We are so excited to share our progress with you! Thanks to donations to our Globalgiving crowdfunding campaign, our team in Gulu has almost finished construction and we are looking to officially open the first Hope Center for classes in April. Since we hit 2018, we’ve finished walls and roofing for the building. Finishing touches like paint, electricity, and plumbing will be completed in the next few weeks.
Our Youth Literacy and Girl Power Gulu programs are continuing in rented space unitl our new center is officially open. We have seen a steady increase in particiption and success from the children enrolled in these programs, and look forward to expanding when we’re in our new space. Project Uplift, our microfinance and business training program, has also been doing very well, and is supporting 2,100 people in Gulu area with small loans and financial education.
We look forward to keeping you updated with our progress, and could not be more grateful for the impact your support has allowed us to make. We’re proud to show you the attached photos of the amazing things we’re accomplishing in Gulu!
