Stone Quarry School

One of the worlds best kept and hidden secrets is the atrocity of Ugandan children working in stone quarries. Approximately 3 million children ages 4 to 18 years pound stones daily in life threatning quarries. Without proper clothing, without shoes and protective equipment; these "young Ugandan slaves" are often brutalized, raped and turn to prostitution due to the " horrific on job duties! " For all this abuse, the children are daily paid $1.25; enabling them to buy 2 potatoes, bananas and tea in order to survive.

We have been with these precious children, whereas thru sponserships; 4Uganda have placed some girls in proper boarding schools and provided essentials. The cost per child is $500 a year; wired directly to the schools Ugandan bank accounts. Visiting 2 community schools we assist and spending time with our girls; has given us indebt understanding of their needs. Only through education will the children escape the tragedies of extreme poverty.

Building a new school near the quarries including grades (US system) 1 thru 12 is our goal. The building costs shall be $60,000 including much of the interior furnishings. We invite schools, individuals, foundations, organizations to become actively involved. Traveling to the school, volunteering time if possible and bringing your families are encouraged. This truly is an opportunity to "give back" and share in "the gift of life, freedom and empowerment for children who have nothing."

We look forward to hearing from you and beginning this blessing!
