCH programs.  

The total of each MMS student’s voluntary collection of donations will be appreciated with hand-made Ugandan gifts of their choice increasingly at levels of $35, $75, $100, $250 and more.  Additionally, 1st period classes that collect $250 or more will receive a giant “Uganda Have a Chocolate Chip Cookie” party.  The two classes that collect the most voluntary donations with the greatest percentage of voluntary student participation will receive a giant “Uganda Have a Chocolate Chip Cookie” AND pizza party.  

MMS is collaborating with U-TOUCH, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization by creating U-TOUCH Technology Centers, with free computer training with Internet access for the sponsored students and community.  All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law and every donor will receive a receipt.  For further information, contact: deb.plotkin@u-touch.org / 858.945.3220 or visit u-touch.org.  Please help our sponsored Ugandan students fulfill their dreams and have a future to help their families and communities improve employment and economic conditions.
