You and Us

Thank you!

First of all we would like to say a big thank you to all the TFCM supporters who have been with us on the journey so far. You are making a real difference in many families’ lives in a variety of different ways.

Thank you...

For more than 200 potentially lifesaving mosquito nets

Thank you...

To our regular sponsors who enable schooling for 80 children so far, giving them an education and hope of income for their future.

Thank you...

For the varied admin support that individuals have given since the start...from designing fridge magnets, typing up our newsletter, organising presentations and maintaining contact with sponsors.

Thank you...

To friends and family who gave generously in memory of Maureen Miles, Paul Checkley and Cherry Bray to help secure the purchase and development of a new children’s house for orphans as well as a new kitchen with smokeless ovens at our school.

Thank you...

To our local churches for raising funds for 50 solar lights for homes and village huts without electricity.

Thank you...

To Rose Checkley for cutting 10 inches off her hair to raise funds. Thanks, also, to a local band Brother John for producing a CD, sales from which helped meet the cost of much needed school equipment.

Thank you...

To The Nepalese Ladies Sewing Group in Hong Kong for making and delivering 60 new dresses to Ugandan girls who had never owned one. 

There are many more ‘thank yous’ to say, for which we don’t have the room here...Thank you! We are so grateful for all of your support. We are a small charity, easy to connect with. We give our time to serve our Ugandan family. There is loads of room for new people to get involved, either as a ‘one off’ or on a regular basis, remotely or more locally.

100% of the money that comes in goes out to Uganda each month. Nothing is kept back for U.K. administration.

 

 
 
 

 

Schooling for children


Join the Buddy Builders Club (BBC)

Stronger together...Double the impact

 

This project provides opportunities for two ‘Buddies’ to partner with each other through TFCM to sponsor the schooling of two children from the same needy family where the guardian is struggling to meet the basic needs of the children, and where funding of schooling is pushed down the priority list.

The sponsoring ‘Buddies’ could be two members of your family, or two close friends. The sponsored 'Buddies' start their schooling at the same time as each other and ‘buddy up’ to support and encourage each other at school, even though they may start in different classes. That said, we do have quite a lot of families with twins who would start in the same class together... like these two!

The Buddy Builders Club is all about two people who care, connecting with a family in need in Uganda, for whom hope has to look like something tangible... and which brings encouragement and a foundation for a better future into their lives.

When new ‘Buddies’ join the Club we share the family situation with them. We then keep them updated on the progress of the children at school and any TFCM support activities in which the guardian is involved.

Sponsor a Child

 

TFCM promotes and supports schooling for children in two of the three locations in which we operate.

In Kawempe we partner with 3 separate schools offering education from Nursery and Primary level through to secondary leaving stage. In Kalagi we have our own school which currently provides nursery and primary education only. 

Some of the children from Happy Hours Primary School, Kawempe (with TFCM Co-ordinator, Fred, and Suzanne visiting from U.K.)                                                         

 Graduation Day at our school in Kalagi...as pupils celebrate leaving Nursery Top Class to start in the Primary School!      

All the children sponsored for schooling in both locations are from the poorest extended families living in the area, or are orphans cared for in the Children’s House in Kalagi.

TFCM promotes the Buddy Builders Club (BBC) as the preferred option for child sponsorship, but sponsors for schooling of a single child are also needed and always welcomed.

The monthly cost to sponsor a child is £15 (20 USD) which is used to contribute to these items:

 
 
 
 

  Child costs         

  • school uniform
  • scholastic materials
  • personal hygiene items
  • daily hot meal and drinks.

  School costs

  • teacher and staff salaries
  • classroom equipment
  • learning materials
  • security
