Starting the Summer of 2016, we are launching our new volunteer program. Journey with us to Kirugu, Uganda as we develop a series of sustainable projects to help our community continue to thrive. To learn more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A majority of our students are at school from 7:00am-5:00pm, six days a week without a meal. Our urgent task is to provide adequate and substantial nutrition to each and every student while they are at school. Food is an absolute necessity and is conducive to proper learning and retaining information. Our children are so desperate to learn that they push their intense hunger to the side. Rays of Grace is doing everything in our power to create a mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually healthy and safe place to learn.
We are diving into the immediate needs of our school structure, specifically in regards to providing regular salaries for our staff at Mountain of Olives. Our teachers are not paid consistently, yet they still show up every day, eager to teach and educate our students. Rays of Grace is working to provide Teacher Sponsorship to ensure that our teachers are able to receive regular paychecks. In turn, they can provide for their families, send their own children to school and take ownership for the hard work they pour into our students.
