Progress Report 2 for the Support Disadvantaged Student Interns in Uganda Project

This is our second progress report on our project, “Support Disadvantaged Student Interns in Uganda” in partnership with GlobalGiving. This report covers the period October to December 2018.  

Our Successes

GlobalGiving Membership: We continued to enjoy the “exceptional invite” given to us by the GlobalGiving Foundation to be among their permanent partners. We continued to be permanently featured on the GlobalGiving website, and had access to online fundraising tools. Our Managing Director, Ms. Norah Owaraga, our project team leader, continued to be actively engaged with the GlobalGiving team and her fellow project leaders of thousands of initiatives from around the world that are in partnership with GlobalGiving. Through this engagement we are learning a lot about how to better our organisation; how to more effectively do online fundraising; and how to better utilise funds raised for maximum impact for the greater good of the communities that we serve, the reason for which our organisation was founded.

·         The first, and the more practical way in terms of achievability in the short term, is ensuring the effective use of existing GeneXpert machines.  The reasons for machine downtime and malfunctioning are within the means of the Government to eradicate, through the provision of finances in order to ensure that the machines are well maintained – serviced regularly and as scheduled, as well as repaired promptly when the need arises.
