How Your Donations Will Be Used
True Impact is currently working on finishing a security wall at Salem Christian School in Nakyenyi, Uganda. This wall was started in 2022, but we have since lacked the funds to complete the wall. The wall is necessary to keep the children staying in the dormitories safe. The wall will keep out unwanted 'guests' as well as snakes and other critters. The government of Uganda is requiring this wall to be completed in order for the school to continue next year. We need approximately $30,000 to complete the wall. Any amount you give will help us reach our goal.
