Meet Nasim Naigaga
I am by the names called Naigaga, Nasim, ten (10) years old. I have two sisters and two brothers. Currently I am in primary three (3rd grade) at Omega School, staying with my grandparents in Buwenge Town Council, Jinja District. When I get back home from school, I help to cook food for my grandparents, fetch water and do some other things.
I cherish the first day I first joined Rescue African Children (REACH) sponsorship program. I am the only fortunate child in our family who received a chance of sponsorship. Our parents divorced when I was too young, I cannot tell the story very well how it came about but at the moment all that I know my sickly mother, who is HIV positive, she went to a place I do not know and my father got another wife who did not welcome us to stay together with them.
Our grandparents worked hard to take care of us and paying my school fees and giving us food, until I got a sponsor at Omega School. While in my baby class at Omega School I was registered by REACH and our Director went to America to get sponsors for children. When he came back he told us that; “Children got sponsored and you are one of them.” I went back home happy and told my grandparents and they got happy.
I used to sleep on the ground like many other children, wear torn clothes and going to school without school requirements. But I am now very happy for the gifts I receive from my sponsors. When I got the birthday gift from my sponsors I bought a bed mattress, blanket and bed sheets. I now sleep on my bed under a mosquito net; Malaria cannot get close to me. Malaria is a bad disease caused by mosquitoes and it kills many children in my village who do not have mosquito nets.
I like all the gifts I receive, the cow, which were given to me, a calf and now we take milk with my grandparents and many other gifts. I am now at school studying. It is my prayer that, God may give our sponsors and REACH good life.
Omega School Chicken Farm
Excitement at Omega School is mounting as gifts towards the Chicken Farm have begun to be received from sponsors and friends of REACH. Please identify your gifts for this project as “Omega Chicken Farm.”
Tent Arrives Safely
After several months time a large meeting tent donated by a friend of REACH safely arrived in Jinja. Times were tense as the tent was held “hostage” for a few weeks as duties were assessed on the tent’s determined value. After much prayer and dialog the tent was released for delivery.
The tent will have multiple uses (current and future) : Revivals, conferences, prayer meetings, Aids/HIV awareness, and medical clinics.
REACH is attempting to raise $2500 to cover a portion of the levied duties that were not covered by funds raised locally. If you desire to help with this expense, please identify your gift as “Tent”.
