Today teachers and parents of Kasiisi Weston Starts Preschool celebrated with mortar boards and a brass band as the the first class to graduate from The Kasiisi Weston Stars Preschool recieved their diplomas, and the Kasiisi Project celebrated 15 years of your generous donations which have allowed us to make a difference to so many children’s lives in Uganda.
Today is also “Giving Tuesday“, a new tradition following on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, established to provide a balance to the holiday spending and to offer opportunities for charitable donations as the financial year winds up. This year “Giving Tuesday” in the US coincides with a very special day for our graduating class as they move onto Kindergarten, but it is also a big milestone for the whole project. We still have work to do before the preschool is completed but today we saw the fruits of 5 years of generosity from multiple donors, and the hard work of many people pay off. In particular we thank Chris Thurston, The Nuttman family, The Coldbrook Fund, First Parish Church, Weston, the parents and teachers of Weston Windows Preschool and quilting friends from Ohio and Connecticut for enabling us to watch these children take their first steps on the road to academic success, by providing them with a quality preschool education.
If you still wish to make charitable donations before the tax year ends and have not yet decided where to donate, please consider the Kasiisi Project. Your gift of education is a gift forever, it will not break, wear out or get lost. Donations can be made via the Pay Pal button at www.kasiisiproject.org , or by cheque payable to The Kasiisi Project,mailed to Elizabeth Ross, 64 Linnaean St., Cambridge, MA 02138.
Information about supporting one of our students through 4 years of High School will be posted in the next few days.
