​A big challenge in Uganda is the education of girls. Agnes’ mother died in childbirth while delivering her seventh child. As the only remaining female, the responsibility of caring for the family (gathering water, cooking meals, washing clothes, etc.) would fall on her shoulders. Someone stepped forward to pay for Agnes’ school tuition, uniforms, and essential items which dramatically changed her life.

Join us for a special evening to thank our donors and report on the work completed in Uganda in December. Hear about our upcoming projects in July all in an amazing space! Enjoy this architectural masterpiece of the transformation of a church to home.

UPDATE: Silver Memorial Inclusive Learning and Education Center - an inclusive school in Opucet, Uganda. SMILE has enrolled 40 children that began classes in February 2022.

Proper sanitation is needed to improve healthy outcomes for the children attending SMILE. We are working with Stefro Engineering to create appropriate latrines for boys and girls.
Our goal is $6,000 to complete this installation. Any amount that you can give will help us reach this goal. 100% of your donations go to our projects and are tax deductable.

Please join us to see how you have changed the lives of vulnerable children in Uganda. We’ve witnessed the transformation made possible when children are able to attend school – especially girls and children with disabilities – and have access to clean water. We’ll tell stories and show you how you have helped us build the first inclusive school in the Teso region, supported a health clinic in Oukut village and drilled wells that serve tens of thousands of people. These projects increase independence, improve health, decrease disability rates, and reduces gender-based violence. 100% of your contributions go directly to these projects which is unique to VCAYA in the non-profit world and we’re excited to share how you have made a difference!

We would also like to introduce you to Melvin, a 12-year old boy living outside of Soroti. His tuition has been sponsored for several years and has made it possible for him to attend school. As a result, he has become proficient on a computer using adaptive equipment that allows him to learn effectively. This is important because his mother, Grace, is also blind. Melvin is developing independent work skills that are essential to his survival and future success.
