Rays of Light Humanist Orphanage School is located in Kyarumba, Uganda. It is just outside of the town, on a hill surrounded by a banana grove. The orphanage school has three classrooms that are made of mud and branches, and there are 225 students.
Brighter Brains Institute is seeking to help these children. We have previously provided them with occasional lunch food (thanks to Ted Peters), a medical clinic (thanks to Eric Oliver) and books (thanks to Bob Pellissier).
Rays of Light Humanist Orphanage School is one of the four schools in Kyarumba that has recently accepted our Humanist Principles. Our relationship with Rays of Light necessitates that we help them as much as we can—we have previously purchased the older school girls AFRIpads, and we will be sending them books soon. In exchange, all the new humanist school administrators will add “Humanist” to their school title, they will post the Ten Humanist Principles, and they will deliver lectures on Humanism to their pupils.
At the present time we are hoping to find sponsors for the orphans at Rays of Light Humanist Orphanage School in the photos below. As you can see, their parents have died in multiple ways.
The cost to sponsor these children is very inexpensive.
Baby Class (PreSchool) - $27 a year
P.1 to P.2 (1st & 2nd Grade) - $29 a year
P.3 to P.4 (3rd & 4th Grade) - $39 a year
P.5 to P.6 (5th &6th Grade) - $46 a year
Note: in Uganda a child is called an orphan if one parent has died; they are called “double-orphans” if both parents are dead. Due to poverty, there is considerable hardship even if only one parent has died.
Please let us know which child you have sponsored, by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can cc Muhindo Zakalia, director of Rays of Light Humanist Orphanage School, at email@example.com if you have questions.
Thank you for your kindness.
After your donation, you will immediately be sent a tax deductible receipt, and an ebook called “Orphans of the Rwenzori” by Bwambale Robert Musubaho, a BBI director. We will inform the Rays of Light Orphanage Humanist School that you have sponsored that child, and you will be sent a photograph of the sponsored child holding a Thank You card.
Three times a year you will get a progress report on how they are doing in school. You are welcome to visit - Brighter Brains Institute visits annually. If you can’t visit we are happy to take your sponsored child a gift from you.
