Mount Royal Academy Students Undertake Humanitarian Project in East Africa
The students of Mount Royal Academy in Sunapee, New Hampshire have begun an international humanitarian project: providing charitable assistance for 86 poor, orphaned children in the East African country of Uganda. The students’ goal is to secure charitable donations through personal appeals to friends, relatives and other potential benefactors. Donations will be forwarded to a Ugandan priest (the orphans’ guardian) and used to fund several self-sustaining agricultural projects ( e.g., raising cows and goats; growing coffee).The income derived from these projects will help to provide food, medical care, essential services, and educational scholarships for the orphans, thus giving them hope for a better future and an escape from poverty.
An account has been established at Lake Sunapee Bank for receipt of donations in support of this charitable and humanitarian effort. Checks should be made payable to: East Africa Charitable Projects Fund, and mailed to: PO Box 703, New London, NH 03257.
The Fund is registered with the New Hampshire Secretary of State, but donations are not tax-deductible because the Fund is not a 501(c)(3) organization. There are no fundraising fees, so 100% of donations goes directly to the projects in East Africa. Those seeking more information may call Mount Royal Academy at 763-9010.
