Kabuga Educational Sponsorships
When we still lived in USA, we would just send the money as requested by the pastor of the Kabuga Parish Church. Now we live nearby, we insist on good school reports that show effort and achievement that makes us feel money is well spent.
It gets more complicated. They all go to different schools and some include transport and accommodation in their claims. Some of the kids are becoming very expensive. Some who are not doing well are disadvantaged by having to do too many chores, or living with the threat of violence. Anyway, we are gradually clamping down.
One of the girls pictured here, who doesn't have parents, was kicked out of her uncle's house when we reduced her allowance. She is very sweet. Never demands and tries to make do. We immediately wanted to take her in with us, but have not done that yet. We have to move very cautiously because our two homes are already full. We decided to take her out of high school and put her into cooking classes, so that she will soon be able to support herself by getting a job in someone's house as domestic help.
