Charity Night for Children

Life Charity Focus Nyngan branch is holding a fundraiser night at the Nyngan Riverside Tourist Park on August 8, to help with funds towards building a private school in Uganda.

Life Charity Focus Uganda is a community-based, charitable, non-profit organisation based at Budaka, Uganda. 

The overall goal for LCF is improving the livelihoods of orphans and vulnerable children so they can be transformed from helplessness to being able to live a meaningful and sustainable life. 

Public schools in Uganda have up to 400 children in each grade, which makes it almost impossible to teach these children, and only 20 per cent of the children are able to read and write.

Jack and Dione Carter sponsored Moses 22 years ago when he was a child. 

The Carters helped Moses through private schooling and then supported him through university after which he became a health and building inspector. 

Moses is the founder of Life Charity Focus in Uganda and has chosen 176 children in a sponsorship program that needs urgent support. 

Twenty-one children have been sponsored in the past 18 months and most of these have Nyngan sponsor parents whom we would like to thank kindly for their generous support. 

The Joy Blessed Day Care and Primary School opened earlier this year so all the sponsor children will have a better education with about 20 children per class. 

Moses now uses his knowledge to educate his community on health and hygiene. 

He has also been successful with proposals with the United States government for a reading program for 2000 primary school-aged children in his region. 

Public schools in Uganda have up to 400 children in each grade, which makes it almost impossible to teach these children, and only 20 per cent of the children are able to read and write. 

The Joy Blessed Day Care and Primary School aims for all the children to be able to read and write. 

LCF have supplied families on the program with clean seed and fertiliser to help them in growing their own food and some of them are able to generate income from their produce.

Currently the LCF school is at a rented premises and are fundraising towards building a new private school which will cost about $40,000. 

All money raised at the charity night on August 8, will go directly to the school building project. 

It will run from 6pm till midnight and there are some great items up for auction including a family zoo pass with family room at The Cattleman's, Dubbo, helicopter joy flights, a sunset flight over Sydney Harbour and many more. 

Fat Man Don't Dance will be performing and there will be plenty of food and fire drums. Drinks are bring-your-own. 

There is no need to book but tables can be reserved for groups. Tickets are $50 per person and can be purchased on the night. 

The LCF website is now complete and children can be now sponsored from this website at www.lifecharityfocus.com.
