“One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”
John F. Kennedy
It takes a few helping hands to make a difference and maybe you can help. You are looking at a picture outside Kashari, Uganda.
Zion Kids Palace Nursery School – Kashari, Mbarara
There is a school there that is being run by Herbert Tushabe and Rachael Nsimenta in a rural part of Uganda and they are on a mission to help the children in this area thrive.
Here is their story in their words:
Racheal and I , undertook a decision to tackle this challenge in July 2012 With a few tools and resources that were available, we started Zion with an emphasis to bring long-lasting measurable social change to an urgent social need for the people in and around Rwobuyenje Kakiika -Kashari.
Due to lack of affordable and accessible early learning and childhood development Centers and the demand around its neighborhood (more than 800 children between age 3 and 6) don’t access early childhood learning (KG education) because the cost of doing this is so high not mentioning the transportation of these kids to and from the available schools in town which costs so much that the poor peasantry parents in this area can’t afford and hence the vulnerability of this young rural children in this area, so they wait to join directly to primary school at age 9 or 10.
After witnessing the adversities that children in these villages encountered, even when those parents that struggled to do so would use motorcycles to ferry
toddlers to school very early in the morning (6 or 7 -3 year olds) on one motorcycle very early in the morning ,that cold…I was moved. Inspiration struck through the startup of this facility so that these services can be availed to these people so accessible and affordable.
Nearly after 3 years of involvement, our dedication grew, and has manifested itself into the a Community Based center -Zion Kids Palace. Four teachers,Racheal Nsimenta, and Mr Tushabe Herbert are now running a full early learning center with 100 kids ,providing them a full KG program with lunch and breakfast.
The philosophy, teach man how to fish, and feed him for a lifetime’ fueled Racheal and I to found Zion. That philosophy still drives our mission to enhance and lift quality of education during early learning stages at the Grass-root. Our desire is that these children will grow active and creative minds, develop a passion for others, and have the courage to act on their beliefs.We focus on the total development of each child’s spiritual, moral, intellectual, social, and physical growth via a faith-based perspective.
What do they need? They need funds to expand the program, to build a school and provide safe transportation for the kids along with materials such as books and toys to improve the outcomes of the school.
Here’s what you can do. You can donate to the program
. You can tell others, you can pass this link on to others. One dollar will make a difference
. Give a dollar and pass the message to 10 other people. Let Herbert and Rachael change the world for the kids they serve. Will you do that today?
You can play a small part and make a difference that will last a lifetime.
