Posted: Mon, May 09, 2016 | By: Rays of Light Orphanage School
Clarissa Chumfong was intrigued when she heard about Brighter Brains Institute’s Scholastic Book orders for BiZoHa schools. She contacted us about running one herself for another humanist school. We were excited to help her out with that request! We suggested, and she agreed, that it would be fun to run a Book Club for Rays of Light Orphanage School in Kyarumba.
This is what she has set up: you can order books at the link below for Rays of Light Orphanage School - Order Closes June 10th, 2016
Rays of Light Orphanage School is a new humanist school in Kyarumba, Uganda, in the foothills of the Ruwenzori mountains. The region is very beautiful, but it has a high rate of orphans due to AIDS, civil malaria, and other diseases.
We encourage you to help these children, by purchasing books for them.

The online catalog price includes all shipping and handling costs, though you will see a 6% tax added at checkout to cover Uganda customs tax.
To contribute, you simply select one or more books to place in your shopping cart, click “Dispatch to School” and complete the transaction online directly with Scholastic.
Where the order form requires Child’s Name and Child’s Class, please just use “Library” or “Any” in both fields.
Our previous orders have gone to Kasese Humanist Primary School Bizoha Campus, and Mother Giver Humanist Nursery School. You can check out our news story and photos showing the children receiving the first Book Order shipment at Bizoha.
The children at Vision Care will be delighted to receive a similar shipment.
