Volset Foundation is a local Ugandan CBO working towards assisting need and orphaned children by providing them with education and psychosocial support. Through Rose Charities, the organization receives funds from child-sponsors and donors in Canada. Because of this support, this year: two students are receiving support for their university education and three girls have benefited with College education. Four of the children receive secondary and high school education and three children are doing their primary living certificates and will be in secondary school the coming year.

Currently, after completion of her College diploma, one of the girls has offered to teach at the Future Diplomats education Centre school founded in Memory of Doreen Merion Selwood. Viola still continues with her college and pledges to work with the children in the same school after completion of her college. Milly joined a vocational school for skills training. All the students are doing really well and are pleased to be able to attend school.

This Year, Rose Charities has helped Volset build a three-classroom and 2 offices block and over 60 children are benefiting from it. This block has been named after Merion Doreen Selwood, the first Volunteer to work with VOLSET who really worked hard to bring a difference to this developing organization. She paved a way for other volunteers and sponsors to support the organization.

Continued funding through Rose Charities this year saw a new roof installed over of the children’s dormitory which is estimated to house 60 children when it is furnished with all the needed beds. Electricity has been installed to give light to the children residing here. The top picture shows some of the children in front of their new dormitory.

This year, we are fund-raising to build 5 class rooms to replace the temporary wooden structure which has almost been eaten up by termites. We are also raising funds for supplies and furniture for the dormitory and we are always looking for educational sponsors for the children.
