Projects for Makumbi Orphans
2017 Project: Tutors for Makumbi orphans
The goal for the 2017 fundraising project, Tutors for Makumbi Orphans, is to test for gaps in the kids' learning and help them achieve grade level via tutors and a coordinated program of teachers, community volunteers and the caregivers (aka "Moms") of the orphanage.
Donors can truly help prepare a child for life by supporting their education.
2016 Project: Plumbing renovation
The pre-project reality at Makumbi Children's Orphanage was:
The capital project at Makumbi in 2016 was plumbing renovation at the eight cottages that house the 100 orphans thereby combating water borne diseases.
2015 Project: Termite damage repair
As a result of the 2015 run we raised $32,000 for termite damagerepair. (The buildings were literally falling down!) This project was a huge success and all the termite colonies were completely eradicated.
2014 Project: Halfway cottage construction and college tuition for older girls
Those benefiting from this fundraising project were girls aging out of the orphanage. We were pleased to raise enough funds to build a halfway cottage and send three young women to college for one year.
