Construction has been nonstop at God Cares High School, thanks to all of you who have given and continue to give towards our efforts of housing 1,400 students!

As of this month, the first floor of the girls' dorm is almost completed. It will be finished by the time the students return from their term break at the end of the month.

With the first floor complete, 150 girls will be able to move in!

This will alleviate cramped quarters in the kitchen and the first floor of the assembly hall, and we know our students will be excited.
The dorms will be a beautiful building featuring a courtyard in the middle where students can study, do laundry, and hang out. The dorms will be more than a place for students to sleep, they will be a place for students to call home.

To date, we have raised $250,000!

This has given us two foundations and the first floor of the girls' dorm. Our next phase will be to construct the second floor of the girls' dorm, and the projected cost for that section is $100,000. We are grateful for you and the sacrifices you have made, and continue to make, to forge ahead to see this building completed. Please continue to pray as we enter this next phase.
The schooling system in Uganda is broken down into three terms. The first term has ended, and term two will start at the end of May. Between terms students spend time with their families or guardians. They help around the house with chores, and some may look for work to support their families needs.

You may have already received your sponsored student's report card, and you might be wondering how exactly to read it. The grading system is slightly different than here in the U.S. Primary school students have four subjects, which include Math, Science, English, and Social Studies. Lower secondary students have eight compulsory subjects, which include: English, Math, Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Geography, History and Literature, and the student can take up to seven elective classes. Below is a key to understanding the grading system.
If you see that your sponsored student isn’t doing so well in school, please keep him or her in your prayers for they have many unseen challenges ranging from post-traumatic stress to concerns about their family’s well being.
