LJHS Uganda Education Campaign

La Jolla High School U-TOUCH Club Uganda Education Campaign 2021

is calling all LJHS students, faculty, staff, families & friends to give “The Gift of Education” for our Uganda Sponsored Students

The sponsored students of Northern Uganda are grateful for the educational support that LJHS and MMS have provided for the past 13 years.  It is only because of this kind generosity that 35 orphans have had the opportunity to attend school, have a brighter future and help their families and communities advance.

Please Donate: May  18th – June 4th

La Jolla High School U-TOUCH Club is challenging each class to voluntarily raise $350 or more during the next month to keep these Ugandan orphans in school. LJHS is committed to supporting these sponsored students, which amounts to $7,000 this year. Therefore, it is critical that we please receive your voluntary support! You are encouraged to take this short letter home and share with your family, friends and neighbors.

Multiply your efforts and ask others to consider donating. 100% of your donation reaches the Ugandan sponsored students and related U-TOUCH programs. Additionally, individual classes that collect $300 or more and the teacher whose classes collect the greatest amount in donations will all receive a COVID safe treat. LJHS is collaborating with U-TOUCH, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization by creating U-TOUCH Technology Hubs with free computer training and Internet access for the sponsored students and community. All donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowable by law and every donor will receive a receipt. For further information contact: deb.plotkin@u-touch.org / 858.945.3220. Please help our sponsored Ugandan students fulfill their dreams and have a future to help their families and communities improve employment and economic conditions. Please help change the course of the sponsored students’ lives and break the cycle of poverty! Used devices in good condition; phones, tablets, laptops would be deeply appreciated by the students. Please give any devices to your teacher. They will be wiped clean of all information & taken to the students in Uganda. Connect with the students by email or WhatsApp! Thank you! U-TOUCH our lives!

Multiply your impact and share this link with friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues for the LJHS student referenced to receive credit for donations.

I have truly enjoyed supporting the U-TOUCH campaign over the years.  It gives LJHS students a chance to connect with and support students living in much different conditions than their own.  It is one of the few organizations where you can see your support in action and receive updates on their progress.
