About Building A Legacy: Brick by Brick

You Can Help Build a Legacy for HIV+ and Vulnerable Children in Uganda

With the opportunity to receive an education, hundreds of Uganda’s HIV+ and most vulnerable children have an opportunity to break the cycle of poverty while rewriting their futures and building new legacies.

10 years ago, we opened Cherish Primary School to bring HIV+ children and children from our community together to receive an education in an inclusive environment where they’re valued, celebrated and encouraged to achieve their God-given potential. 

What started with 3 students in a smaller, older building has expanded to include 230 students, 93 of whom are HIV+ and receiving treatment. The remaining students are living in poverty within the village Cherish is located.

10-year-old Elizabeth is a shining example of the students we serve.

Elizabeth’s favorite subject is science. She dreams of becoming a doctor one day. Thanks to our community of generous supporters, Elizabeth has a shot at making that dream come true. 

Cherish Primary School is the beginning of a new legacy for our community’s most vulnerable and at-risk children. Our student population is growing, but our current building is deteriorating and too small for all our children. 

In order to provide children like Elizabeth with a roomier and richer learning environment, we need to build a new primary school. But we can't do it alone. 

We recently launched our year-end campaign, Building a Legacy, to raise $30,000 – the amount we need to raise by Dec. 31, 2018 in order to start building a new school. All gifts are tax-deductible and will go directly to the primary school building fund.

You can help us bring a Christ-centered education to Uganda's most vulnerable children today so they can continue Building a Legacy tomorrow.

Be a part of Elizabeth’s legacy. Making your year-end gift today!
