Recent Funds Transfer

On your behalf, St. Margaret's transferred
USD 1908.67
to RYDA on July 14th.

This was made up of the proceeds of the Singularity concerts, the steadfast, regular donations of people like Helen who have organised an automatic payment each pay day, on-going small amounts often in the 'RYDA Box' at St. Margaret's church and numerous heartfelt donations from a number of people in St. Margaret's and St. John's congregations and beyond.

Donation Acknowledged - Work Waits for Exams

On July 21st RYDA acknowledged that the funds had arrived in the RYDA account and Director Geoffrey Kyeyune sent thanks to 'all those who supported this cause.'

Planning has begun to proceed as far as possible with the McLean Family Dormitory, the new boys' accommodation building, but the actual work has to wait because all staff and students are currently deeply involved in the examination season.

10th August
Dear Doug,
We have postponed the building and the reason is that we have been busy with exams and preparing for this year's graduation ceremony scheduled to take place on 18th August.
Please I ask for your patience as the process needs my constant supervision.
Your sincerely,
Geoffrey Steven Kyeyune

Any Celebration Gift Certificate

You don't have to wait for Christmas to use a RYDA Gift Certificate. Franklyn didn't. We have an 'any celebration' certificate and he has an 80th birthday coming up. Franklyn asked for several certificates, which we were easily able to annotate for his special celebration. Franklyn is distributing them to family and friends so they know what they can give him for his birthday - their support to RYDA an organisation who's work he deeply values. Use the link to the left to find out more about our certificates.

Wise Choices For Life

Principal Suzan Nabirye has sent a note to let us know that the training in the Wise Choices for Life programme which you supported continues to be put to good use. Recent weeks have been very busy with implementation of new government curriculum and preparation for exams, but RYDA is planning a joint seminar with the local teacher training institute students to share this learning. She comments: We know that the impact already created is vividly felt by young people we have trained so far.
