How can you help?

There are different ways that you can support the work that we do.

Nyakabungo Girls Secondary School

Sponsorship
It costs £180 a year  to support a girl at NGSS - or just £15 per month.
Hopefully she will be there from Senior 1 to Senior 6. At present we support 30 girls. We are looking for more sponsors who would like a personal involvement with an individual student. Can you help?

 

Samaritan Fund
We have recently started a special fund to help those girls who cannot afford all the necessities they need at the start of each term. If you would like to contribute towards this then please let us know.

 

Mosquito nets
We have promised to provide mosquito nets for all the girls at the school, on an ongoing basis.There is a new intake each year  at S1 and S4. The nets cost £4.50 each. We need approximately 95 nets  for the start of each new  school year in Feb.
Can you help us to fulfil this commitment?

 

The library
Ideally the school needs a new dedicated library and reading area. Any ideas on how to raise funds for this?


Ruth Memorial Nursery School
Approximate costs for running the nursery school with 65 children
Director               £100 per month
Head teacher       £55 per month 
Teacher               £51 per month
Cook                   £38 per month
Nightwatchman    £25 per month
Misc costs            £38 per month


University and Further Education support

A number of our MWT girls who successfully complete A levels at NGSS would like to go on to study further at University. However this is way beyond any funding that they themselves can provide, costing between £1250- £1500 per year, for 2 or 3 years, depending on the type of course taken and the University they might attend. We are setting up a University Scholarship Fund which we hope might help support some girls who meet the right criteria.

If you would like to support a girl through University or contribute towards the fund then please do get in touch.

Not all girls reach the academic standard required to go to University. However there is a great need to encourage those young people to pursue a vocational training of some kind. This again costs money. Can you help?

If you feel you can help or would like to know more then please do get in touch by contact us at marywoodtrust@gmail.com

The first term at Nyakabungo Girls Secondary School is just beginning. Some of our older students have left and some new ones are arriving. Please pray for those who are leaving home for the first time and are nervous about the new situation they find themselves in.
