Deo’s Story

Our vision is to see educated and skilled young people, inspired by faith, hope and love, transform their communities. This month we are delighted to share one story of how, thanks to the incredible support of people like you, this vision is becoming a reality.

After completing 4 years of secondary school sponsored student, Deo Mitala, was supported to study Automotive Mechanics at a Vocational College in Uganda. 

During the last school holidays, he went to his former primary school and found the school bus broken down. Together with his colleague Ivan and using the skills they had learned from college, Deo was able to fix the school bus! An incredible way to use his new skills to help his community. 

This is one example of the impact the gift of education can have, not just on an individual but on their community also. Deo’s primary school were positively impacted thanks to the education Deo received through the sponsorship programme.
