Dear brother Edmund,

Thank you very much for that fatherly care of reaching our nation by supporting our vision and mission with ARISE. Really we can reach these torn hearts of young people with Arise Skills if we can get enough support. For sure these child soldiers provide a fertile ground for ARISE skills. There are rehabilitation centers in Gulu district which we will use to teach ARISE.

Let us organize for the information you requested and the proper requirements to make this happen. Meanwhile you can watch this video on YouTube to show you the urgent importance of ARISE to these child soldiers click here

Thank you very much brother Edmund, God bless you,
Jude Nyanzi

You can see the photos of mine attached on this email.I am continuing this Tuesday through Wednesday, i hope to to provide better photos.Meanwhile, a lot is coming as we have established so many At Risk Youths in need of our sessions.

ARISE Uganda Successfully Saving At-Risk Youth!

In the 2 photos above, we show Peter, an at-risk youth and once multiple school dropout receiving a certificate from ARISE Foundation Uganda. Peter had dropped out of three schools and after his parents had learned of the ARISE Program, Peter has been able to turn his life around. Peter is now going back to school and ready to take on his life once again.

Every day, hundreds of students quit school in Uganda and having the highest school drop out level in East Africa, ARISE Uganda, has started to effectively change an entire generation of young people who had once given up.
