Isaac’s House Newsletter March 2018 About Isaac’s House As a small charity, we are extremely appreciative of our sponsors, donors and supporters. The success of Isaac’s House and the positive difference that has been made to the lives of the children we support in Uganda is wholly thanks to the passion, commitment and generosity of our supporters. Isaac’s House continues to be a personal charity with a vision to help vulnerable children in Uganda. We care for 19 children living at Isaac’s House children’s home in a safe, stable, family environment. Thanks to their sponsors the children have access to education and health care, and more importantly they have a place to call home. As a charity, we also support children in the community with their education, to give struggling families the opportunity to send their children to school and the chance for a bright future. With your support Isaac’s House are continuing to help in the community too; with various projects, business start-ups and family support. Latest News Education updates… We are delighted to inform you all that last month we received the results for Sam, Lawrence, Rachel, Julius and Bosco for the equivalent of their GCSE examinations. All of the children passed! The examinations were not easy, with only 9% of children in Uganda achieving a 1 st grade this time around, and sadly even 9% failed examinations altogether. We were thrilled all of our children passed their examinations as we know how hard they have been working over the past 4 years towards this how much these qualifications will help them with their future careers and chosen paths. We would like to thank our supporters as Rachel, Julius and Bosco would not have had the opportunity to continue with their education and achieve their certificates without your donations. Sadly only 1 in 4 children in Uganda reach Secondary level due to the expensive school fees or not reaching the required grades at the end of Primary. We are extremely proud of Sam as he was amongst the 9% in the country to score a 1 st Grade and as a result is continuing onto his A-Levels and has chosen to study Sciences. Lawrence has chosen to study Building Construction, and is going to be attending Nakawa Vocational Training Institute in Kampla, this Insititue is set up in a similar manner to a university so he will get to experience a student’s life. We wish both boys the best of success in this next chapter and will keep you updated on their progress!
