Tomorrow marks the start of the new school term for the children, following a three-week summer break. The teachers have freshened up the classrooms, and food supplies are fully stocked!
This term holds extra significance for the P7 class, as they're preparing for their final primary exams. They must pass these exams to be accepted into secondary school, however a pass might not guarantee their transition to secondary school due to the fees, which costs £35 per child every month. Unfortunately, families in the local community can't afford this cost. Presently, we're supporting eleven children through secondary school from the proceeds of coffee sales. Our aim is to assist the current P7 class, to make that possible, we need to boost our coffee sales. To reach this goal, we must generate an additional £500 each month, which is equivalent to selling an extra 60 bags of 1-kilogram Elgon Roast coffee per month. We're exploring new ways to sell more coffee and also promoting our subscription option on our website.
We're committed to supporting these children through coffee, but if anyone wants to donate money directly, they can contact Hannah. Any support is appreciated to keep the children in school learning and achieving their dreams.
As Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
Hannah and Reuben will be travelling to Uganda on October 17th and would like to bring clothes for the children. You can donate directly to our business bank account or send used clothes for us to take. We need items like t-shirts, shorts, skirts, dresses, and jumpers for boys and girls aged 3-13 years. If you'd like to make a donation, please email Hannah for the bank account details. While in Uganda, we'll take a group of children to the local market to choose and purchase clothes. This not only gives the children a choice in what they wear but also supports the local economy.
Thank you for your continued support which is enabling over 260 children to attend school everyday. Please follow us on Instagram (kickstart.coffee) for daily updates on the teachers and children.
