About Ugandan School Supply Drive
Join the Bloom Kids school supply drive in support of AsOne Ministries' Scholars Program in Uganda by bringing school supplies on Sundays, running from August 25th through September 8th.
ABOUT THE SCHOLARS PROGRAM
The Scholars Program is one of the major ways we work to combat poverty for vulnerable children and their families in Uganda. Through the Scholars Program, we have over 80 kids (ages 4 to 17) who receive education at a local school, weekly discipleship programming on our base, mentoring from our local staff, and access for their families to other programs through AsOne. Each week the Scholars gather at our base with our local staff for fellowship, worship, food, teaching, small group discussions, sports and games. Three times a year the scholars also attend a week-long camp for further teaching, community building, leadership training, meals, and more. We believe this is one of the primary ways God has called us to develop future leaders in Uganda who know their identity in Christ and are empowered and equipped to shape and change the future of their communities for generations.
HOW WILL THIS HELP
These items will help us to further the Scholars Programming and give our Scholars more hands on activities and experiences. For the most part, these will be new activities for students that they don't experience at home or school, and will make the Scholars Program even more vibrant, fun, and impactful!
