Hair clipper to help children stay clean with their hair trimmed it will reduce the expenses of hair cutting and protecting children from disease they get from public saloons .$52 

A motorcycle £1,100 (€1,320) ($1,400) UGX: (4,950,000) for basic transport needs

Van / Mini Bus ($10,000)
We don’t have proper means of transport to facilitate our outreach and other outdoor activities. The children and youth we work with are located in distant centers and they often need to come together or go out for bible, music, craft lessons, social and sports events, camps, conferences, etc. So we need a breakthrough in the provision of a minibus and driver to meet the need. 

Land ($25,000)
For the construction of our children/youth center which will provide a safe place for them to meet, learn vital skills, discover, and share about God to improve their condition of life. 

Prayer Request
Please pray:

  • That all of our children that are currently stuck - not attending school due to lack of funds get funding to attend school and brighten their future like other children.

  • That all our registered children get sponsors to access school ($20 per child per month)

  • For funding of regular food, medication, descent clothing, and bedding for all our foster children.

  • That we get funding to complete the construction of our MacGregor Foster house which collapsed last January so that children who are in need of urgent get shelter get it.

  • That we get funding for the vital December Annual Youth Conference.

  • For support, and protection over all areas of lives (spiritually, financially, and physically) of those supporting the work of YWAV.

  • For our leaders to be open-hearted and be touched and inspired by our project

  • That we secure funding to buy land and materials for the construction of our children/youth center.

Donate a scholastic Material

IMG_20200124_142202_019.jpg

Please partner with us to change this now. Donate a scholastic material and you provide an opportunity for a disadvantaged child to access school and have hope for a brighter future.

 

Did you know this? In our community, there are many children from poor financial backgrounds who miss out on school due to lack of what many of us refer to as simple scholastic materials such as a Note/Exercise Book, Pen, Ruler, Geometry Set, Crayon, Ream of Paper, a Pencil, etc.

Besides tuition, children from poor financial backgrounds will never have scholastic materials on time. They will always report to school late and are often sent home for scholastic materials. This means that they will always miss out on the curriculum which affects their education potential.

This is what your donation will provide:

  • £1/$ 1 / €1 provides 7 pens for writing notes.

  • £1 /$ 1 / €1  provides 4 notebooks (96 pages ) for lower classes.

  • £1/$ 1 / €1 provides 1 notebook (counter book), upper classes.

  • £1 /$ 1 / €1 provides 18 pencils.

  • £1 /$ 1 / €1 provides seven notebooks (48 pages) for the nursery section.

  • £1 /$ 1 / €1 provides 1 fountain pen.

  • £1/$ 1 / €1 provides 1 geometry set for mathematical lessons.
